-- The 2020 Gateway to Innovation (G2I) conference has been rescheduled to September 10, 2020 after the original April date was made unworkable due to the COVID-19 pandemic. G2I is the region's largest single-day event designed for technology executives. The conference will be held at America's Center Convention Complex in downtown St. Louis.
"The G2I executive and conference committees will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and provide updates as available. We remain committed to holding the conference as long as it can be done safely for all those participating,"
said 2020 Gateway to Innovation Conference Chair Eric Gorhan, CIO at REJIS.
