Presentations and interactive sessions create a unique, intimate, experience which allows for engaging conversation and connection
Respected thought leaders across multiple industries bringing their knowledge and experience to each session
The SoCal Digital Symposium (SDS) serves as an exciting hub for Southern California’s diverse group of tech entrepreneurs, scholars, visionaries, business leaders, developers, and power brokers. Every session allows engaged professionals to take part in stimulating discussions on emerging trends, share innovative ideas in solutions-oriented cross-disciplinary conversations, and learn about new and relevant strategies, technologies, and techniques. SDS is the catalyst for the next wave of innovation in the region.
SDS has put together a strong group of supporters, committee members, and event partners who together will bring together an exciting group of attendees and presenters. There will be a cross section of successful business people, tech industry entrepreneurs, thought leaders from diverse industries, and South Bay / Orange County business movers and shakers. Not only are we anticipating an interesting array of influential guests and a diverse group of attendees, but we have consciously constructed an event where sponsors and participants can discover new potential partnerships and markets.
In addition to offering influential and thought provoking speakers, robust panel discussions, interactive showcases, and relevant networking opportunities, SDS goes further than other conferences by offering unparalleled access to inspiring speakers via intimate, limited seating breakout sessions where guests will be personally briefed on the latest tech issues and trends. This format allows for plenty of questions, meaningful dialogue, active brainstorming, and direct access to thought leaders and their peers. These interactive sessions facilitate and promote progress, forge creative alliances, and encourage potential collaborative ventures.
The general session takes place in the main symposium area and runs from the start of the event until the beginning of the after-party. The general session is the hub of the event. The activity in the general sessions includes the main stage where speakers, panels and presentations occur. This general session also includes: sponsor displays, networking lounge, speaker VIP tables. The general session will have digital displays where attendees can interact with each other, track event related social media feeds and network using their smartphones/iPads. Snacks and beverages are provided in main area.
Breakout Sessions In parallel with the general session, there will be two breakout sessions, each an hour long that run throughout the event until the beginning of the after-party. The breakouts feature our guest speakers who are all successful and highly respected thought leaders in their field. The breakouts are workshops that have limited seating as they will be interactive, with plenty of opportunity for the exchange of ideas and networking among participants as well as one on one access to the guest speaker.

As the philanthropic arm of the SoCal Digital Symposium(SDS), U-TTRN activities revolve around ongoing SDS events that bring together technology professionals for discussions on emerging trends, strategies, technologies, and techniques. Related U-TTRN opportunities for youth include SDS internships, symposium event attendance, networking opportunities, and access to thought-leaders.
The SoCal Digital Symposium is not only committed to the betterment of the tech community but also to the hardworking, dedicated individuals who choose this path. To help support them, SDS intends to donate a portion (10%) of our event proceeds to the UTTRN scholarship fund. U-TTRN educational programs start in September 2014 in the South Bay region of Los Angeles. The scholarship program is scheduled to start in early 2015. We invite potential participants to inquire about upcoming opportunities here.
If you would like to help the cause today please do not hesitate to donate now. Please note that U-TTRN is in process of applying for our 501c3 so while we cannot offer you a tax write off today, tour money will be used to pay for some of the necessary supplies that our kids need tomorrow
