June 7, 2021 – TribalHub, the producers of the Annual TribalNet Conference and Tradeshow is pleased to announce the return to in-person format for the 22nd Annual TribalNet Conference and Tradeshow, happening Nov 8-11, 2021. The event, expected to draw in over 500 technology minded professionals and executive leaders from tribal organizations and enterprises as well as over 150 exhibiting product/solution providers, will be held at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas.
Since its first event in 1999, the goal of the annual gathering has been, and continues to be, bringing technology and tribes together. It is one of the only events truly dedicated to the technology space for Native American government, gaming and health informatics. The agenda is developed by the TribalNet Advisory Boards who meet year-round to bring together topics that are relevant and timely. These Board Members are an accurate representation of the event attendees, i.e., decision makers working in Tribal Gaming, Tribal Government and Tribal Healthcare, with titles such as CIO, VP of IT, IT Director, IT Manager, Network Administrator, Security Administrator, Systems Administrator, Tribal Council, GM, CEO, CFO and other leaders who come from tribes all across the US. The week-long event also includes plenty of networking opportunities, including a two-day tradeshow designed to build valuable and profitable connections with both peers and technology solution providers.
Shannon Bouschor, Director of Operations for TribalHub comments on the return to in-person, “In the last year we have hosted over sixty webinars online, offered eight virtual regional events, plus held our large annual conference and tradeshow fully virtual. While TribalHub continued to bring the industry together this last year, we, along with our members, attendees and sponsors have been missing those serendipitous occasions where great things just ‘happen’ when different people, minds and personalities get together, all in the same space physically. I can’t tell you how pleased we are to be working hard on planning a valuable, informative, action packed, safe, fun and memorable 22nd Annual TribalNet Conference and Tradeshow. We’ve even selected our MC for this year’s event, Dr. James Stallcup ("aka Jimmy Joe Coltrane") Enterprise CMIO and Medical Director at Cherokee Nation. Not only has he been a HUGE part of Cherokee Nation’s telehealth program and response to Covid-19, but he is also an insanely funny and talented guy who is going to truly elevate the in-person experience for our attendees this year. One of his recent videos he did for us states, ‘TribalNet 2021 is in person and you know why? Because the VIBES ARE BACK.’ I couldn’t say it any better than that.”
The week will offer a robust event schedule, including six unique session tracks, two keynote presentations, a two-day tradeshow and plenty of opportunities to connect. TribalHub members will have an exclusive VIP experience. Attendees are already registering, some sponsorships are already booked, the Tribal-ISAC group has been named the sponsor of the Security Track and so much more is already developing! The annual conference and tradeshow is sure to deliver quality and value to all in attendance. Those interested in more information or registering to attend should visit tribalnetconference.com
