Think-Digital-Government-2017The upcoming Think Digital Government Conference has been moved to February to ensure delegates get the most up to date information about government plans for digital transformation.

Originally pencilled in for December, the new date is now Friday, 10 February, organisers confirmed last night, after high-level consultation with senior stakeholders at GDS (the Government Digital Service).

That’s because GDS heavyweights are confirmed to speak about the long-awaited four year plan in detail at the Think Digital Government conference so as to offer public sector professionals the very latest insights into its implications.

All registered attendees will have their places secured for the new event – though if you have not yet registered, please check that your place is safe for 10 February by completing your registration as soon as possible.

The venue, London’s Business Design Centre, Islington, remains the same.

Explaining the decision to reschedule, organisers said that, “It would not be in anyone’s interests for us to run a digital Government Conference without the support or participation of the Governments own Digital Service.”

GDS has reconfirmed its support for the conference, with the Government Lead on Digital Transformation and the driving force behind the new strategy, Andrew Besford, confirmed as one of the primary keynote speakers.

Over 150 delegates are already confirmed for the event, with representation from across 60 different government agencies.

THINK Digital Partners says it’s communicated the news to all registered delegates last night, and will be communicating this change to a wider audience over the next few days.

If you have any questions on this, please email the organisers at matt.stanley@thinkdigitalpartners.com – and hope to see you in February!
