KPMG, 8350 Broad Street, 6th Floor Training rooms,
McLean, VA 22102 | Directions

Getting here: Parking in the Boro Tower garage will be validated by event organizers. If you prefer to metro, the metro’s Silver Line Greensboro station is a very short walk. 


The technology function often struggles to keep pace with the sheer scale of new demands, which is why KPMG is hosting Innovation Week on November 4 to 8 – in our new office in The Boro. Join us to hear inspiring and informative “TECH Talks” along with the opportunity for hands-on interactions with technology innovations. There will also be plenty of chances to network with some of the brightest minds in the Mid-Atlantic.

This weeklong event will feature experts and hands-on experiences with some of today’s most exciting innovations, including:

  • Voice assistants
  • Virtual and augmented reality
  • Projection mapping, and
  • Much more!

We’ve designed Innovation Week to give everyone from clients and colleagues to partners and alums the chance to see and experience some of today’s most complex innovations.
