Attendee / Exhibitor



Join your coworkers, peers as well as a variety of subject matter experts from across the state to learn more about the direction our state is heading with Information Technology contracting and how these strategies are expected to influence procurements; ultimately impacting Purchasing professionals across government and public sectors. All are encouraged to attend the upcoming DIR Connect Technology Expo currently planned for 2018! Mark your calendars now and watch for the Exhibitor / Attendee Online Registrations to open separately, the Palmer Events Center in Austin, Texas, on Wednesday, April 4th, 2018.

This educational conference is open to all government and public employees, at NO COST to the agency, although pre-registration is required.

Take advantage of the IT industry experts presenting and plan to attend while learning about the technology products, services and solutions available through the Cooperative Contracts program.

Don't miss this terrific opportunity to network with other agency IT representatives and purchasing professionals.


This recurring Expo provides an opportunity for 150+ contracted IT vendors to connect directly with hundreds of public-sector and government attendees.


DIR will award continuing education credit and provide certificates of attendance.
