You may be lucky enough to catch a large analytics conference in Salt Lake City—the state is marketing itself as Silicon Slopes and various IEEE meetings often visit the city. Or you can attend local events such as the Big Mountain Data & Dev Conference, organized by Utah Geek Events, and AIM Utah or WiDS Salt Lake City meetings. The Healthcare Analytics Summit is also based in Salt Lake City.
