Austin Technology Council and Title Sponsor AT&T Host Gateway Event

The Austin Technology Council (ATC) and title sponsor AT&T are hosting the must-attend Gateway VIT Event for Austin leaders in technology and life sciences, national investors and venture capitalists as well as fellow industry influencers. The event takes place right before the start of SXSW Interactive on Thursday, March 6, from 5 – 9 p.m. at Austin City Limits Live at The Moody Theater – featuring executive networking, member brand showcases, live entertainment from local artist and Austin Music Award nominee Emily Bell and much more.

“As the region’s global leader in technology and life sciences, ATC is the gateway into Austin’s vibrant, rising tech scene – providing that open access to the right people and resources for our leaders and decision makers to learn, grow and build successful relationships and businesses,” said Julie Huls, ATC President and CEO. “2014 is a big year for ATC and the Austin tech community, and what better way to showcase the best of what we have to offer in leadership, innovation, creativity and opportunity than at our annual event that captures it all in one place.”

Building upon the success of its inaugural event last year that had more than 900 attendees, ATC and AT&T will bring together “very important techies” (VIT) and showcase the executive expertise, global appeal and collaborative strength of the Austin tech community and ATC’s member companies at this year’s event. In addition to AT&T’s title sponsorship, Wells Fargo Private Bank will return as the presenting sponsor and Vinson & Elkins, Padgett Stratemann and Luna Data Solutions are also partner sponsors for the event.

“ATC continues to drive Austin technology and business to the forefront of the global stage, empowering the city to be a world-class destination to live and work,” said Dave Nichols, AT&T Texas State President. “AT&T is excited to be part of that movement and we look forward to celebrating this exciting time in Austin tech at the Gateway event.”

“Seeing the high-caliber growth and success of our Austin leaders, technology sector and the business community as a whole has been amazing,” said Joe Hewell, regional managing director for Wells Fargo Private Bank in Austin. “We look forward to another great event with ATC and year of increased involvement and results from our clients and the rest of the community as we continue to establish Austin as that global leader.”

The 2014 Gateway VIT Event is invite-only to investors, tech leaders, ATC members and friends to explore and learn more about the tech and business opportunities arising in Austin. For more information, visit: http://austintechnologycouncil.org/sxsw-2014/gateway_party/.
