With more than 100 speakers and about a dozen events, contests, expos and parties, next month’s eMerge Americas Techweek will bring together executives and entrepreneurs from large technology companies and emerging ventures throughout South Florida and Latin America. Together with leaders from Miami’s key industries, such as healthcare and entertainment, they will explore technological advances and trends and shine a spotlight on the region’s emerging tech community.

eMerge Americas Techweek, May 2-7, will be the inaugural conference produced by the Technology Foundation of the Americas, an organization founded by tech entrepreneur and Terremark founder Manny Medina. It’s not just a conference, it’s the kickoff of a movement, said Diane Sanchez, CEO of the Technology Foundation of the Americas.

“The foundation’s objective is to ignite a vision of Miami as the technology hub of the Americas. We will do this by leveraging the unique features of the Miami region to build a new model for technology centers and be the catalyst that combines the South Florida technology community of today with Miami’s Latin American connections and cultural assets to achieve that vision,” she said.
