A Note About FOSE

If you have not already heard, we bring you the sad word that the 37-year run of the FOSE Government Technology Conference & Expo has ended, and will not return for 2015. The loss of the most important technology show for Government leaves a large hole in the pipeline between you and the education, development, new technology innovations, and networking that you came to expect when you attended FOSE.

As a 15-year attendee and exhibitor at FOSE ourselves, we are disappointed by this loss as much as you are. Whether you attended yourself personally, or others in your organization frequented the show, you know how important being on the floor of FOSE was for the Government technology community.

That's why we decided we were not going to sit around and wait for the next important event to present itself... we'd create the next important event ourselves.

We very much want to give you the forum for the one-on-one education, technology advancements, and critical industry networking you won't have at FOSE anymore. If you were a regular FOSE attendee, register for this event now. The DC Live Conference is not associated with FOSE nor 1105 Media.
