Over the last 9 years our conferences have developed a reputation for having the best speakers in the public sector.  We regularly secure the support and participation of leaders from various government departments that impart their knowledge around the future direction of all elements of public sector technology, of the frameworks that are available and of their experiences as prosumer users in government.

In addition to our public sector speakers, we also have some of the leading industry figureheads from top analyst firms telling us how the sector is performing and what to expect in the coming months and years ahead. We also try to recruit X-government leaders as speakers who can offer fascinating insight into the industry both past and present and are keen to offer their opinions on where we should go next.
