MacTech Conference is a 3-day, immersive, technical conference specifically designed for Apple IT Pros, Enterprise, techs, and consultants.

“The whole idea of MacTech Conference is to allow members of the Apple community to meet and exchange ideas,” says Edward Marczak, Lead Sessions Chair and Executive Editor of MacTech Magazine. “This will be spurred on by presentations from some of the best and well-known experts in the community.”

MacTech Conference has a combination of joint sessions, two concurrent tracks, and labs/forums targeted for IT Pros, Enterprise, consultants, and techs. Sessions will focus on both desktop and mobile, as well as OS X, iOS and WatchOS.

“In addition to the awesome content, we strive to create a unique environment at MacTech Conference — one where collaboration, spending time with one’s peers, and new knowledge and connections are fostered,” said Neil Ticktin, Conference Organizer and Editor-in-Chief of MacTech Magazine. “Based on the response from our attendees, I believe we’ve exceeded our mark — year after year, after year.”

Each year, MacTech Conference gets better and better. Want to know more? Ask around in the community, or check out comments from attendees or tweets from past years. Our events have been acclaimed, right from the start.

MacTech Conference promises to have all the knowledge sharing of other events, but without the distractions of that come with companies targeting consumers. I am looking forward to seeing my fellow Apple Consultants Network members, as well as putting faces to so many other new names I’ve seen in the past year.

TestimonialPict Nathan Toups rojoroboto

As an Apple Professional, I could not imagine missing MacTech Conference. They have successfully built a conference around speakers who are amazing OS X developers and innovative IT experts. You will walk away from the conference with a head full of knowledge, inspiring ideas, new friends, and a better connection to the community in which we all rely.

TestimonialPict Mike Boylan AFP548

I’ve been fortunate enough to have been able to attend MacTech Conference every year since it’s inception, and trust me, it is not an event you’ll want to miss. MacTech Conference consistently has some of the best session content from some of the most talented speakers in the industry along with the best evening networking-building events you’ll ever experience, period.

TestimonialPict Andy Ihnatko Columnist, Chicago Sun-Times and Macworld

The best compliment I can give is that as soon as the show was over, I was already talking to the MacTech folks about coming back next year.
