For 37 years, FOSE served as the nation’s premier government technology event. The show had a long and valuable legacy as a resource for government IT professionals seeking tools and best practices to equip their agency for the 21st century.

While we close this chapter in FOSE history, we are excited to launch our new Conference & EXPO, ACQUIRE. So it’s time to say:

Goodbye FOSE...
