Tech Briefing

The Tech Briefing is an entertaining, informative, and fast-moving event open to the public and appealing to a broad audience. It is not a dull science conference. We feature 10 presenters who each speak for just five minutes about their innovative technologies, designs, and products. This is your opportunity to learn firsthand why we now call Winston-Salem “The City of Arts and Innovation”!

You hear from biotechnology, advanced manufacturing, and IT companies. These innovations are improving all our lives and they are being created here in our community. You will leave the Tech Briefing saying, “Wow! I had no idea things like that are happening right here in Winston-Salem and Forsyth County!”

The 2017 Tech Briefing will be held on Tuesday, November 14, from 8-10 a.m. at the Oak Grove Center at Forsyth Technical Community College. The Tech Briefing is FREE to attend, but seating is limited and REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED! Click here to register to attend!
