We are less than two months away for TechConnect 2017, which will be on Nov. 14-17 in Georgia’s jewel, Jekyll Island! This unique location boasts gorgeous beaches and landscapes as well as some of the most beautiful historical homes in the world. We’re excited to work with NRTC and Telispire to mix in some southern splendor with a whole lot of learning and networking, and then top it all off with a pinch of fun and excitement!

Let’s Go Shrimpin’

After a full agenda of essential information and networking, you’ll get the chance to unwind at one of several “adventure activities,” including taking a ride on a real shrimp trawler and hauling in nets of shrimp and other varieties of ocean life on calm seas – no rough waters.

We’re pleased to give TechConnect 2017 participants an opportunity to climb aboard the Lady Jane, a U.S. Coast Guard certified shrimping vessel recently retired after years of loyal service to the shrimping industry. There will be a marine biologist aboard telling you about the animals and sea life. And, if you like, you can help the crew sort the catch and take pictures with all the wildlife. Each cruise will be in protected waters within the St. Simon Estuaries System, and Lady Jane provides an air-conditioned cabin, restroom, and a large open and covered deck with ample room to walk around and enjoy the view.

Adventure Activities Filling Up Fast

This is one of several awesome activities planned at TechConnect this year. Additional excursions include Golfing, a Dolphin Tour, Island Scavenger Hunt, and a beautiful Historic District Excursion.

Many activities have limited space and spots are filling up fast. For example, Inshore Fishing is already completely full and Golfing is getting close. Register today and get involved in the fun. (Excursions are planned noon to 5 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 16, and are subject to change due to participation, weather, or other factors.)

How do I Register for TechConnect?

Click Tickets after clicking Register Now. Each Affiliate can send two employees free of charge. Additional employees are welcome at a discounted rate. Spouses and other family members also can attend at a discounted rate. Your registration will get you into all of the meetings, meals, and activities – if it’s on the agenda, it’s included! (Note that you’re responsible for hotel, travel, and any meals outside the ones on the agenda.)

Speaking of Agendas

We currently have a high-level agenda ready for your review along with the Breakout Agenda. We’ll be spending some time together with NRTC’s members and Telispire’s customers, and we also have built-in some “alone time” with you to present the NeoNova-specific topics outlined in the Breakout Agenda. We realize many of you are associated with more than one company (or all three, in some cases), so you’re welcome to send multiple folks to divide and conquer.

Premier Lodging Filling Fast

We’ve negotiated an incredible rate at the beautiful Jekyll Island Westin. Currently, only a few ocean view rooms are left, so don’t wait to reserve your room. Our group rate is available until Oct. 17. Call the Westin at 888-627-8316 and let them know you’re reserving for TechConnect.

We look forward to seeing you on Jekyll Island in November!
