Department of State IT Vendor Day
This event is a one-day tabletop exposition being held on-site at the Main State Department Exhibit Hall located in Washington, DC. We will have the exposition set up in the Exhibit Hall and attendees from the Bureau of Information Resource Management (IRM) and other departments will attend. 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.
