Thank you for attending Data Transparency 2016!

From the whole Data Foundation team, we'd like to thank you for being a part of our fourth annual open data conference, Data Transparency 2016 (DT2016), featuring the first-ever White House Open Data Innovation Summit. Also, we'd like to thank all DT2016 sponsors, including the Title Sponsor, Socrata.

DT2016 was Washington's largest-ever open data event, and the first time the Data Foundation hosted the flagship conference. Over 1,000 open data enthusiasts gathered at the Washington Convention Center to share the State of the Union of Open Data and grow the open data community.
