Days

Speakers

Sessions

EDGE22 always begins with an informal Executive Roundtable agenda that brings together government and business leaders from different jurisdictions, but who share complementary responsibilities. Roundtables are tactical discussions where practitioners share best practice case studies, discuss challenges and opportunities, and engage other attendees in the discussion as well.

The EDGE22 agenda features three sessions of three Roundtables each, 9 subjects total.  Each Roundtable runs 90 minutes, with the first 15 minutes as a meet and greet networking period allowing attendees and direct Roundtable participants to interact.

EDGE Executive Roundtables differentiate this conference, and they are the catalyst for substantive conversations that occur throughout EDGE and important relationships that last beyond.

FOR THE FIRST TIME, EDGE22 will feature Executive Roundtables on law enforcement and homeland security, and health care, as part of the plenary sessions  Attendees will participate with real-time polling and Q&A.
