Triangle-based Tech Media is relaunching the Southeast Venture Conference in June under a new name (Fusion) and with a new format. But startups and venture capital will still be a highlight.

Long a staple of the southeast tech scene which moves annually to different venues, the SEVC event has been a big draw with a two-day program that is packed with high-profile speakers as well as presentations for startups and emerging entrepreneurial companies.

Fusion will be a bit different, Tech Media promises.

A new point of emphasis will be “trends in the digital ecosystem,” according to an email update.

“We’ve taken the best historical pieces from the conference – a great audience profile, awesome growth-stage companies and a tremendous network of investors – and re-launched as the Fusion Conference,” Tech Media says.

“Fusion will take over where SEVC left off while incorporating more on digital trends and a focus on Software, MarTech, Ecommerce, New Media, Mobile, Cloud and Data.”

The event is set for June 7-8 in Washington, D.C.

Promised highlights include:

  • “Top growth-stage presenting companies representing the future of the digital economy
  • “Venture & Startup market-relevant panel discussions on trends, strategies and the macro-environment
  • “New this year – Sessions on trends in the digital ecosystem. What technologies are helping companies scale faster? What’s driving advanced acquisition & conversion?
  • “A phenomenal networking environment and hallway track to connect with entrepreneurs & investors”
