Industry Summit 2014

 

Overview

 

The Center for Digital Government is pleased to present its eighth State & Local Government Industry Summit. This event is specifically designed for state and local IT companies. Among the companies attending will be top technology integrators from the state and local (SLG) markets, top VAR management, as well as top regional and ‘boutique’ SLG integrators from across the U.S.

The State and Local Government Industry Summit is a unique venue for:

  • Recognizing the private sector technology industry’s contribution to the modernization of public service;
  • Having high-value, low-ratio interactive discussions with hand-selected public sector IT leaders about the challenges and opportunities of today’s state and local market; and,
  • Exploring potential partnering relationships (with colleagues and even competitors) through a candid peer-to-peer dialogue toward a common strategic understanding of where state and local governments are going.

The Eighth Annual Best Fit Integrator Awards Dinner will recognize private sector integrators nominated by their government clients and selected by a panel of independent judges for outstanding contributions to improving the way government works. The awards are for both corporations and individuals that have dedicated themselves to government modernization and exemplify the spirit of public service.

The Summit also includes 18 holes of exercise and relationship-making to practice the art of the deal.

This event will represent tremendous opportunity for attendees to network with senior management from leading technology integration companies:

  • Find out what leading states, counties and cities are doing with IT procurement
  • Find out what trends are impacting state and local governments the most
  • Build partnerships with key industry leaders

Trivial Pursuit: Government Edition

The popular board game has been recently modified for government and industry audiences. So recently, in fact, that we are the first to play. In this session, we will have our sponsor representatives pick a card from the deck and ask the public sector audience to pick the topic of choice. The related question will be asked and the public sector audience will have 30 seconds to respond. Following the question, we will have a short Q and A on the topic.
