MACo’s 2017 Summer Conference will focus on counties as employers and as employer magnets, drivers of the economy. As always, the conference will feature 4 days of educational sessions along with meetings, briefings, and a 2-day tradeshow of 220+ exhibiting companies. View the registration brochure.
To add to the learning opportunities, MACo is planning a Tech Expo for Wednesday, August 16. Partnering with the Maryland Tech Council, MACo is proud to bring our attendees two Deep Dive sessions focusing on Biotech and Virtual Reality. Participants will learn what’s next for county governments on the technology frontier. The sessions will be very in-depth and interactive.
Technology vendors will be highlighted through a special 50-booth one-day table-top exhibit show on Wednesday. Vendors will participate in a fast-paced IGNITE! Switch Pitch session where county officials will have the opportunity to name a technology need or challenge and have the vendors respond with possible solutions they can provide.
More information will be available soon, but the Deep Dive sessions are developing quickly:
BIOTECH BAIT: Can Maryland Net a Boom in Biotechnology?
Maryland counties have a big stake in a potential boom of the biotechnology industry – if Maryland lands it. What is the county role in making Maryland an international hub for biotech? In this session, industry leaders share what they are looking for when they scope new locations, and what they need to grow in the land of crabs and corn.

Headsets On: Get Ready for Virtual Reality and the Social Shake-Up
Virtual reality is one of the hottest and most mysterious types of tech. Virtual reality’s tempting serum, poured over snowballing social media use, could turn the way that government interfaces with the public into one heck of a snow cone. VR applications for county governments already include tourism, economic development, and information science, with more to come. Join this session to hear more about the opportunities presented by virtual reality and its integration with county services.
