TAG also unveiled today “Where Georgia Leads,” interactive maps outlining Georgia’s business footprint in the state’s top technology industries.

The “Where Georgia Leads” maps and entire State of the Industry Report are available online at http://www.tagstateoftheindustry.com.

“Georgia has a larger footprint in technology than I think most people realize and it is our technology industry that is poised to lead the state’s economic recovery,” said Tino Mantella, president & CEO of TAG. “With more than 13-thousand technology companies and close to 250-thousand technologists in our state, Georgia is truly emerging as a top state in the nation for technology. We hope our State of the Industry Report and ‘Where Georgia Leads’ maps prove to be valuable resources for decision-makers as they look to expand or relocate their businesses in Georgia.”

The State of the Industry: Technology in Georgia is TAG’s annual industry report to benchmark the growth of Georgia’s technology industry against previous years and other top technology states. Primary and secondary research is conducted in collaboration with CSM Research and Internet Decisions, LLC., including TAG’s annual Technology Decision-Makers Survey which polls top executives from more than 120 state technology companies about their plans to hire, expand and invest in their Georgia operations.

The Georgia Technology Summit is TAG’s flagship event that brings together C-level executives, entrepreneurs, technology professionals and academia to celebrate and recognize Georgia’s technology community. This year’s theme, Innovation Next Generation, will address how organizations are leveraging social networking to reach buyers and how they are incorporating social media tools in the workplace.
