This event is sold out and we will not be able to accommodate walk-in registrations. 

For all registered participants:  An email was sent with information for “Know Before You Go….” – but we know Spam Filters are funny, and sometimes people do not get emails….so I have posted that at the bottom of this page!


Get ready for the event of the Fall in Austin for C-Suite Executives.  November 6, 2023 is the Austin Technology Council CEO / C-SUITE Summit. We will bring together 150 visionary leaders from Austin’s tech ecosystem to network, learn, and have roundtable conversations about the issues facing the future of Austin.

At the 2022 Summit we introduced the roundtable conversations, and the feedback was over the top that we need MORE conversations between the people who are shaping the future of our community.

This event is not for everyone, and has limited attendance for C-Suite leaders and our sponsors.  (for larger companies not based in Austin, but with a presence in our community, whomever are the leaders of the office are encouraged to attend).


The Austin Technology Council CEO / C-Suite Summit will bring together 150 visionary leaders from Austin’s tech ecosystem to network, learn, and have roundtable conversations about the issues facing the future of Austin.
