2016 Presenting Sponsor
Special "Thank You" to Mountain Connect's first presenting sponsor, Westcon!
Welcome to our new Mountain Connect Website
June 5th – 7th, 2016
Keystone Resort & Conference Center
In 2016, our conference theme will be Hybrid Infrastructure Supporting Smart Cities. We must consider planning and building infrastructure that supports our governments, citizens, schools, healthcare, and tourists in all areas of our communities. Our planning should include fiber as core infrastructure but be inclusive of how wireless technologies are a natural and necessary extension of fiber infrastructure serving our communities. We will explore:
- Smart City Infrastructure
- Impact of the Internet of Everything
- Wireless/Wi-Fi Network Considerations
- “Smart” Broadband Planning
- Navigating Financing Options
As always, Mountain Connect will continue our focus on our core conference topics:
- Economic Development
- Education: Broadband 101 - Forecasting your Future! To learn more about this year's syllabus, click here Broadband 101 Syllabus
- Policy Impacting Broadband
- Broadband 101 Education for Elected Officials
We are excited to announce that we are moving Mountain Connect to the Keystone Resort & Conference Center in Keystone, CO! The Conference center is the largest meeting venue in the Colorado Rocky Mountains and a wide choice of hotel and condo accommodations around Lakeside Village. Please see our lodging page above for more detail.
Mountain Connect will feature a new addition to our conference activities: Dale Hatfield Open golf tournament. We will host this on Sunday, June 5 at the Keystone Ranch Golf Club. Proceeds from this first annual golf tournament will support the Dale Hatfield Scholars Program at Silicon Flatirons Center for Law, Technology, and Entrepreneurship at the University of Colorado. We are excited to partner and support the Silicon Flatirons mission and immeasurable contribution to our local and national community. Please click here for more details on the Program.
