IT Symposium

EFM Events has been creating, connecting, and educating IT executives across the country since 2001. Their symposiums and summits are created around the idea of “educating the next generation of IT leaders”. Their speakers and topics are delivered by industry-leading professionals in your local area, along with national experts with broader perspectives. EFM events provide value at all levels – from education, networking and solution discovery.

EFM’s regional symposium model saves you money, time and gas. Most IT leaders can’t spare the extra time away from the office or the budget to attend large trade shows. EFM’s symposiums and summits are in your local communities, and are priced affordably so all can attend – making this the best “bang for your buck”.
