STC Technical Summit 2014
18 May 2014 - 22 May 2014
Join STC from 18-21 May 2014 in sunny Phoenix, Arizona, for the 2014 Summit. Register now. The Advance Rate is now in effect through 30 April.
The Summit (#stc14) officially begins Sunday evening, 18 May, with a general session and keynote speaker. Your registration includes over 60 educational sessions, organized in tracks, which begin Monday morning, 19 May, and continue until midday on 21 May. In addition to the traditional presentations, workshops, and progressions, 20-minute Spotlight Talks have been added. You also have access to the Expo, with more than 50 companies represented; this will open on Sunday evening, 18 May, and run through 5:00 PM on Tuesday, 19 May.
Summit registration includes two receptions (Opening Reception and Communities Reception) plus morning and afternoon refreshment breaks in the exhibit hall. Also included in your registration is access to STC's SUMMIT@aClick. This unique feature is audio/graphic synchronized recordings of most sessions. SUMMIT@aClick takes away the problem of only being able to attend one session per hour. You can listen and watch the other sessions on SUMMIT@aClick after you get home.
Networking opportunities in addition to the receptions and sessions, includes the Honors Banquet and Closing Lunch. Both events require a separate ticket. In addition, most of STC's Special Interest Groups (SIGs) have networking events and meetings.
Additional education opportunities are also available on Saturday and Sunday, 17-18 May, in the form of preconference certificate sessions and preconference workshops/tutorials.
This year's keynote speaker will be Jonathon Colman of Facebook. For over 15 years, Jonathon Colman, content strategist at Facebook, has helped people and organizations build, find, and use the best stuff on the Web. Now he’s coming to the Summit!
