What are Open Days?

Open Days are an opportunity for Local Authorities to come together to network and share digital transformation successes.

We welcome all who are part of a local government organisation, but the open days are mainly for:

  • CIOs, senior leaders, service heads
  • Customer services managers
  • Digital and transformation managers

Collaborate, show and tell

We base our Open Days around topics of relevance in Local Government and pair these topics with Authorities who have delivered digital transformation with measurable results or who have concrete plans to implement channel shift. 

These are usually half-day events, hosted in-person, and in the location of the Authority presenting. The events are currently on-hold due to the Coronavirus.

Why attend?

Join and network with other Local Authorities on similar digital transformation journeys.
