Annual Calendar of Activities

Four distinct programs comprise the GBEF annual calendar:

EDGESeries, EDGE@CES, EDGE: Security Summit, and GBEF Special Events.

EDGESeries programs are featured and expanded at EDGE@CES.  Each focuses on a vital government or critical infrastructure mission and the technologies that drive it.  In-person attendance for GBEF Executive Committee members, select invited guests.  Programs are broadcast live to a virtual audience that is global in its reach.

EDGE@CES widely regarded as government technology’s premier annual summit and global stage, the agenda brings together senior government and technology professionals from the United States and US/NATO partner nations. 

Highly interactive agenda combining off-the-record and informal discussions with a plenary agenda recognized for its recognized speaker lineup, provocative content and state-of-the-art production.  Attendance is open to all GBEF Executive Committee members – business and government.  Registration invitations also are guaranteed for Associate members.  Attendance is otherwise by invitation.  EDGE@CES is held each January in Las Vegas during and in partnership with the world’s most prestigious technology showcase, CES.

The EDGE: Security Summit, new for 2022, is an expansive agenda bringing together top security professionals from critical infrastructures and government.  Centered around cyber, the Summit adds the connected challenges and threats posed by drones, the IoT, and emerging technologies of 5G, quantum, and edge computing. 

The umbrella of EDGE programs are in-person for GBEF Executive Committee members and by invitation.  GBEF Associate members are invited to join virtually and are guaranteed registration invitations to EDGE@CES and select GBEF activities held throughout the year outside the EDGESeries calendar.
