2017 MHTA Spring Conference: May 9

Always a good conference. Some topics are pretty industry specific but the policy stuff is interesting to a wider audience and the trade show is great…

Be sure to save the date for our 2017 MHTA Spring Conference, coming up on May 9!

Each year MHTA hosts a gathering of 700 science and technology leaders and professionals that highlights local companies, their breakthroughs and the people behind them.

We’re holding the conference at a new venue this year: the Minneapolis Depot Renaissance. We will be featuring more than 15 breakout sessions in addition to our keynote speakers. Conference tracks will focus on digital transformation, cybersecurity and Minnesota’s leadership in the next wave of innovation.

Exhibit space is also returning to the conference for the first time in a few years! If you are interested in speaking, submitting an idea, sponsoring, or exhibiting at Spring Conference let us know by contacting organizers at news@mhta.org.

We’re also excited to announce that Neel Kashkari, President of Minneapolis Federal Reserve Bank, will be one of our keynote speakers! Kashkari is the 13th president of the Minneapolis Federal Reserve Bank. He was born and raised Ohio and first worked as an aerospace engineer. Later he attended the Wharton School of Business and covered the technology security sector for Goldman Sachs. Ten years ago the Secretary of the Treasury tapped Kashkari to administer the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) during the financial crisis. Kashkari is currently a voting member of the Federal Reserve’s policy-setting panel.
