250 All Access Passes Available For Those Recently Laid-Off

The tech industry is undergoing significant change and US workers are finding themselves in the midst of hiring freezes or layoffs  Whilst we're saddened to see this, we still know that there is a market demanding technology talent and we want to help facilitate those connections at The AI Summit & IoT World this November.

Whether due to COVID-19 or a refocusing, there's significant movement in the tech sector. In fact, last month Crunchbase publicized that more than 41,000 workers in the U.S. tech sector have been laid off so far in 2022.

If this is something that has affected you, we want to help you reconnect and reskill. If you're #OpenToWork 250 tickets are now available for the November event for anyone who has been laid-off from a technical role in the past three months.

Usually $2,299, these All Access Passes grant you unrivalled access to the learning opportunities across the six premium stages at the event. But they also include access to more intimate workshops, the Austin After Hours parties, and a packed exhibition - there's no denying the power a strong professional network can have over your career success, and we want to help you lay the foundations for that.

“Technological change means there’s now a constant relationship between education and employment; therefore, we're making 250 All Access Passes available - free of charge - for those working in tech who have recently been laid-off. These passes allow access to exceptional learning opportunities with the full conference, and you never know who you’ll meet at one of our networking events!”

Jenalea Howell - Vice President, AI & IoT Markets explains “At this time, the tech industry - like several industries - is facing difficult staffing decisions.  From the young crypto hopefuls to established giants like Tesla and Netflix, and everything in between, the workforce is being impacted.

“And, Austin hasn't been immune to this. As our home city, both for the upcoming AI Summit & IoT World Austin event and our office, we want to provide the community with support.

“Technological change means there’s now a constant relationship between education and employment; therefore, we're making 250 All Access Passes available - free of charge - for those working in tech who have recently been laid-off. These passes allow access to exceptional learning opportunities with the full conference, and you never know who you’ll meet at one of our networking events!”
