Data, Saving lives, and…Cornhole?! 

Qlik’s Public Sector Summit is back in person on June 2nd. And we are bringing together data, analytics, Veterans, and cornhole. Yep – you read that right, cornhole!

Join us for a full day of:
  • Everything data integration & analytics for U.S. Federal, and State and Local government agencies, as well as K-12 and Higher Education, and Healthcare organizations.
  • Collaboration with VETSports.org where data and sports are saving Veteran’s lives.
  • Cornhole with the best! VETSports member, Brandon Morris, a top-ranked National cornhole champion will join us and you can toss a few against the best to raise money for VETSports!

  • VETSports will also be onsite for the day to spread the word about their organization and you will be able to meet some current volunteers and see how you can help this organization now and in the future.
New this year, we are also co-locating a ½ day stop of the QlikWorld Tour with the event. Traditional business intelligence is no longer enough.
