Why Sponsor Government Digital Transformation NZ?

Do you need to engage and promote your brand and products to key Government and Industry decision-makers developing New Zealand’s digital capabilities?

Sponsoring the conference, or even taking an exhibition stand, is a fantastic way of raising your company’s profile within the industry and creating greater awareness of your brand. Outside of the conference rooms, the 3rd Annual Government Digital Transformation NZ Summit will see a larger focus on marketplace connections between Government and suppliers. 
In fact, we’ve tripled the exhibition space, meaning more opportunities for networking and connections. The conference program itself also has increased scope for the opportunity to speak, join a panel, or host a roundtable discussion.

The Government Digital Transformation NZ Summit is the result of months of industry consultation and independent research and will address compelling issues that will be delivered by industry leaders and experts. It will feature speakers from a carefully selected range of organisations, with each speaker chosen for their unique insights, leadership and valuable experiences, and is a significant opportunity to exchange ideas and network in an informal environment.
