A whirlwind of activity driven by sequestration, budget battles, lowest-price contract requirements and a litany of political and economic issues is upending business models for government integrators," said Robert C. DeMarzo, Senior Vice President of Strategic Content, UBM Tech Channel. "This is also a period of incredible opportunity as government IT leaders are looking to innovate and evolve more than ever. XChange Public Sector provides the insight needed to help today's public sector IT channel executives become high-performance innovators through peer exchanges, vendor connections and expert points of view."
The event will conclude with the annual XChange XCellence Awards luncheon which highlights the vendors who were Best in Show.
