Key Highlights of SDP 2024:

  • Industry-Centric Streams: At the core of the main conference, spanning three dynamic days, lies an innovative approach. Three dedicated rooms have been meticulously designed to align with industry streams, covering government, energy, pharma, natural resources, and even a "Chair's Choice" category for unconventional topics. Attendees seeking profound insights into artificial intelligence, organizational transformation, or innovation within the realm of strategy and decision-making will find themselves seamlessly navigating between rooms, fostering comprehensive discussions.

  • Special Sessions: The conference kicks off with a day dedicated to tailored individual sessions that cater to both seasoned practitioners and newcomers alike. The primary objective is to unite all participants at the culmination of these sessions, creating a distinctive learning opportunity. This format enables in-depth exploration of the central themes that define the conference. The second day promises an extraordinary, DC-centric, interactive experience that ensures every attendee departs with unforgettable memories and fresh perspectives.

  • Immersive Workshops: The bookends of the conference promise to be equally engaging. Six immersive, in-person workshops are meticulously designed to encourage dynamic participation and stimulate innovative problem-solving. These workshops align closely with the core conference themes, providing attendees with actionable insights to take back to their respective fields.

  • 30th Anniversary Celebration: The opening evening of the conference is dedicated to a special 30th Anniversary dinner—an exclusive occasion to celebrate SDP's rich history and embrace the myriad opportunities that lie ahead.

Now, more than ever, SDP invites its members and collaborators to actively participate in elevating the conference experience. The vision is clear: to transform this event into more than just an intellectual gathering. The aim is to create an immersive and profoundly interactive platform that fosters engagement, dialogue, and collaborative thinking. By doing so, SDP aspires to attract a broader audience and, in turn, significantly enhance its membership.
