Returning to Pōneke / Wellington in May 2023, the 7th Annual CIO, Digital Transformation & Data in Government NZ Summit is an exclusive invitation-only event that brings together digital transformation leaders across New Zealand’s public sector to enable digital service delivery and better citizen outcomes.

As we work towards a more equitable digital Aotearoa, where we put people and businesses at the centre of service delivery, new and emerging technologies offer a glimpse into what that might look like. Government digital transformation executives, however, have to contend with legacy systems, limited budgets and, more often than not, organisational resistance to change. The need to modernise public service delivery is clear, but the “how” is much more challenging. Connect and collaborate with more than 350 government digital, data and technology executives at New Zealand’s premier invitation-only event who are actively looking for solutions to transform public service delivery for a more equitable Aotearoa.


  • How to implement the right processes and technologies to modernise public service delivery without adding complexity to existing legacy systems?
  • How to drive digital transformation at scale and overcome organisational resistance to change?
  • How to enable greater cross-government collaboration, data sharing and interoperability for better citizen outcomes?
