This year’s Securing Federal Identity event will be held at the Almas Temple in Washington, DC, a venue offered by the Hamilton Crowne Plaza hotel. The venue is an historic site and the meeting space is an architectural jewel. The layout for the event is also unique in that the conference seating will fill the center of the lower level, with some of the exhibit tables placed around the outer edges as well as on the 2nd floor balcony overlooking the conference stage via a large atrium-like setting. This unique layout means that exhibit tables are in the “quiet zone” during the presentations to minimize potential distractions. Noise levels will be strictly enforced so as not to interfere with the conference speakers.  Adequate time will be allotted to enable delegates to visit the exhibitor tables during breaks, at meal times, and at the end-of-day reception on Tuesday.
