PGA Tour Frys.com Open Hosting Tech Summit At CordeValle Golf Club
Published October 6, 2011
The Tech Summit, starting today, will feature a trio of speakers from Google to cover search, analytics, advertising, social and enterprise-related efforts. Three sessions will be led by Matt Ackley, head of marketing for media & platforms; Brett Crosby, head of product marketing for Google+; and Amit Sing, head of Google enterprise. More sessions will be held Friday and Saturday, and they will typically last through the morning, which allows participants time in the afternoon to take in some golf. A skybox on the 17th hole has been reserved for summit attendees.
About 200 execs from the tech industry are expected to attend, said Tournament Dir Ian Knight. “We wanted to give them anywhere from four to six hours to discuss business in a relaxed setting and use it as a networking event,” Knight said.
