In recent years, the amount of money the UK public sector has spent on technology has increased dramatically. It’s little wonder: technology is reshaping our world and has quickly become the key enabler when it comes to the transformation of public services.

At the end of October, Digitech 2018 will celebrate this fact by throwing open its doors to welcome public sector workers and technology recruitment specialists from all across the country. In a range of exciting sessions and talks, these attendees will discuss the most pressing and topical technological issues facing the public sector today.

Here’s more information about the event and specifically why, if you’re a digital business in the UK, you absolutely need to check out Digitech 2018.

A Host of Seminar Sessions

With over twenty informative seminar sessions on offer throughout the day, there is something for everyone depending on your exact area of expertise and interests.

The sessions are based around case studies taken from across the public sector, and these seminars are led by experts hailing from both the public and private sectors. At just twenty minutes each, the seminars offer attendees short bursts of information on topics chosen to inform and inspire.

The range of topics that will be explored is truly staggering and the organisers have done a wonderful job. We’ll learn from the experiences of the likes of IBM, the Crown Commercial Service, the NHS, and many more. You can learn more about the sessions and see the agenda in more detail here.

An Informative Plenary

The plenary session is going to be chaired by Martin Ferguson, the Director of Policy and Research for Socitm.

The rest of the panel are equally knowledgeable, and this session will give them the opportunity to set the tone for the day and explore some of the most pressing tech issues through short presentations and a “Question Time” panel debate, that will, as in previous years, facilitate some healthy audience interaction.

Networking Opportunities

At Digitech 2018, there will be dedicated networking and refreshment spaces on the day so you’ll have the perfect opportunity to forge new connections and rekindle old ones. The event is sure to attract a huge number of attendees and variety of visitors, so there’s sure to be something and someone for everyone.

Digitech 2018: The Logistics

In terms of the specifics, the event is going to be hosted in Leeds at the wonderful First Direct Arena on the 31st October.

Digitech 2018 is free of charge for public sector employees, whilst those attendees from the private sector will have to pay £99 +VAT. In our opinion, the fee is certainly worth it when you consider the range and quality of the information that is on show.
