session submissions

Tech Alley highly encourages a wide variety of topics, languages and availability for inclusion. Though mainstream, current topics are appreciated. Special consideration will be given to sessions that address gender, ethnic and economic diversity and inclusion. All topics will be considered, though the organizing committee has final discretion on all approved sessions.

what to expect

All approved sessions will be added to the Tech Alley Denver website. Links to the Tech Alley Denver events will also be included on the Tech Alley Reno and Las Vegas websites, as well.

Session speakers are highly encouraged to promote their own panel and session, as well as the Tech Alley event, both when being accepted as a session, and ahead of the scheduled event date.

On the day of the event, we will gather collectively to kick-off the day long event. Then, we will break out into sessions.

Sessions should be 30-45-Minutes in length, and may be recorded.

Sessions will rotate on the hour. 

Attendees will be able to choose which sessions they would like to attend, and will follow a guide in order to navigate between sessions.

Networking may be done in any public access area.

Speakers are highly encouraged to attend other panels and discussions, as well as the end of day networking and mixer.
