Session I:
NECINA 20TH ANNIVERSARY - ANNUAL CONFERENCE

"TECHNOLOGY AND QUALITY OF LIFE"


Tickets and Online Registration >>

Overview

We are surrounded by new technologies every single day. We hope they will make our lives simpler and yet it seems like every new gadget is making our lives more occupied. Our eyes are glued to the phones even when we are around our loved ones. We use all kinds of Apps to make us look busier, get to point B faster. Are we still doing the right things? Are we pushing the right buttons?


NECINA, as a proud professional organization, has seen its own shares of new technologies created by its own members.  Most of these technologies are making a positive and profound impact to us. 2016 is 20th birthday of NECINA. We want to use the special occasion to celebrate what we have created, and pause a moment to reflect, and start the next decade on the right foot.

On June 18 we are glad to invite a group of elite founders, entrepreneurs and friends with their visions aligned to ours. We want to have a great discussion on how to use Technology to improve our lives, to leave a long lasting impact to the community and to the world that is nurturing everybody.

After the annual conference, we will also have VIP dinner and special performances. It is another great opportunity to network with special guests and listen to their stories! Come to celebrate NECINA 20 years with us. Join our conference and also check out our VIP dinner and performance event at night.
