"The 15th Annual Illinois Digital Government Summit will enable public sector IT leaders to engage colleagues, thought leaders and top vendors. Governments at the state and local levels increasingly depend upon Information Technology to operate with greater efficiency while delivering a high level of service. As a result, forums such as this are essential. I hope you can join us."

- Sean Vinck, Chief Information Officer, State of Illinois

Illinois Digital Government Summit 2014

To view speaker presentations where available, see Agenda page.


Government Technology’s passion is helping spread best practices and spurring innovation in the public sector. The Illinois 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.

If you influence or participate in technology decisions or implementations at any level, you will want to attend.  Don't miss this opportunity to see the latest in digital government solutions, keep abreast of current policy issues, and network with key government executives, technologists and industry specialists.
