Granicus to Host 10th Annual Government Digital Communications Summit in Washington D.C. on April 13

Over 1,300 attendees from across the country are registered to attend the largest event of its kind for the public sector on Thursday, April 13, 2017 to exchange best practices in embracing digital technologies to more effectively turn government missions into realities. The free event, titled “Delivering on Digital,” will be held at the JW Marriott in Washington D.C. and is hosted by the newly-combined Granicus. In November 2016, GovDelivery and Granicus merged to become the largest cloud-based company in the government technology market.

“The digital landscape is changing the way that government and citizens interact, and at the forefront of that trend are the creative and innovative leaders who have asked the right questions,” said Mark Hynes, CEO of Granicus. “We are proud to bring these top thought leaders and experts together at this year’s event, which is dedicated to helping government learn from the best, share their unique perspectives with their peers, and create a clear path forward.”

The executive director of Deloitte’s Center for Government Innovation William D. Eggers will be this year’s keynote speaker, who will outline his re-imagination of government and will provide action steps to implement tech-savvy teams, strong leadership, and innovative practices to reduce the risk and truly transform government.
