The 2014 BizTech@Wharton Conference will be held this Friday, November 7th, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Now in its 19th year, BizTech@Wharton is a premier industry conference representing the latest thinking on the business of technology.

Subjects to be featured include Bitcoin, Cloud computing, Internet of Things, and Customer Analytics, among others.

Keynotes will be presented by Ben Galbraith, Vice President, Global Products, Walmart; Dennis Hoffman, Senior Vice President, Strategic Planning and Programs, EMC Corporation; Ben Relles, Head of Comedy, YouTube Originals; and Jonathan Zabusky, President, GrubHub, Inc. The last two are Wharton grads.

In addition to the six panel discussions, there will be a Startup Pavilion featuring apps developed at Penn and a Shark Tank-like competition (QuakerTank), and you'll have a chance to meet some companies that hold informal 30 minute coffee chats.

Here are the Top 10 reasons to attend the BizTech@Wharton Conference (via BizTech@Wharton).

Tickets, which are very reasonable, are still available.

The conference is organized by Wharton students.
