Nex-Tech hosting Tech Edge Conference in June


Nex-Tech, a leader in the information technology industry, will host a technology conference June 12 for IT professionals called Tech Edge. The one-day conference will be in Hays on the campus of Fort Hays State University inside Memorial Union.

The Tech Edge Conference will kick off with keynote speaker Mitch Holthus, the voice of the Kansas City Chiefs.

National technology partners of Nex-Tech will be present to visit with attendees, as well as display the latest in business technology. Conference attendees will have the opportunity to join breakout sessions, where experts will discuss specific technologies in depth. The Federal Bureau of Investigation will present on cybercrimes that can affect businesses.

"By leveraging our technology partnerships, we are bringing some of the best technology providers from around the world to western Kansas," said Steve Riat, Nex-Tech sales manager. "One thing we continually hear from our customers is that tightening budgets constrain travel, and they have been unable to get the training and knowledge they want. Nex-Tech has brought the best of technology to people in western Kansas."

Tech Edge is designed to be an educational event for IT professionals. Technology constantly is changing, and Nex-Tech wants to help professionals stay up-to-date. Prize-A-Palooza will close down the day with more than $15,000 in technology prizes given away to attendees.
