    The Government IT Sales Summit will also provide an opportunity for attendees to build relationships with potential partners and learn about new technologies that can benefit their government customers. More than 20 IT vendors, including companies such as IBM, McAfee, Brocade, and RedHat, are sponsoring the event.
    “With government budgets flat, many in our industry are concerned about how they’ll add customers and remain profitable,” said Art Richer, president and CEO of immixGroup. “We wanted to create an event that brings together the demand creators and helps them understand where their growth is going to come from, what’s going on within the government budgets and specific technology initiatives, and what the government’s key priorities are.” 
    “This event is different because it focuses on the companies that create, market, and sell technology,” said Allan Rubin, immixGroup’s vice president of marketing. “We’ll talk about how they can better serve their government customers and grow their business at the same time. They’ll meet the people and gather the information they need to accomplish both goals.”
    Registration is now open, with special Early Bird pricing available for a limited time. Sponsorship packages are also available. Details are available at www.GovITSalesSummit.com.
