PAST EVENT

Dec 6 - 7, 2012

"This is a challenging yet exciting time to be a government information technology professional. Economic challenges coupled with technology innovations provide opportunity to help meet the growing demands on government agencies. The Wisconsin Digital Government Summit brings together people from all levels of government for a unique opportunity to work collaboratively, exchange ideas and showcase successes. The Summit is the foremost event for government IT and for the vendor community. Join me and many other leaders from state and local government in Wisconsin to learn, network, discover products and solutions and highlight the best of what we do and what we may yet still achieve."

- Paul Kronberger, Chief Information Officer, City of Madison
