Interesting, thought provoking sessions from amazing speakers coming from around the world to share their knowledge. And, there’s activities to give you time with your peers, and meet new people. Finally, you’ll have direct interaction with the most useful vendors, allowing you to build a relationship with that special “inside” contact.

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. 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 macOS, iOS, tvOS 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. 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.
