Jacksonville’s Tech Coast Conference set for Wednesday, organizers hope to recapture energy from 2016 event


Organizers of the fourth annual Tech Coast Conference slated for Wednesday in Jacksonville hope to recapture some of the energy of last year’s event that by their own admission was bigger and better than they had anticipated.

The event gets underway at 8 a.m. Wednesday and runs until 6 p.m. at the Prime Osborn Convention Center and seeks to bring technology companies and workers together in an overarching goal of enhancing the tech industry and ecosystem in Jacksonville. Each year, the event has drawn more participants than the previous year.
