The DCI Conference will bring together the primary regional players in the digital convergence industry for collaboration on the next steps in establishing Central Texas as the epicenter of innovation in the digital convergence economy.

Similar initiatives have proven successful, such as the one Central Florida founded in 1996, which has assisted over 2,200 high tech firms and 235,000 high tech workers expanding the economy with over $61 billion in new high tech sales. San Diego County found similar success with over 1,400 high tech firms and 160,000 high tech workers generating more than $219 billion in high tech sales.
