As a hard-working technology professional, you know how beneficial networking can be to growing your relationships and knowledge base. Networking forums are a great opportunity to meet like-minded people and share information about your favorite topics, but it can be hard to know where to look or how to choose the right event for you.
At RBTC, we’ve got you covered. It’s our mission to connect the Roanoke-Blacksburg region’s stellar technology talent through inspiring and informative gatherings. Our intentional programming helps foster meaningful relationships and facilitate growth for both our members and Southwest Virginia’s technology sector.
“The technology and innovation community is on fire in the Roanoke-Blacksburg region,” says RBTC Associate Director, Taylor Spellman, “ There is so much opportunity on the horizon for our partners and businesses in the region as well as those who would like to get more involved in tech.”
What is Tech & Toast?
One great way to network with other technology and business professionals in the region is RBTC’s signature event, Tech & Toast.
“Tech and Toast is a fantastic way to meet great connections, have relevant conversations and learn about what’s on the horizon for the RBTC, our members and our community,” said Taylor Spellman, RBTC Associate Director.
There’s a reason this event has always been a favorite: it offers relevant technology topics that resonate with any level member and professional. Tech & Toast events are held quarterly and typically alternate between Blacksburg and Roanoke locations for a truly regional experience. You’ll begin with an hour of socializing before diving into the program which could feature roundtable “talks with a purpose,” panel discussions, or key speakers. We’ll keep you fueled with lots of coffee, a light breakfast, and plenty of opportunities for conversation.
What Expect from Tech & Toast 2022
The RBTC is building more than ever, and you can expect to be part of that growth when you participate in Tech & Toast. Now is the perfect time to jump in! By participating in Tech & Toast, you’ll join conversations that are shaping the technology sector in the Roanoke-Blacksburg region. You can even join a committee that deals with topics you care about: Women in Technology, Agile Meetups, Cyber Security, Business Development, and Beer & Biotech.
Tech & Toast kicks off at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, March 30 at the VTCRC Training & Events Center in Blacksburg. We’ll take the time to hear from each committee within the RBTC on what 2022 holds. You won’t want to miss it!
