What is TECHpalooza?

An interactive technology conference featuring speakers around the most requested topics around, interactive exhibits and some of the most innovative companies exhibiting their tech. We aim to be one of Florida’s largest tech conferences by 2025!

What makes it unique?

We are all about the technology! No celebrity hype. No pitch contests. No job fair. Just lots of great speakers, panelists, interactive exhibitors and activities, and an awesome chance to do some real networking. This year’s theme is AI.
