Known historically for its reign as the entertainment capital of the world, Los Angeles is quickly gaining ground as one of the most rapidly growing technology ecosystems in the country. In an effort to further unite and celebrate the diverse Los Angeles technology community – often referred to as “Silicon Beach” – the first annual LA Tech Summit will be held on Thursday, November 14, 2013 at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica, Calif. This one-day event will bring together some of the industry’s leading executives, entrepreneurs and professionals to share insights on what it takes to build a successful technology company in Los Angeles.
