digitech18 – the technology & procurement showcase for the public sector
digitech18, which takes place at the First Direct Arena in Leeds on 31 October, is a new show that has been designed to address the issues and challenges faced by the UK public sector specifically when procuring technology.
Alongside a large exhibition featuring 60+ framework suppliers and event partners, two dedicated seminar theatres and an 800 seater plenary area will deliver knowledge, insight and information for government technology specialists.
The UK public sector spend on technology as a proportion of budgets has seen a significant increase over recent years. Additionally, the emphasis now being placed on the role of IT as a key enabler in the transformation of both public services and the way in which those services are delivered can only lead to greater focus on how to derive the greatest benefit from spending on technology products and services.
Bringing together a wide range of speakers and workshops, the event will help to demystify the technology landscape and showcase some of the latest technology solutions that are helping to transform the way in which public sector organisations deliver services for citizens.
Timed to reflect the urgent pressures faced by public sector organisations in delivering their digital transformation agendas, including tackling IT disaggregation and transitioning services to the cloud, plus the Network 2 framework and the reissue of G-Cloud 10 over summer, digitech18 is set to be a must attend event for all public sector organisations.
Produced in partnership with the Crown Commercial Service, with additional partners including SOCITM, GDS, Cabinet Office, the Local Government Association and many more, there is something to appeal to technology leads and commercial teams from across the entire public sector. Delegates will learn more about how they can procure and deliver transformational change in their own organisation and maximise the benefits that their technology spend can provide.
The event is free to attend for those directly employed by public sector bodies.
