TEKFest is THE Annual Community Lead Product Showcase Event & Charity Tradeshow, which is less about selling and more about interactive engagement and educational experiences. As a Vendor Partner, you can present detailed aspects of your products through feature presentations, use case scenarios, instructional classes, and live demonstrations. This platform allows you to show off your products’ unique benefits and specific applications, helping attendees better understand the contexts in which they are most effective.


All while assisting the TKW Community as a whole with:


1) Raising funds and awareness for an annual Community/Charity Project to give one deserving organization a complete Network and Technology Upgrade at absolutely no cost to the recipient.


2) Strengthen relationships with Suppliers, TKW Members, and Manufacturers through engagement, exposure, and feedback to grow the community and better the products and services while elevating the industry. The money raised for this event will return to the TKW Community to help fund future events and the annual TeksGiving Community Projects.


3) TKW’s Community Projects have donated over 250k of time, labor, and materials to Pennsylvania and Maryland locations, including Complete Network Infrastructure, Access Control, Security, and Surveillance makeover at zero cost to the recipients. TKW hopes to continue this for years to come, and with your help and these events, the dream will stay alive for generations to come! Join us and be extraordinary!


4) This year, TEKFest is located at the Gaylord Opryland resort in Nashville, Tennessee, and will showcase 20 Vendors, TEKTalk LIVE Classes, Giveaways, hands-on learning, and so much more….


5) The best part? It’s 100% FREE to attend!
