A Year's Worth of IT Education at One Event

Get critical insight into the latest IT strategies, best practices, and solutions.

Find out what's working and what's not to help you drive your business and career forward.

Discover what's now, what's next, what's "x."

Interop ITX combines a trusted Conference program with a vendor-neutral Business Hall. We'll help you fit the pieces of the technology puzzle together.

 

  • You'll interact with a passionate community of thousands of IT leaders and industry experts, leading and emerging vendors, and colleagues who want to connect and share experiences.
  • At the Business Hall, you'll have the opportunity to meet with a full range of leading and emerging vendors to compare, test, and experience their solutions firsthand.
  • Relax and connect with fellow attendees at a range of special events. Kick off the week with our Opening Night Block Party in the Business Hall, take in some fresh air during a 5k Fun Run, and join us for drinks at our Official Party at Topgolf.  

The Only Independent Event For Tech Leaders!

With a mixture of hands-on, panel and lecture sessions, you will experience a variety of high-quality presentations centered around the event’s six core themes.

As a technology leader, you need to build a world-class full stack IT strategy that is sustainable and scalable 365 days a year. Stay relevant and get exposed to objective views at Interop ITX this May.
