Tech It Out is a cutting-edge celebration of new technologies, innovation, STEM and Student Outreach, leadership, expert speakers, and influential technology Leaders in the Rocky Mountain region.

Next year’s full day conference will:

  • Continue the program’s quest to demystify technology for industry professionals at all levels and across all disciplines
  • Offer a creative forum to explore diversity in tech
  • Inspire participants to advance their careers in cable and technology
  • Support STEM Student Outreach to local High School and College students.

We are looking for nationally recognized speakers who can make a dynamic contribution to our 2018 Tech It Out event! Click here to learn more.

  • SUPPORT THE EVENT AS A SPONSOR

    The success of Tech It Out is largely dependent on sponsor participation. The proceeds support the event and fund the student scholarships which enable students from local high schools and colleges considering a career in cable to attend. Please note that it is not a fundraiser for the chapter.

    Please join us in making this year’s WICT RM Tech It Out another success!
