TechXpo is an exposition of the technology and innovations created by 100 technology and manufacturing companies throughout Florida.
The event is hosted by Florida Institute of Technology, the only independent, technological university in the southeast, and will be held at the Clemente Center. This single-day event allows companies with advanced technologies and innovations to display their products and services to other companies looking for resources and suppliers.

To continue the momentum of this manufacturing celebration, Florida TechXpo will showcase hot industries, including: Aerospace, Composites, Consumer Products, Emerging Technology, Homeland Security & Defense, Health Care, Information Technology, Manufacturing, Robotics, Simulation, Telecommunications, & Transportation.
TechXpo will feature a special “Access to Capital” Luncheon (ticketed separately) which will feature a panel representing various lending resources to help you learn how to get the cash you need to grow or start your business!
