WTIA is partnering with Snohomish County to develop a custom conference focusing on Snohomish County’s connections to technology innovation.

This collaborative and highly interactive virtual conference brings together leaders from the public and private sectors to develop new ways to foster sustainable growth for the tech sector and the Snohomish County community – with a clear focus on exchanging ideas and taking action.

This conference encourages participants from different backgrounds to challenge traditional ways of thinking and collaborate across industry, non-profit, and government to solve problems and make meaningful impact.

Key areas of focus will be; Healthcare During COVID-19, IT in Internal Government, Rural Broadband Access, AI to Support Racial Justice, Agritech, and more. As impact and action are major outcomes of the conference, WTIA will be developing playbooks for each area designed to help Snohomish County learn and advance strategies to solve relevant and timely problems in the current environment.
