ACQUIRE Show Extends Training Proposal Deadline

(VIENNA, VA, November 9, 2015) - 1105 Media, Inc. today announced the deadline for submitting training proposals for ACQUIRE 2016, taking place June 8-9 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., has been extended to Friday, November 20.

The Call for Government Training Courses opened to government agencies on October 7 and to private industry on October 14. ACQUIRE show management has since been overwhelmed by the number of requests from agencies for additional submission time. Extending the deadline will allow these agencies to receive necessary approval on their training submissions.

"The conference team has been overwhelmed by the number of positive responses they have received, and we want to ensure agencies have plenty of time to submit their training courses so that we can build a comprehensive program," said Anne A. Armstrong, Chief Content Officer at 1105 Media. "We want to make sure every government agency and industry subject-matter expert who offers training to the government is able to join us."

Produced by the same teams behind the FCW, GCN, Washington Technology, Defense Systems and Federal Soup media brands, the conference program will feature training courses from a diverse range of government agencies, a variety of informative breakout sessions, visionary keynotes and educational clinics on the show floor.

ACQUIRE will provide government agencies, as well as industry experts, an opportunity to engage federal and military personnel with education and training opportunities across five tracks: Acquisition Management, Information Technology, Office Management, Professional Services and Project Management.

Strategists, managers, decision makers, buyers and end users from every government department and agency from across the country will be at ACQUIRE to take advantage of mission-critical training, earn CLPs and further their professional development.

All government and military agencies and industry experts are invited to submit their training courses for consideration. There is no limit to the number of training courses you can submit. If selected, course(s) will be scheduled to take place during ACQUIRE, June 8-9, 2016, in Washington, DC.

Sponsorships and booth sales for ACQUIRE are now available, and attendee registration will open in January 2016. Please visit:
