About DGI

This photo tells our story.

It shows the members of a government technical community attending a typical session at the 2017 E-Discovery, Records and Information Management Conference. 

Attendees are highly engaged because it’s actually their event—designed with their input to focus solely on their interests. 

 

we support technical communities

Government technical communities are existing cross-agency coalitions of government professionals who are working to advance knowledge in specific subject matter areas. These are groups of professionals whose members know each other and collaborate to achieve common goals.

All DGI events and content center on supporting technical communities. DGI curates focused events where community members gather to share their knowledge, challenges, and successes. 

 

By communitIES, for communitIES

DGI events are developed by technical community members or under the supervision of a community advisory group. They reflect the current concerns and interests of the communities DGI supports. 

For 20 years, we’ve been delivering substantial, useful information from recognized experts and practitioners. Our role is to provide a venue, facilitate the conversation, and manage the details of staging events.

This enables community members to focus on what’s important: solving technical challenges and moving the mission forward. 

 

capture relationships & NEW OPPORTUNITIES

DGI promotes sponsors who engage with the technical communities in meaningful ways. We believe in substance over sales, that’s why we work with our sponsors to create thought leadership content and provide opportunities for them to share successes, solutions, and insights within our communities through webinars, training seminars, and conferences.

OUR history

Event programs were designed by advisory councils that included leaders in each field, to ensure the value of each topic and speaker to the audiences, to bring together government and industry in educational forums where ideas could be shared.
