A Message from the Western Maryland IT Center of Excellence

2020: 5th Annual Conference

After much contemplation, we decided to cancel this year’s Tech at the Gap conference, initially scheduled for October 15, 2020. For a variety of reasons, we decided that it was in everyone's best interest to cancel this year, but we look forward to seeing everyone in 2021.

Each year, many individuals work hard to plan our annual technology conference with topical presentations from highly qualified presenters. We would not want to diminish the event in any way or put our attendees and speakers at risk by planning a large gathering when so much is uncertain.

Please subscribe to our email list below for occasional updates and news about next year's conference.

Thank you.
Western Maryland IT Center of Excellence

Tech at the Gap is funded in part by the State of Maryland’s EARN Maryland Grant Program, administered by the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation. EARN Maryland focuses on industry-led partnerships to bridge Maryland's skills gap and drive growth.

Stay and Play




October is an ideal time to visit Western Maryland. In fact, people come from far distances every year just to enjoy the beauty of the changing seasons and spend some relaxing time in the mountains.

From outdoor recreation to art events to history and heritage, there is plenty to see and do. Hopefully you can spend a few extra days enjoying the area.
