Pacific Northwest Digital Government Summit 2015

Sep 29 - 30, 2015
Tacoma, WA


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

This Year’s Topics Include:

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