High Tech Conference Is Biggest Yet

By Wendy Suares

This year's Conference On High Technology, put on by the Mississippi Technology Alliance, was the biggest yet.

500 people from 11 different states attended the two day conference at the TelCom Center.

The eighth annual event displayed the very latest from tech companies. Vendors from the public and private sector, along with researchers at universities, come each year to network and showcase their innovations.

80 different vendors participated this year, including several emerging Mississippi companies. "We have a lot be proud of," said MS Technology Alliance President and CEO Randy Goldsmith. 

"We have some terrific centers of excellence that will lead to brand new companies, brand new investment opportunities, and brand new growth opportunities for the state," he said.

Goldsmith says the growth of the internet over the last 15 years is responsible for the increasing focus on new technology.
