Ohio Digital Government Summit 2019

Oct 10 - 11, 2019
Columbus, OH


Government Technology's passion is helping spread best practices and spurring innovation in the public sector. The Ohio Digital Government Summit is designed to do just that. The summit has an advisory board that gathers public sector and private sector leaders to create an agenda that is relevant and actionable to the state and local government organizations attending the summit. Participants tell us they use the inspirational keynotes, leadership discussions, networking breaks, and timely topics discussed in the numerous breakout sessions to help advance the goals of their organizations and their own career paths

Topics Include:

  • Data Revolution
  • Transforming the Government Experience
  • Cyberthreat Landscape
  • Public Records in a Mobile World
  • Maximizing Data Value
  • Navigating the Cloud
  • 5G – What Will It Mean?
  • AI and Government

A message from our Keynote Speaker

These are exciting times for Ohio. Our focus on innovation, collaboration and engagement is paying dividends and we are poised to do great things. The timing of this year’s Ohio Digital Government Summit is perfect. So let’s make it memorable. Bring your challenges, ideas, curiosity, energy and be prepared to have some fun!

– Ervan Rodgers II, Chief Information Officer, State of Ohio
