“These conferences have diverse audience sets in terms of seniority and job function, but the common themes that run through all of them is the focus on acquisition and program management as well as IT security,” commented Kerry Rea president, “This focus speaks to the key challenges in our government today, areas where people are looking for opportunities to collaborate on solutions. In-person conferences are ideal venues for that.”
