Activate Conference a conference for all things interactive

Activate is an event that aims to enrich our local tech community by establishing and furthering the careers of individuals in the web & technology field. 

Our goal is to bring awareness of this field to the young community and build bridges between the future and current workforce in order to increase interest in careers in technology. We also invite current professionals to participate in furthering their skills to build a stronger workforce.

Last Year, Our Inaugural conference attendance was 139 students and professionals. While our event was aimed at the student audience, we received a lot of interest for an event for the professional audience as well. This year we will be expanding the Activate conference from one day to 3 and introducing programs that both students and professionals can attend and learn together. Join us.
