About SMB Tech Fest

SMB TechFest is a combination of business & technical training. Each venue date has a unique combination to offer attendees a breadth of experiences. This means some events will be 60/40 split on content and others will be 100% technical. This is intentional as the SMB community has business & technical focused individuals and the goal is to bring value to each.

SMB TechFest is designed to offer expert topic speakers. The key benefit of SMB TechFest is many topics and solutions in one venue. So it’s concentrated deep learning. There are no distractions from waiting for other attendees to “catch up” with the instructor. Just focused learning at the speed of a talented expert.
