NWA TechFest

For Developers, by Developers


The mission of NWA TechFest is to bring together the tech community to learn
from and interact with one another, as well as promote gender diversity in STEM,
economic development opportunities for corporations, and education programs for
students and teachers. Proceeds from NWA TechFest activities go to assist STEM-related
initiatives in the Northwest Arkansas community.


NWA TechFest hosts monthly social meetups on the last Wednesday at GOAT Lab Brewery in
Lowell, AR. Meetings will feature short presentations from local speakers, followed by group Q&A to gather feedback and discuss interesting happenings in the area. Ages 18+ preferred.

Yearly Conference

Dive into the forefront of technology at the NWA TechFest Conference. Experience insightful sessions, hands-on workshops, and connect with local tech firms. Our event goes beyond regular meetups, offering a dedicated day to elevate your tech knowledge and network. Curious about what’s in store? Join us in shaping the tech future!


Partner with us for event sponsorship or showcase your expertise as a speaker. Dive deeper and become a part of our dedicated non-profit team. Your feedback and event ideas are invaluable! Whether it’s a talk, a collaboration, or even a job fair, share your vision with us. Know of other tech events? Let’s amplify them together.

Current Initiatives

We are seeking local companies and organizations to partner with for both speaker talent and event sponsorship.

We are looking for people to join our non-profit organization and do some long-term event organization with us. Contact us below or join one of our relevant Mailing Lists if you want to get involved.

We are asking for community feedback through our social channels, corporate engagement, and our connections in education. If you have ideas for events we should hold (e.g. a specific talk, something centered around another non-profit, a small job fair) then please contact us and let us know what you want to see and if you’d like to get involved in organizing it. Likewise, if you know about other events that are going on then we’d love to hear about them and share them with others.


Empower the tech community by partnering with NWA TechFest. Choose to sponsor our engaging monthly meetups, our impactful annual conference, or directly contribute to our organization’s mission.
