TUCSON, Ariz., Sept. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Arizona Technology Council will host its Tucson Tech + Business Expo on October 16, 2013, connecting a diverse group of Tucson-based large and small technology and manufacturing companies to share capabilities and uncover new business opportunities. The event will feature company representatives from Raytheon, Universal Avionics, National Instruments, Honeywell and B/E Aerospace who will present their business requirements to an audience of more than 30 companies who are interested in building supplier relationships.
"The Tucson Tech and Business Expo accelerates business development for our members," said Alex Rodriguez, director of the Southern Arizona Office of the Arizona Technology Council. "Gauging from the fantastic response we've received to date and the fact that we're on track to sell-out, it's clear that our members are ready to grow faster. This signature event helps our regional firms uncover new opportunities within the region itself as well as compete and win in a global economy."
On-site registration will begin and the Expo will open at 12:30 p.m. at the Tucson Jewish Community Center located at 3800 E. River Road, Tucson, Arizona, 85718. City of Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild will take the stage at 1:00 p.m. to present the Tucson Tech Expo Business Leader of the Year Award, followed by a keynote address. The award will be presented each year to a deserving business leader who has made significant contributions that help make Arizona "the fastest growing tech hub in the nation" consistent with the vision of the Arizona Technology Council.
Contract manufacturers, engineering firms, technology providers and business services companies will be presenting their capabilities throughout the day. Immediately after the presentations, the exhibits will be open and the Council will host its monthly After5 Tech Mixer in the exhibition area. In addition, the Expo will give exhibitors and attendees plenty of time for one-on-one networking and to showcase their portfolio of services and technologies.
