TechBirmingham will host a business networking event on April 13 at Regions Field in conjunction with the open series of the 2015 Barons baseball season. The event, Keep IT Local, provides tech-related businesses the opportunity to network with each other, increase their visibility, and meet with representatives from several large local corporations.
“Keep IT Local fulfills the promise of Birmingham’s tech community. We all want organic growth but need help connecting. TechBirmingham and events like Keep IT Local provides a vehicle for us to do just that,” said Carlo Romano, Vice President of Business Development at Isotope11.
“It’s important for Birmingham’s big companies to do business with smaller, local companies when possible. Birmingham has tremendous talent, and the large companies can help make this pool deeper. I applaud companies like Blue Cross/Blue Shield for seeking out local vendors to help address some of their IT needs,” said Glenn Kinstler, Relationship Manager at 2B Solutions.
Format: Keep IT Local is a half-day event, lasting approximately 6 hours (8:00 am – 2:00 pm) with the opportunity to network with local businesses big and small in an intimate, fun setting.
