This event is a one-day IT Vendor Day and attendees from the Bureau of Information Resource Management (IRM) and other departments will participate.
Why You Should Participate:
This audience is difficult to reach and the ongoing concept is to provide a forum where State Department personnel can evaluate new technologies, as well as company capabilities within an organized exposition. Employees will be encouraged to meet with industry exhibitors throughout the day to learn about their products and services and to exchange ideas.
The vendor space is limited and normally fills up quickly, so contact your FBC representative as soon as possible to secure your space.
