Only a few days remain to register for the Utah Technology Council's Hall of Fame Celebration.
Marc Benioff, chairman and CEO of Salesforce.com will keynote the event, and A. Scott Anderson, Alan E. Hall and Kirk M. Ririe will be inducted into the UTC Hall of Fame. These outstanding Utah luminaries will be honored on Nov. 7 at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City.
Registration for the event is available at UTC's Website. The black-tie invited event starts with a 6 p.m. networking reception followed by a dinner and program at 7 p.m.
Marc Benioff is the leader of one of the most-talked-about companies in computer science. Forbes has named Salesforce.com the World’s Most Innovative Company four years in a row and Bloomberg’s number two Top Performing Company.
"It's a huge honor to have the CEO at the helm of the most admired company in the computer software industry speak to Utah technology executives," said Richard R. Nelson, president and CEO of UTC. "He’s an extremely dynamic presenter, and we’ll get to hear firsthand the insights behind the stellar success of Salesforce."
