Day 1 of SIA GovSummit 2019 will be held at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center and gather a variety of public- and private-sector professionals, including federal agency employees, military and law enforcement personnel and technology executives, to examine emerging policy trends, technology needs of the government and changes in the risk environment that shape development of products and advanced systems integration to meet evolving security challenges. Topics for discussion include:

Attendees will also enjoy top-notch networking with other government, agency and industry peers. On day 2 of GovSummit, SIA members will have the opportunity to visit congressional offices on Capitol Hill.
