Networking Events

SHARE Pittsburgh offers several networking opportunities, including themed evening receptions and networking breaks, that connect you with fellow enterprise IT colleagues, peers and vendors from a wide array of leading companies throughout the week.

Networking is one of SHARE’s key pillars, and we are always looking for ways to encourage meaningful interactions between all of our conference attendees and partners.
