Sloss Tech is back.

TechBirmingham and Telegraph Creative announced this week the return of Sloss Tech, the Southeast’s premier tech conference, to downtown Birmingham on June 9th. 

The historic Lyric Theatre will serve as the conference hub, with satellite events and breakout sessions taking place at other locations around town, including the Sidewalk Film Center and Cinema.

Pent-up Demand in Birmingham tech community

After four previous sold-out events, the COVID-19 pandemic put a halt to the popular gathering of the leaders and newcomers in tech. After three years, you can imagine the pent-up demand  from the Birmingham tech community to learn from industry leaders and entrepreneurs the latest innovations and developments in tech.. 

Past Sloss Tech conferences have attracted attendees from at least 47 states, and the event has generated tens of millions of online impressions as speakers, panelists and attendees alike chronicled their experiences through their social media pages.

“There isn’t a week that goes by where someone doesn’t ask when we’re bringing back Sloss Tech,” described TechBirmingham CEO Deontée Gordon about the importance of the conference.

“There has been so much growth in Birmingham’s entrepreneurial and tech communities over the last few years. Now it’s time to take it to another level. This year’s Sloss Tech is going to be a reflection of how far we’ve come and set the stage for where we’re going.” 

Birmingham is “All In”

The year’s Sloss Tech has already garnered enthusiastic support from the City of Birmingham and a number of the community’s most prominent and respected businesses and business non-profits including:

“Nothing transforms communities like better jobs and new opportunities,” said Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin. “Sloss Tech helps us tell the true story of Birmingham – both locally and around the country – that something special is happening here, and you’ve got to come experience it for yourself.”
