INNOconf Fills the Tech Conference Void Left by Collision

Update: INNO is live and right around the corner!

In the three years since Collision arrived in New Orleans, it has become the fastest growing tech conference in North America. At the same time, the technology industry in New Orleans has been growing at a steady clip.

This morning, Collision announced they are moving to Toronto.

This is going to leave a void here in New Orleans.

It’s been an amazing three years working with the Web Summit team. They have proven that there is a market fit for a conference smack dab between the two weekends of Jazz Fest. We really thank Paddy and all those we’ve worked with over the years, for putting New Orleans on the map as a technology hub.

We’re picking up the reins where they’re leaving off.

There is no better time to be in New Orleans. The technology industry is facing a demand to create more innovative solutions to the world’s most urgent problems more than ever before. New Orleans is constantly producing a vibrant palette of ideas inspired by our broad cultural landscape.

So we’re going to bring you a new tech conference.

Can’t wait to see y’all at INNOconf next year. Same time, same place.
