A twist on prior “speed networking” sessions, the Summit will offer one-on-one “FedNet” and “BizNet” (meet and greet) sessions in a “Government Lounge” area of the Exhibit Hall (see exhibitor layout for location).  During these sessions, company representatives will have the opportunity to meet with and present information about their companies to military and federal officials in an informal atmosphere.  The Meet and Greet sessions will also provide company representatives the opportunity to ask military and federal officials additional questions that were not discussed during their respective program sessions, which normally immediately precede the Meet and Greets.
