Kraft Kennedy University (KKU) is a daylong conference dedicated to sharing successful strategies across multiple technical disciplines. Technology and business professionals will learn from experts in their fields, who will discuss solutions to meet current and future challenges facing the industry. KKU seminars represent a culmination of knowledge gathered by leading IT professionals and are carefully reviewed by a committee of peers.

Kraft Kennedy’s core value of Continuous Learning has us always evolving, looking ahead, and searching for ways to share knowledge through events like KKU, which was born out of an annual company-wide educational conference that we’ve held for twenty years. Realizing the immense value we receive from the event, we decided that it wouldn’t be fair to keep it all to ourselves. Today we are thrilled to offer our New York City-area clients the unique opportunity to participate.

We are pleased to offer a limited number of free tickets this year in honor of the official opening of KKU to the community. Request registration now.
