TechCon has a rich, nearly 40-year history as a key educational event for anyone in public media who works in technology. Evolving with the industry, the conference brings together Broadcast, Digital, IT, Traffic and Station Management sessions and discussions for attendees. Presentations from stations, vendors, national public media organizations, academics and thought leaders from across the non-commercial and commercial sectors make TechCon a varied and powerful event for learning, brainstorming and collaboration.

Schedule for 2018:

For travel purposes...

  • Wednesday : 2:00pm - 7:00pm 
  • Thursday : 7:00am - 7:00pm 
  • Friday : 7:00am - 7:30pm

There will also be a variety of committee meetings and workshops taking place Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday afternoon. While these are outside the official conference hours, attendees may be committed to these activities. We are aware additional events are often held around TechCon, and it would be most helpful if they could be planned to occur outside of these official conference hours listed above. If you do plan to host an event, please let us know the date, time, and location so we can help provide this information at our registration desk.
