About The Keynote
Intel Chief Evangelist and Futurist Steve Power Brown is responsible for building and articulating a clear vision of the future of computing and the exciting experiences that it will enable in the next decade and beyond.

Conference Display Tables
The Conference Planning Committee has made provisions for tables where you can display information about your company, area or region.
This is meant to be a low-key information sharing opportunity. We ask that you have someone staff your table before the start of the conference, during breaks and the lunch hour to answer questions and provide information about your displays. People tending the display tables must also be registered for the conference.
If you are interested in reserving a display table for the conference, please complete the “Display Table Request” form with the contact person’s name and return it by April 14.
Fee for a display table: $35
