Join Us for our Inaugural Summit

Please join us Friday, February 22, 2019, for the inaugural NM Big Data and Analytics Summit in beautiful Albuquerque, NM.  The field of Data and Analytics is growing rapidly, and this conference seeks to bring together entrepreneurs, data scientists, investors and students of all knowledge levels to learn more.

Our goal is to provide a venue for this diverse group unified by a common interest in applying data models to exchange ideas, stimulate their projects and broaden their understanding of the activity and resources available here in New Mexico.

This conference will be the day after the ABQid Ski Lift Pitch Competition . We encourage attendees, especially those from out of state, to also check out that event and enjoy a day on the slopes. New Mexico’s ski areas are experiencing a fantastic snowfall this season.
