It’s been an exciting week for the Georgia technology community! Georgia has been continuously growing into an immense technology hub for all types of companies. From startups to Fortune 500’s, we can say that we have it all. Over the last 10 years, this community has experienced a great deal of growth and positive changes. I’m thoroughly inspired by the innovation and opportunities that have come with the increase of technology companies. I know the Georgia tech ecosystem will only continue growing and improving with time and I’m excited to see these changes.

With that being said, TAG has been able to bring this expanding community together through our annual Georgia Technology Summit this past week!

Here’s a recap of GTS:

This week, we welcomed over 1,200 tech professionals to our event! Each of TAG’s 23 Professional Societies had an opportunity to showcase their upcoming events, discuss pressing topics, and welcome potential members. Many touched on upcoming technology trends, held Q&A’s about their groups, and networked with attendees. Georgia Technology Summit 2021 was a great success and allowed us to connect with the Georgia tech ecosystem personally – more than 2,000 times! I’d like to recognize Kristin Janacek, the winner of our renowned TAG Impact Award, for her significant contributions to TAG and the TAG Marketing Society! I’d also like to congratulate the winners of the inaugural TAG Technology Awards: individual winners James Gaithwayte, Gary Brantley, and Barry Hodges, and company winners NXT Communications, Curricula, FeatureSpace, Idemia, and NCR Corporation.

Thank you to everyone who attended the event and our sponsors who made this possible! And a special thank you to our phenomenal GTS committee chairs Ron McMurtire and Christina Critzer for their hard work and long hours to put on this world-class event.

With GTS behind us, TAG is looking forward to staying engaged with all members throughout the year at Fintech SouthConvergesociety events, and more!

Have a great weekend,

Larry K. Williams
President & CEO, Technology Association of Georgia (TAG)
