Northern Ireland’s Digital Government Conference to take place in October

  • The annual NI Digital Government Conference will take place on Wednesday 6 October 2021.

    The conference will provide a valuable opportunity to bring together key stakeholders to gain insight into the government’s objectives for digital transformation and hear directly from those responsible for driving this forward. 

    This will be a Hybrid Event taking place both online and at the Europa Hotel in Belfast.

    There has perhaps been no bigger challenge in recent times than the coronavirus pandemic – something that has sharply brought into focus the need for public service organisations to be responsive, resilient and agile.  

    From March 2020, the way we live and work has been utterly changed, as has the role that technology now plays.

    As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic all areas of our public services have been hugely impacted, particularly health, education and social welfare. Digital inclusion has never been more important.  

    As part of the national Covid-19 response, the move towards digital public services has been accelerated to ensure they can deliver for Northern Ireland’s citizens. 

    Throughout this conference attendees will hear directly from those responsible for driving these programmes forward at the 2021 Digital Government Conference.

    Topics covered during this conference will include: Digital strategy for resilient organisations post pandemic, making government accessible, digital transformation for resilience and better healthcare, supporting hybrid working, cyber security and much more.
