From autonomous vehicles and reusable rockets, to ubiquitous VR headsets and universally-popular AR games, high tech went mainstream in 2016.

It’s not only SpaceX, Google, and Niantics that have challenged the status quo. It’s our local and national tech communities who are the catalysts for large-scale innovation and we're celebrating their wins!

Tech in Motion’s End of Year Celebration is a can't-miss opportunity to network with 3,000+ tech professionals and enthusiasts across our 11 chapters. We're celebrating everything we love about this community!

Join us December 8th for an evening of cocktails and keynotes. We'll toast to the year we’ve had and share in our excitement over what’s to come in 2017.
