What is TIFCA and What do we do?

The International Future Computing Association is a network of member companies and institutions that each play a part in what are, and will be, the ultimate tools and experiences that impact our daily lives using computer technology and media.

TIFCA’s mission is to lay down the groundwork and enhance the viability of enabling what’s next.  We achieve this through influential membership meetings, stakeholder education, market-building events, special initiatives, and more.

TIFCA is comprised of three pillar groups that include the Alliance of Computing Technologists, the Immersive Technology Alliance, and the Alliance of Content Creators.  It is purposely structured this way because even though each division has its own purpose and industry space, the pillars are interrelated in that each success helps drive the other.
