RenderATL, the trailblazing annual tech conference and networking mecca in Atlanta, begins next week and is pleased to announce the first-ever Atlanta Tech Week taking place from May 30 – June 4, 2023. Atlanta Tech Week, also produced by tech mogul and one of Inc.’s 30 Under 30 recipients, Justin Samuels, marks a significant milestone for the Atlanta technology scene by cultivating an entire ecosystem of innovators, entrepreneurs, and enthusiasts through unique programming and cultural community.

Atlanta Tech Week’s goal is to encourage knowledge sharing, networking, and idea exchange, creating an environment where individuals and organizations can thrive and contribute to the local tech landscape while cultivating a deep sense of Atlanta culture. While being one of the country’s fastest-growing technology hubs, Atlanta fosters a sense of diversity and inclusion that will create space for Atlanta Tech Week to truly take over through alluring events at some of the city’s most beloved venues, such as Ponce City Market, Hotel Indigo, and The Gathering Spot.

Through engaging citywide events, phenomenal Southern cuisine, captivating games, notable speakers, live music performances, and an overall sense of connectivity, Atlanta Tech Week paves the way for attendees to flourish in technological innovation and opportunity. As part of Atlanta Tech Week, RenderATL is a three-day conference breaking traditional barriers between culture and conference. Samuels has a vision that goes beyond conventional conference parameters; it’s one that encompasses Atlanta’s culture, atmosphere, and dedication to growing through technology and engineering.

Featured speakers from RenderATL will also be in Atlanta and participating in Atlanta Tech Week such as David Beitel, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of Zillow; David Barrett, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Expensify; Felecia Hatcher, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Black Ambition Project; and Daylon A. Goff, President of JET.

With several participating organizations helping to make the week possible, Atlanta Tech Week will highlight 20-25 noteworthy events such as an Electric Vehicle (EV) Car Show in partnership with Ponce City Market and Juicy Power on June 1 at 6 p.m., complete with an expert EV panel and some of the latest EV’s. Other noteworthy events include:
