OHTec launched Tech Week in 2011, with the intention to expand on the Best of Tech Awards and create additional awareness of the regional IT industry.  We've expanded the mission to support, connect, engage and celebrate the regional IT community.

As a result, we've seen incredible growth in Tech Week participation, growing 8-fold in just 5 years: 

  • 2011:  515 attendees
  • 2012:  879 attendees 
  • 2013:  1,556 attendees 
  • 2014:  1,917 attendees
  • 2015:  4,293 attendees

Community partners such as the Greater Cleveland Partnership, Crain's Cleveland Business, NEOSIM, Regional IT Engagement, Global Cleveland and others have been key to this substantial growth.
