More than 100 CEOs and other executives will present their company's latest contributions to the tech industry at  the UBS Global Technology & Services Conference during the next three days.

Considering the conditions of the economy, this year's conference, held at the Grand Hyatt in New York City, should garner even more attention than conferences of the past few years.
Notable tech names at the conference include:

Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO) - combined forces with IBM (NYSE:IBM)  to enhance the retail banking experience

Energy Conversion Devices (NASDAQ: ENER) - designs, manufactures and sells photovoltaic (PV) products, known as PV or solar laminates that generate renewable energy by converting sunlight into electricity.

Texas Instruments (NYSE:TXN) Just released a digital media processor that provides professional quality resolution on low-cost consumer products.

UBS' conference could prove to be a pivotal moment for established brands, as well as smaller companies on the rise. Think of the conference as a mid-term report for investors. Executives must deliver a promising message in an economy that's already teetering on the brink of a meltdown.
