What is TRX?

TRX is more a technically focused event with content being shared at an in-depth level. The TRX presentation format is intended to be flexible and conversational in its structure to permit more organic interaction throughout each presentation. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions during a presentation to gain a deeper understanding of the research underway rather than holding all questions until the conclusion of a presentation. All TRX presenters have prepared their presentations to allow for this increased level of engagement.

Who Should Attend?

Engineers, decision makers, and executives.

Members and Non-members are welcome!

Please note: Citizens of the following countries will NOT be allowed on-site: Cuba, North Korea, Libya, Syria, Iran, and Sudan. Registration from these countries will be cancelled and refunded less a $75 refund processing fee.
