Community Giveback

On behalf of the planning committee and honorary advisors, we are delighted to welcome you to the 2016 Gateway to Innovation Conference!

Maintaining a competitive edge with innovative IT is critical for companies and organizations of all sizes as we all are tasked to do more with less.  The annual Gateway to Innovation Conference provides a unique opportunity for our region’s IT leadership to gather, to explore ways to maintain a competitive advantage in this global economy, and to grow the IT industry in the St. Louis region. We hope the event provides you many opportunities to learn, engage with other IT professionals, and gain inspiration from regional successes and our national speakers.

Last year’s conference was a huge success with more than (1,400+) attendees. Our focus this year is to continue to bring nationally-known resources to the conference, to provide opportunities to network, and to recognize the many types of work being done in our community.  Gateway to Innovation is the premier IT innovation conference in the St. Louis region and is supported by outstanding organizers, partners and sponsors without whom this world-class event would not be possible. 

 We look forward to seeing you at  the 2016 Gateway to Innovation Conference.
