Los Angeles Digital Government Summit 2017

Aug 29 - 30, 2017
Los Angeles, CA


Government Technology’s passion is helping spread best practices and spurring innovation in the public sector. The Los Angeles Digital Government Summit 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.

Topics Include:

  • Securing Los Angeles
  • Moving Out of the Fog and into the Cloud
  • A Roadmap for Success: Building World Class Teams
  • The Future of Government Customer Service
  • With Great Data Comes Great Responsibility
  • Technologies That Will Change How Government Works
  • This RFP Sucks! Why Traditional RFP's Are Failing and What to do About It
  • Delivering Projects Successfully
  • Fostering a Culture of Innovation and Entrepreneurship: How Israel Embraced the Challenge of Change
  • The Internet of Things Enabling Smart Communities
  • Accessible and Inclusive Government – Meeting the Needs of Each and Every Citizen
  • Emergency Communication Tools: Lifesaving Information at Critical Moments
