What's New at TechKnowledge 2019?

New at TechKnowledge 2019 is the Hub. Located at the center of the EXPO, the Hub is a multipurpose space for attendees to relax, network, learn, and experiment with new technology.

With three unique areas and refreshments, the Hub will be a go-to destination for TK attendees. The Hub’s three areas are:

1. Tech Showcase
2. Speed Sessions
3. Networking Lounge.

    Certification: Your Ticket to Success
    Looking for a way to give your career a boost? Earning a credential can help solidify your work experience and knowledge into one package that defines who you are as a professional and where you want to go.

    As Elaine Biech, talent development professional and noted author, has said, “Certification is your ticket to success. It validates your competence, enhances your professional image, and opens doors you never thought possible.” Choosing the right credential is as important as choosing the field of study to match your talents and interests.

    Join us for this session, where we will discuss the various paths of credentialing and help you to sort out which one might be right for you.

    During this session, you will learn about:
    • the importance of having a primary career goal
    • the difference between certifications and credentials
    • pros and cons of pursuing a university degree versus an industry credential
    • best ways to evaluate your options.
