Tech Titans’ Awards Gala to Acknowledge the Elite in North Texas Know-how » Dallas Innovates

“The future’s so bright” for this year’s Tech Titans Awards.

The prestigious annual contest—an anchor event for Tech Titans, the largest technology trade association in Texas with 300-plus member companies—acknowledges outstanding DFW tech companies and individuals who have made local or industry contributions during the past year.

Tech Titans is looking to celebrate those who “impact tech for the better.” Think innovators, adopters, and executors who have impacted the technology industry in a way that influenced the greater good and gave their companies a competitive edge. Nominations are free and open to the public, but all companies must be located in the region. Applications are due by Aug. 2.

The winners will be considered the “elite in North Texas technology”—and recognized as such at the Tech Titans Awards Gala on Oct. 21. The gala is back in person (with a virtual option) at the Eisemann Center of Performing Arts following an online Roaring ’20s 2.0-themed event last year. 

“The Tech Titans Awards is a highlight for the region in tech, featuring those who are building solutions that will shape our lives in the future,” Kathy Curry, chair of the Awards Gala committee and technology manager at State Farm, said. “The theme is ‘The future’s so bright,’ to reflect optimism for the future coming out of the pandemic. Technology innovation continues to do amazing things, especially during challenging times.”
