TESTIMONIALS

" SMB TechFest is simply A “Must Go” Event. As a technology service provider and business owner I strive to participate in technology events to keep myself up-to-date with the trending technologies in IT industry. And I also look for networking events where I can learn from other business owners who are facing and dealing with the same challenges as I do. Dave has successfully created this amazing quarterly event that provides both. I do not want to miss any of SMB TechFest events, because it provides an amazing lineup of speakers and vendors, and an IT Mixer for knowledge sharing and best practices like no other event. "
