KCADC Embraces Kansas City Speed: FastKC Annual Meeting
Kansas City isn't just growing--it's growing fast.
How fast? For one, Kansas City's Internet speed is soon to be the fastest in the world. With the implementation of the Google Fiber network on KCK and KCMO's fertile soil, businesses will begin to run at the speed of light. Because of the Google Fiber initiative that has taken a hold of Kansas City, our city has been forever changed. Many Kansas City organizations, such as the KCADC, have embraced the lightning-speed network, and in turn, KC has been recognized by a number of big media names; from the Wall Street Journal to Forbes.
But the KCADC is asking one important question: is Kansas City learning as fast as the world is changing? And that question will be answered at an upcoming KCADC event. It's appropriately named FastKC: The KCADC Annual Meeting 2011.
At the event, the KCADC is inviting movers-and-shakers from the Kansas City area to listen to how light-speed advancements in global commerce will affect business. The event will look at radical ideas and offer practical advice that will help anyone get a jump on the competition.
So who's all making it out for the KCADC Annual Meeting? Join keynote speaker Bill Taylor (co-founder of Fast Company and author of Practically Rad) along with the Honorable Sly James, the Honorable Joe Reardon and major Kansas City businesses (such as Sprint, Garmin, Hallmark, the Kauffman Foundation, Lockton and others) to see what the fast buzz is all about. FastKC will take place on Friday, November 4th at the Kansas City Convention Center's Grand Ballroom.
Act fast (just like our future internet)! Sponsorship availability will end on Wednesday. If you or your company wants to get involved, be sure to check out the Sponsorship page.
Interested in attending? Entrepreneurs, investors, technology enthusiasts, business owners and the like can register at the KCADC site for an individual seat and the chance to get in front of Kansas City's most prominent and influential people.
