The first Open Data Roundtable was held in Washington, DC on June 18, 2014. It was co-hosted by the GovLab and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) together with the U.S. Department of Commerce. Under Secretary of Commerce for Economic Affairs Mark Doms led the Department's planning and engagement with the event, and participated for the entire day. Over 20 other officials and staff from the Department of Commerce participated as well, with appearances by Secretary Penny Pritzker and Acting Deputy Secretary Bruce Andrews. Nick Sinai, U.S. Deputy Chief Technology Officer, and Erie Meyer, Senior Advisor to the U.S. CTO, represented OSTP at the event. The GovLab is now compiling a report on the Roundtable for public release.

To invite attendees for this event, the GovLab sent an email to over 120 companies in the Open Data 500 study that we know to be using Department of Commerce data, and several nonprofit organizations that either use Commerce data directly or study the way it is used. The Department of Commerce chose its own representatives, high-level officials and staff who direct the Department's data programs.
