“I don’t have to move to New York and I don’t have to move to Silicon Valley. I can stay here and have an amazing career!”

“I don’t have to move to New York and I don’t have to move to Silicon Valley. I can stay here and have an amazing career!”

ITPalooza took another big step to reinforce South Florida’s reputation as a technology center at December’s annual gathering, which moved to the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention Center.

Attendees were able to take one of 12 different educational tracks, says Tammy Kennedy, who is the 2017-18 president of the South Florida Technology Alliance, which supports the show. Some of the material, such as four packed sessions about agile project management, provided appeal that went beyond technology companies.

The student track helped young local talent realize they can stay in South Florida and find fulfilling work. “I don’t have to move to New York and I don’t have to move to Silicon Valley. I can stay here and have an amazing career,” Kennedy says of the resulting mindset.

“Content is king. We knocked it out of the park,” she adds. Moreover, “among the panelists and moderators, 98 percent were all here from our own backyard—all C-level executives. The fact that we had so many execs and great information and people getting together for ITPalooza was truly amazing.”

Altogether, it fit the alliance’s mission: “Learn, connect and grow.”
