“Cisco has been a sponsor of the MN Government IT Symposium for over 10 years. We have found this is to be the most effective event in Minnesota for reaching our public sector customers.”
“The conference is a great opportunity to get the private and public sector to work together.”
“We can create a place where vendors and the government entities that use their products can meet together and talk about them outside the procurement process and hopefully bring new solutions to bare for problems that we face.”
