2017 Spring Conference Breakout Sessions

MHTA – MHTA’s Spring Conference will move to a larger venue this year at the Minneapolis Depot Renaissance with more speakers, breakouts sessions, networking and exhibit space.  We’re excited to announce a first round of speakers and will add more each week.

The conference, which attracts nearly 700 attendees, will explore the opportunities and challenges presented by digital transformation in a fast-paced world economy.  Tech leaders believe the Midwest is poised for a new wave of innovation as healthcare, education and agriculture pick up the pace of digital adoption.  What impact will the budget and immigration also have on Minnesota’s innovation economy and how is our region solving the talent shortage?

Breakout session topics, speakers and sponsors

  • Digital Transformation
    • Improve User Experience through Tech Collaboration:  Join Crux Collaborative and experts from UnitedHealth Group, Medica & Zipnosis as they demonstrate how design aligns technical and marketing teams, saves time, budget and in the end produces a more successful user centric solution
