Event Details

Overview

The Federal government spends between $80 and $200 billion annually on information technology (IT) assets to support mission delivery and operational activities. State and local governments spend over $40 billion annually on IT. The government’s ability to manage these assets effectively and efficiently has a direct impact on the quality of government services and programs – from social security and veterans’ health to national defense.

Join us at the Imagine Nation ELC 2019 for a “can’t miss” conference that will produce actionable outcomes to address these issues of mutual interest in an educational, exciting, entertaining, unique and informative format.

This year’s overall conference theme is, ‘Driving Impact!  Innovation through Government and Industry Collaboration’ and will include content themes focused on IT Modernization, IT Security, Health Innovations and Emerging Technologies.

  • Imagine one place and time where government and industry come together on neutral ground and stand united in the collaborative pursuit of the greater good.
  • Three days in Philadelphia will change how government and industry work together.
  • Reimagined in 2019 to feature a larger and open conference space, with a Partner Pavilion, TechKnow Showcase, and a Center Stage.

 

Introducing the Imagine Nation ELC 2019 Leadership Team

 

 

Theme:  Driving Impact! Innovation through Government and Industry Collaboration

Registration is Open!  Join us Oct 20 – 23, 2019 in Philadelphia.

This year, ELC will feature an even larger and open conference space.

  • This conference will spark the imagination, inspire bold thinking and fresh ideas, foster collaboration and dialogue, and spotlight the newest and most relevant technology

In 2018, nearly 1,100 registrants attended and 30% were from the government.  Leaders and .practitioners from government and industry came together to share ideas, solve problems and learn from one another.  Imagine Nation ELC resulted after ACT-IAC merged the best of its two premier conferences, MOC and ELC, into a single event.

Each Hub has government ‘Executive Champions’ and diverse companies all of whom are experts in their field within that Hub topic.  TechKnow is designed for discovering, learning and “aha-ing” with peers, innovators and government leaders who are focused on improving business processes and implementing modernized, integrated solutions.

Located at the entrance to entire conference, the TechKnow Showcase is where Government agencies and a select group of Industry Partners will showcase innovative technologies and platforms, related solutions and services for integration and delivery relevant to that topic-driven Innovation Hub.
