About UTmessan              

UTmessan is one of the largest IT events in Iceland. The purpose of the UTmessa is to highlight the importance of information technology and its effects on individuals, businesses and Icelandic society alike. The goal is to see a significant increase in the number of students who choose technical disciplines in universities across the country and especially in computer science. 

The event will take place at Harpa Conference Centre and is twofold:

Friday 5th of February - a whole day conference for the IT industry and a big exhibition.
There will be many tracks at the conference; a track for top level managers and CEOs, a track for CTOs and technical managers and a track for programmers and IT professionals. Also we will give the IT award at a special ceremony at the end of the day.
Saturday 6th of February - the fair will be open on Saturday too with free enterance where all of the biggest IT companies in Iceland will take part.
The fair is open to the public and there we hope to see professionals and families alike take part. We have planned events that hopefully will generate an interest of the younger generations in the IT branch. 
The event is a joint collaboration between Ský (The Icelandic Computer Society), The University of Iceland, Reykjavik University and The Federation of Icelandic Industries.
