Richmond, VA


Government Technology’s passion is helping spread best practices and spurring innovation in the public sector. COVITS is designed to do just that. The summit has an advisory board that gathers public sector 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 timely topics discussed in the numerous breakout sessions to help advance the goals of their organizations and their own career paths.


This Year’s Topics Include:

  • Innovation and Leadership
  • Digital Government Trends
  • Emerging Technologies
  • Cyber Security
  • Data and Analytics
  • Mobility and Citizen Engagement
  • Cloud Services
  • Collaboration

2.The main mall (Macy’s, etc) has plenty of parking but it’s a very long walk.
