Techweek announced the eight cities they will travel to this year with an anticipated attendance level of over 40,000 attendees. The technology festival will be celebrating its 5th anniversary this year and will be expanding to two new cities, Toronto (week of July 25th, 2016) and Dallas (week of November 14th, 2016). Expanding into Dallas was an easy decision as it has quickly turned into a thriving world-metropolis with a bustling business market, along with Toronto being known for their bourgeoning tech scene.
Techweek will remain in its current markets from 2015, including: Detroit (week of May 2nd, 2016), Chicago (week of June 20th, 2016), Kansas City (week of September 12, 2016), New York (week of October 10th, 2016), Miami (week of November 7th, 2016), and Los Angeles (week of November 28th, 2016).
“We are absolutely delighted to head back to Detroit, Chicago, Kansas City, New York, Miami, and Los Angeles,” said Techweek CEO, Katy Lynch. “I’m thrilled to be expanding our mission to Dallas and Toronto this year to shine a national and local spotlight on the people, companies, and initiatives that make these cities such an innovative tech scene.”
