Description

Dickie, McCamey & Chilcote, P.C. Presents:

The Pittsburgh Tech & Data Summit

Hosted by Duquesne University School of Law

Sponsored by: JLL, CASTUS, and Microsoft

Pittsburgh has grown into a global player in the advancement of technology in many aspects. While there are a multitude of conferences, events, and discussions occurring all over Pittsburgh every week, the conversation remains mostly siloed among the different sectors touching the technology industry in Pittsburgh. Dickie McCamey’s “Pittsburgh Tech & Data Summit” will serve as a multidisciplinary event, gathering over 150 professionals from the tech, legal, and business sectors to encourage a comprehensive exchange of ideas to promote growth and progress across those sectors and beyond. The Summit’s theme revolves around diverse perspectives from our region’s leaders on the most pressing issues regarding the use of technology, interaction with consumers' data, and the state of the tech industry in our region.
