The Ohio Tech Summit is back after a successful debut last year, this time in Columbus.
A year after holding its inaugural summit in Cleveland, OhioX will bring its flagship conference to the Ohio Union at Ohio State University on May 18. The nonprofit trade group expects a sellout with more than 480 attendees and a 100-person waitlist.
Ohio Tech Summit, 2022
“It's our biggest event ever, and it comes at a time when Ohio has incredible momentum,” says OhioX President Chris Berry. “This year, we’ll focus on ‘Building the Silicon Heartland’ and three key ingredients that are making Ohio a world-class hub for tech and innovation: community, culture, and capital.”
The momentum Berry refers to is most evident in Intel’s $20+ billion semiconductor campus, a project that’s garnered worldwide attention since it was announced in January 2022.
Attendees will get a “Built in Ohio” HOMAGE t-shirt, a follow-up to the popular “Silicon Heartland” shirts that OhioX and HOMAGE collaborated on.
The “Building the Silicon Heartland” theme represents a whole lot more than just computer chips. Summit attendees will meet tech pros from all corners of Ohio.
J.P. Nauseef, President and CEO of JobsOhio, is among a variety of speakers that includes startup founders, Fortune 500 executives, and leaders from incubators and higher education. There will be full panels, breakout sessions, and a new award to celebrate women in tech called Ohio Trailblazers.
