The 6th Annual Black Is Tech Conference takes place on August 19 – 21, 2024. The Conference this year is an in-person only experience as we take a break from the virtual portion of the Conference. Black Is Tech 2024 will include Speaking Stages with over 150 speakers and 5 tracks, a full day of Workshops (Workshop Day), an Expo with over 50 companies recruiting, Happy Hours, and so much more…all IN-PERSON in Houston, TX.
In addition to the core Conference activities, we are also introducing the Houston Black Is Tech week. Houston Black Is Tech Week takes place from August 19 – 24 and will include a number of activations across the city of Houston, including the Senior Developer Summit, The Energy 2.0 Summit, The Web3 Summit among other events. Stay tuned for more information on the Houston Black Is Tech Week line-up of events.
This year, we are expecting 6,000 attendees in-person for the Black Is Tech Conference main event and a total of 10,000 attendees across all Houston Black Is Tech Week activations.
Our goal is to use our platform to create connections between our audiences and also provide the resources necessary to create significant impact in the tech industry. Speakers share their experiences and outlook on the state of tech and its future impact on the world, especially for Black communities; attendees learn skills they need to be competitive and become significant players in an ever-changing tech ecosystem; companies connect with attendees as well as enhance their diversity initiatives and workforce.
This year, 6000+ professionals, students and entrepreneurs will be part of the movement – one that creates a future where Black representation and impact in tech is real and respected.
We are coming with so much more at the Black Is Tech Conference this year including a return to full in-person activities. Attendees can expect to experience the best of in-person connections, learning, networking and so much more.
Stay tuned for our official schedule announcements for the Conference this year!
