Schaumburg-based Motorola Solutions Inc. is holding its annual stockholders’ meeting in Washington, D.C. this year, going out of town for its first shareholders gathering as an independent company.

This year also marks the first time Motorola has held its stockholders meeting outside of the Chicago area.

Motorola Inc. split into two companies in January. Motorola Solutions focuses on communications gear and software for government and industrial clients.

It is convening in Washington because of “the importance of government and public safety markets to the Motorola Solutions business, in particular our federal government customers,” the company said in its proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission Tuesday.
