Linz connects
IT & Economy 

Our networking format for the Linz economy and IT sector: we invite C-level management from Linz companies to discuss current IT topics. Each time there is professional input from two experts and then relaxed discussions, each time in a different exciting location in Linz - completely open, while maintaining confidentiality. A community that wants to make a difference and exchange ideas about current topics, trends and problems and network again and again.

Information on the Linz connects events (topic, location, time) will be provided promptly by personal invitation!

If you have any questions or are interested in participating, please send an e-mail to innovation@mag.linz.at.
