PORTLAND, Maine – April 5, 2023 – Maine’s largest and longest-running technology event is back, bringing together the state’s brightest tech minds to learn, collaborate and continue their innovative work.

“Our annual summit brings professionals in IT, cybersecurity, software development and more together with regional business leaders to learn from each other’s expertise and experiences,” said Tonia Dupler, MTUG board president. “MTUG’s work wouldn’t be possible without the support of companies, like Consolidated Communications, who have worked with us for more than a decade.”

MTUG’s events and summit are the primary funding channel for all MTUG’s programming. Thanks to committed sponsors like Consolidated Communications, MTUG provides free monthly educational meetings and networking events from August through May each year, along with a host of online collaboration platforms and a technology-centered job board to connect professionals with the businesses looking for their skillsets.

The 2023 MTUG Information Technology Summit offers more than a dozen educational workshops, with topics hand-picked by MTUG board members to address concerns and interests of IT professionals across multiple business sectors and industries. The event also features a variety of networking opportunities and a dynamic tradeshow with vendors who are invested in Maine and northern New England.

“Like most businesses, Consolidated relies on technology professionals to fulfill our mission of delivering technology that enriches how people live and work,” said Sarah Davis, vice president of government affairs at Consolidated. “We’ve been a longtime supporter of MTUG because we believe their effort to educate and connect IT professionals is crucial to Maine’s long-term economic success. This year is especially exciting, as Consolidated and the state of Maine work to continue building the fiber internet infrastructure that will serve our communities for decades to come.”
