2024 Industry Leader Forum – Tech

March 14 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am EDT

Tech constantly evolves, affecting every industry and business. Tech companies, and the IT teams at tech-enabled companies, are driving exciting innovations daily, while simultaneously improving operational efficiency, managing risk and meeting evolving customer expectations. As our region makes major strides in tech-based investment and growth, collaboration has never been more critical.

The 2024 BNP Industry Leaders Forum (ILF) dialogue will revolve around the application of technology and its impact on our region, including Buffalo’s recent Regional Tech Hub designation by the federal government, how we market Western New York to a national and global audience, the health of our start-up ecosystem, and the importance of industry-specific platforms.

Join us at the March 14TH  Tech ILF for a discussion on Everyday Tech: Cyber Security and AI Across All Industries 

The Speakers  

Dottie Gallagher, BNP’s President & CEO, will provide an update on Buffalo’s Tech Hub designation and its application for generational federal investment in tech infrastructure.
