New this year is the Tech Arcade, an exhibit area open to event attendees that will feature hands-on demonstrations of government agencies' most innovative and leading-edge technologies – from robots to interactive visualizations to augmented and virtual reality.

"Our Tech Arcade offers a chance to see some of those innovations in person, and interact with them in a hands-on way."
