AFCEA INNOVATION SHOWCASE Series Championship Webcast
May 10, 2019

AFCEA International is sponsoring a series of INNOVATION SHOWCASE events where companies can pitch their capabilities to a panel of government and nongovernment technology experts. Topics can range from artificial intelligence to digital transformation to cybersecurity to any great idea. If you've nearly perfected an innovation or business process that would revolutionize technology procurement or you've thought about starting your own business, this is your chance to get advice from experts. Participating in the INNOVATION SHOWCASE is a great way to hear from experienced entreprenuers and other business professionals as well as to gain visibility through the ongoing webcast on TV Worldwide.
