The 2018 Little Rock Tech Fest Conference is the 6th year being hosted in Central Arkansas. This year’s conference will be on Oct 4th and 5th at the Little Rock StateHouse Convention Center.

We are primarily looking for 30-40 minutes sessions (with 10 minute Q&A afterwards) . We will be running 3 tracks at one time throughout both days. We are also looking at providing longer workshop sessions (1 to 1.5 hour) for more in-depth coverage of topics.
