Washington , D.C. April 1 , 2005 .

Over 20,0000 attendees are expected to attend this year's exhibition at the Washington Convention Center. FOSE 2005 has the over-arching theme of "Where Government Meets Technology."
"Working with leading edge Tablet PC and Digital Pen companies like Hewlett Packard, Gateway, Itronix, Logitech, Toshiba and Fujitsu, Mi-Co staff will provide an excellent opportunity for US Government professionals to see demonstrations of Mi-Forms software and have extensive discussions involving the opportunities and challenges that governmental IT professionals face in mobile data collection, digitization and communication with existing government databases," said Mi-Co's Senior VP of Marketing and Sales Strategy, Barrett Joyner.
FOSE 2005, now in its 29th year, is the largest and longest-running technology tradeshow for government professionals and is being held in the Washington DC Convention Center on April 5 through April 7. FOSE's explicit goal is to bring government and industry professionals together providing an open forum of discussion on today's technology and issues.
"With keynote speakers focusing on how our government plans to become a digital nation, Mi-Co is excited about this opportunity to demonstrate how Mi-Forms software can increase the efficiency and accuracy of mobile data capture in the government sector," said Dr. Greg Clary, Mi-Co Chief Technology Officer.
Direct participation at FOSE is one aspect of Mi-Co's ongoing commitment to understanding and meeting the unique requirements of its governmental customers. For over 4 years, government mobile data solutions have been one of Mi-Co's key areas of concentration.
Representatives of Mi-Co's Government Alliance Partner Program will also be in attendance at FOSE to interact with current partners such as
