2012 marked the Congressional Internet Caucus Advisory Committee (ICAC)'s 15th Annual Kickoff Reception & Technology Exhibition. This event is the largest technology exhibition on Capitol Hill and kicks off the Congressional session each year - it followed the 2012 State of the Net Conference.
Designed to demonstrate emerging Internet technologies, the exhibition provides Members of Congress and their staff the opportunity to test drive the technologies that are changing our lives and influencing Internet and technology policy in Washington. The Kickoff Exhibition is also one of the largest policy networking events on Capitol Hill bringing together Congressional staff, Administration officials, industry executives and public interest advocates. The goal of this annual tech exhibition is to bring cutting-edge technology demonstrations to Capitol Hill that illustrate the power and flexibility of the Internet as medium for communications, commerce, and democracy. The event annually draws over 600 attendees including lawmakers and staff, reporters, and representatives from the government agencies and private sector organizations.
