It turns out that the same magic ingredients that make for an award-winning magazine (content, relationships, credibility, Dutch courage) also make for superior quality conferences – which explains how we are able to organise some of the world’s most forward-looking government-to-government events.
For ten years the annual FutureGov Summit has been the top gathering of Asia Pacific’s senior civil servants: three days of brainstorming in a relaxed closed-door setting, hosted by the editors of FutureGov Asia Pacific magazine, and joined by top public servants from Europe and North America, as well as key technology leaders.
For the last four years in Canberra, our FutureGov Summit Australia has been a high-level dialogue between federal and state officials, and their counterparts from the advanced countries of Asia, Europe and the Americas, and we enjoy a unique level of official support.
Beyond these our country-specific FutureGov Forums are held throughout the region – each year in China, India, Singapore, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, The Philippines, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Indonesia and New Zealand. Each of these provides the respective country or territory’s civil servants with opportunities to discuss the most pressing challenges facing public administration with the editors and researchers from FutureGov, as well as invited subject matter experts from overseas.
In addition to these FutureGov-branded events, our expanding conference portfolio also focuses on healthcare, education and public sector finance. This ensures that we provide platforms for peer-learning and one-to-one discussions in all of the key markets covered by our FutureGov publications, as well as opportunities for some of the world’s leading technology, consultancy and financial solutions companies to engage with government more effectively.
You can’t fake the enthusiasm that our public sector and security delegates have for our events, or our sponsors for that matter. At the end of the day our events succeed simply because we treat each one of them as an individual, intimate gathering of longterm friends – which in most cases is exactly what they are.
