Connecting the IT Executives of Today to Cultivate the Leaders of Tomorrow…
Conduit Nation serves as a facilitator between corporate technology executives and suppliers of technology to gather socially, taking the business relationship outside of the office setting. The company organizes unique gatherings during which this closely-tied technology community may raise a glass and network, while celebrating IT initiatives in the social sector. Each series of Technology Ball gatherings often culminates in a formal Gala, which punctuates a season of powerful networking and showcases the commitment of Technology Leaders and Sponsoring Corporations to support education for technology through our nonprofit beneficiary, STEM students from UTD.
