The Government Information Technology Executive Council (GITEC) Conference is an entity focused on fostering professional development and collaborative platforms for the Federal government, academia, and industry to address and overcome emerging technology challenges. GITEC was established in response to a June 28th, 1966, White House memorandum to provide a forum through which Senior Level Government and Industry Executives could share and collaborate in an open forum on Information Technology (IT) ideas, challenges and successes. The Advanced Technology & Academic Research Center (ATARC) and GITEC announced their merger on May 31, 2018. The Federal Government is in a perpetual state of evolution, adapting to dynamic challenges and emerging trends. In this ever-changing landscape, the need for collaboration and unity becomes increasingly crucial. By coming together, government agencies can pool resources, share expertise, and collectively navigate complex issues, ensuring a more effective and resilient response to the evolving needs of the nation.

Days until GITEC 2024








The Forum Hotel in Charlottesville offers an ideal setting for GITEC 2024, boasting versatile spaces designed for both indoor sophistication and outdoor charm. The expansive 6,000-square-foot ballroom accommodates large crowds comfortably while simultaneously ensuring everyone can partake in the stimulating perspectives shared. Additionally, the state-of-the-art rooms are well-equipped for more intimate gatherings like roundtables and smaller seminar sessions. Featuring spaces for relaxation, meetings, dining, and more, we believe this will elevate the overall experience for both attendees and speakers, solidifying GITEC 2024 as the premier conference for those aiming to excel in Federal IT.
