Event Information

We at Public sector Connect and our partners Crown Commercial Service are delighted to introduce digitech18, a new and innovative event aimed at everyone with an interest in technology for the UK public sector. 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.

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 of charge for public sector delegates and will provide you with access to some of the UK’s leading technology experts in our two theatres, covering commercial excellence, the changing technology market, transformation and policy.
