Largest Tech Conferences

At Alten Capital we regularly get asked by technology services CEOs and sales leaders what are the key industry conferences and tech gatherings they should be tracking. We attempted to compile a short list of relevant technology conferences, primarily from the US.

The list below is a quick list of large technology conferences, primarily in the US. We added data on the primary focus of the conference, month in which it starts, location, and the estimated attendance.

There will be other events that pertain to a particular technology expertise or industry that could be of interest to leaders, depending on their key horizontal or vertical focus areas. Nevertheless, we thought this is a good starting point for broad tech gatherings.
