Altitude Marketing, an integrated marketing agency serving technology-focused B2B companies, is pleased to once again be sponsoring Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Northeastern PA’s iXchange 2016.
The event is one of the region’s premier business and technology networking events and will take place on Tuesday, May 17, 2016 at Lehigh University’s Zoellner Arts Center.
“Twelve years ago, Ben Franklin Technology Partners was Altitude’s very first client and we’ve been great partners ever since,” said Andrew Stanten, president of Altitude. “iXchange is by far my favorite event of the year – the attendees, honorees and inspirational keynote speakers. Sponsoring the event is perfectly aligned with our focus and values.”
With more than 500 attendees in 2015, Ben Franklin’s annual iXchange event brings together venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, educators, and business and community leaders to celebrate substantial technological advancements, and the people and organizations that devote their work to enhancing the northeastern Pennsylvania economy.
This year, in addition to a networking session and the presentation of the 2016 innovation awards, iXchange will welcome Byron Reese, author of Infinite Progress, as the keynote speaker. Reese is an accomplished high-tech trailblazer, author, inventor, entrepreneur and eternal optimist who will address how to spot key technologies and identify factors that drive innovation.
