Join the Special Titanic Presentation on Wednesday April 14, Presented By The Tech Juggernaut

This Wednesday, April 14, 2021, marks 109 years since the legendary RMS Titanic sank after colliding with an iceberg in the North Atlantic. At that time, Titanic was the largest and most luxurious ship in the world. when she went down, she took with her over 1500 people, from the wealthiest and most illustrious of entrepreneurs, to the humblest of immigrants. The disaster would also prove to have a much farther-reaching impact, shattering the confidence of a generation, and effectively ending mankind’s assurance of anything.

Now more than 100 years later, the titanic disaster continues to hold captive an entirely new generation of people. One such Person is Matt Vollbrecht of The Tech Juggernaut. In 2012 he published a book on the subject, and this year that book is being rereleased, with new findings, color photos, passenger lists, and much more. To celebrate the release of the book, and to commemorate the titanic disaster and pay tribute to all those lives that were forever changed that fateful night, Matt is holding a panel discussion about the titanic. This special presentation will take place on Wednesday, April 14, 2021 from 7:30PM to 9:30PM Eastern Time. Come with your questions about the Titanic, about writing books, and more, or come with something to contribute about the Titanic disaster. Either way, get ready to be transported back in time, through vivid descriptions, stimulating discussion, and even music that would have been played a board the great ship. Find out the answers to common questions about the titanic, such as, was titanic really considered unsinkable, why were third class passengers not allowed to go up to the lifeboats until it was too late, Woodmore lifeboats have saved more people, what really caused the disaster, and other fascinating questions like, what did titanic‘s passengers eat, what sort of luxuries did the ship offer, and much more. Finally, find out whether a similar disaster could ever happen today. So brew a cup of tea and join us for this powerful discussion and Q&A session, this Wednesday at 7:30PM Eastern.

.If you wish to attend, please send an email to:

In the subject field, please write, “Titanic Presentation”. In the Message Body, please include your name, a good contact phone number (iPhone/Mobile is preferred if possible), and your email address, making sure to spell your email address correctly and enter your phone number accurately. Please also indicate whether you wish to attend as an audience member or a panelist.

Audience members will be given plenty of chances to ask questions, so come prepared to ask away, and don’t worry if you’re not a panelist. We still want to hear from you. Panelists however are those with something to contribute to the discussion. Perhaps you have done extensive Titanic research, have met or are related to a Titanic passenger or crew member, or have another meaningful anecdote about the Titanic to share with the audience.

Please do not share details about your potential contribution in the email. Instead, if you indicate in the email that you wish to be a panelist, rather than an audience member, someone will contact you prior to Wednesday’s event for a short interview with you about what you wish to contribute. As time is limited and we are anticipating a large turnout, not everyone who requests to be a panelist will be granted the opportunity to do so. It is at the sole discretion of TTJ to permit or deny panelist privileges to those who request them. Many factors will go into this discussion, including but not limited to, relevance of the contribution, tone of the contribution, authenticity of information shared, length of time needed, and the overall fit of the potential contribution with the nature of the rest of the presentation. TTJ will have final say over all panelists, and we further reserve the right to exclude any panelist, even at the last minute, even after giving prior approval, for reasons such as lack of time and more.

To all those who request panelist privileges and do not receive them, you will still be invited to join us as an official audience member, able to ask questions and generally enjoy the presentation and discussion.

Once again, this event will take place on Wednesday, April 14 at 7:30PM Eastern Time, 6:30PM Central. To attend, please email us as soon as possible at:
