DTA to hold Digital Summit in November

The Digital Transformation Agency will hold this year's Digital Summit and Australian Government Digital Awards virtually in November.

The event will be held across four days from 10–19 November, with award announcements each day.

The agency has now put out a call for speakers, case studies, exhibitors and sponsors for the event, based on this year’s four themes.

Day one of the event on 10 November will focus on disruption and change. The second day on 12 November will have the theme of human-centred government services. Day three on 17 November will be based on leadership and people, and the final day on 19 November will have the theme of technology and data.

This year’s program will also have events based on the current state of digital government services, the impact of recent crises and events including COVID-19 and an exhibition showcasing digital transformation successes from industry and government.

It will also feature interactive virtual workshops and case study sessions and virtual networking opportunities.

Minister for Government Services and the National Disability Insurance Scheme Stuart Robert will deliver the opening keynote for the summit.

According to DTA CEO Randall Brugeaud, the event will bring together digital leaders and practitioners, giving them an opportunity to see the innovative work taking place across government and industry in the digital space.

“[This] has been a challenging year, but it has driven many of us to think and work differently. As with many industries and programs, COVID-19 has led to an acceleration of our digital transformation journey,” he said.

“The Digital Summit 2020 will bring together government and industry to share insights and experiences while engaging with new and existing networks.”
