The UK’s leading event dedicated to sharing best practice, emerging trends and innovations in Business and IT across Central Government and Executive Agencies

Digital activities and technology innovations are critical to achieving cost savings and unlocking efficiencies across central government. Between 2014-15, technology contributed to saving the taxpayer an estimated £1.7bn, with Government Digital Service controls on departmental spend accounting for £391m of this. With ambitious plans to transition away from legacy systems towards common technology infrastructures and shared platform services – the UK government is committed to delivering better public services for less.

The reimagining of government interaction with citizens is matched by efforts to cultivate a Civil Service that is restless about continuous improvement. While technology has helped to kick-start new conversations and new ways of working, there is still some way to go in ensuring ICT is a key enabler in transforming the way public services are designed, delivered and consumed by end-users. Whitehall Media’s 7th CGBT conference is a premier annual event dedicated to bridging the business gap between the Civil Service and technology capabilities required to build world-class services that are simpler, faster and clearer to use. The must-attend national event will bring together hundreds of key decision-makers in central government and provide a powerful platform for technology pioneers to discuss both policy and best practice required to achieve a secure, innovative and modern government.
