Going Digital: Team CRI at NLIT 2020


Award-Winning IT Managed Services Firm Is Premier Exhibitor at 2020 Virtual NLIT Conference

Boise – Despite a different approach to this year’s National Laboratories Information Technology (NLIT) Summit, industry professionals still connected as they have at events past. CRI Advantage (CRI) continued a long history of supporting the NLIT conference as a Premier Exhibitor.  

Connectivity in the Virtual Conference

Replacing the traditional booths in the exhibit hall this year were virtual booths. The innovative solution allowed attendees to visit mini website “booths” that featured information on the exhibitors and an opportunity to chat in real time. Rounding out the event were keynote speakers and informative breakout sessions from top industry professionals.

“CRI appreciated the opportunity to be a Premier Sponsor for NLIT Summit 2020. Though, because of COVID-19, the conference was virtual in format, we still enjoyed visiting with current National Laboratory clients, networking with new contacts, and benefiting from the informational and educational sessions. CRI is committed to delivering exceptional mission support across the DOE Lab community, and the NLIT symposium is the perfect venue to build those relationships,” says CRI President & COO Ken Malach.

About The National Laboratories Information Technology (NLIT) Summit

The NLIT Summit is sponsored by the NLIT Society, a professional society founded to facilitate the exchange of best practices and ideas between IT professionals within the DOE complex, strengthen the IT infrastructure, and reduce costs within the DOE laboratory system. The Summit facilitates sharing information regarding all aspects of IT operations, technology, policies, and practices in support of research conducted at the Laboratories. It is open to all personnel in the IT field working at Laboratories and Plants affiliated with government funded activities, as well as Federal government employees in the IT field that work at agencies associated with the participating Laboratories.

The Summit consists of presentations, Community of Interest Network (COIN) collaboration sessions, panel discussions, tutorials, and technology demonstrations on a variety of topics of current interest to the IT community within DOE. There is an emphasis on providing opportunities for active participation and networking between attendees.
