Hello from Flagstaff, Arizona!

This summer, we will be hosting our 2nd Annual Native Innovation Technology Integration Conference. We were filled to capacity last year with participants learning technology integrated solutions for business, education and healthcare. This conference is becoming a leading networking event in the Southwest.

Over two dozen hands-on workshops are on schedule and marketing vendors will fill every space. We are excited to continue partnering with Twin Arrows Navajo Casino & Resort to provide thought-provoking panels and the chance for you to meet amazing people. All of us at Native Innovation designed the conference to have something for everyone — whether you are just starting to explore these issues or are already a seasoned expert. So dive in to the sessions, soak up the speeches and performances, roll up your sleeves at a workshop, and don’t forget to save a little energy for the evening.
