What is NextGen Government 2017?

The need for governments of all jurisdictions to deliver seamless digital services is clear, the challenge is in getting there.

Over the past few years, there has been groundbreaking progress in the approach to digital government, with the Digital Transformation Office just one example. There are further standout examples across departments, agencies and councils across all levels of government in Australia – and the world. However realising scale, continuing the pace of transformation and delivering truly customer-centric services are still the most pressing challenges facing public sector leaders today.

The 2nd annual NextGen Government 2017 conference will once again focus on enabling the transformation, bringing together leaders from all levels of government to learn from past mistakes, analyse leading projects and examine the processes and technologies that underpin a digital government.


“Great ‘state of the nation’ for digital across government with some provocative speakers challenging how much more we could be doing”

- General Manager, Digital Delivery, Australia Post (2016 delegate)


We are pleased to confirm that the 2nd annual NextGen Government conference has been rescheduled from 21 - 23 February to 19 - 21 July 2017. Feedback from our speakers, advisory panel and a range of other stakeholders in the event told us that these dates will be more suitable to ensure a better event experience for all.
