Thank You To Our 2020 Pinnacle Sponsor!
The Government IT Symposium is about bringing people together – to connect with each other, find common ground and build a community of professionals engaged in making government and our communities better.
“I’ve seen a lot of great conversations happening, and a lot of amazing interactions. Because of its size, and because it grabs people from all around government, it’s just a really valuable networking opportunity.”
The Government IT Symposium will leave you feeling energized – being around like-minded people, hearing new ideas and seeing and experiencing new technologies will rejuvenate your focus, boost your morale and strengthen you commitment to your work.
“I would come back in a second. There’s a lot of energy here, and there’s so much excitement, it just charges you up for your job, and charges you up to get back to the office and try some new things.”
There is so much knowledge and experience to tap into at the Government IT Symposium. Whether it’s something you’ve been struggling with, something you’ve been curious about or something you want to know more about, you will find your answers here. Come and learn from national industry-leading experts as well as your peers next door.
“If you don’t come to these kinds of things and listen to what other people are saying, then the future is going to have a real strong resemblance to the past.”
