"The Bay Area Digital Government Summit is a unique opportunity for you to exchange the freshest insights and share best practices with peers and industry leaders.  Whether it’s Open Data or Cloud initiatives; CIO’s need to evolve their IT organizations to ensure their jurisdictions use technology to engage with residents and to foster a culture of innovation.  I encourage you to attend and collaborate with us, as we continue to transform technology in government."

- Bryan Sastokas, Chief Information Officer, City of Oakland

Government Technology’s passion is helping spread best practices and spurring innovation in the public sector. The Bay Area Digital Government Summit is designed to do just that. The summit has an advisory board that gathers public- and private-sector leaders to create an agenda designed to make that passion relevant and actionable to the state and local government organizations attending the summit. Participants tell us they use the inspirational keynotes, leadership discussions, networking breaks, and the timely topics discussed in the numerous breakout sessions to help advance the goals of their organizations.
