Every December, techUK’s Local Public Services Programme holds its annual future gazing event which is an opportunity to reflect and celebrate the achievements of digital local government from the past year.

Join us as we once again put the spotlight on local government tech innovations, reflect on the digital trends and make our predictions for 2022. Here were the predictions for 2021.

Just some of the topics to be covered include:

  • The evolving role of suppliers, and what that means for future relationship of buyer-supplier?
  • How has the pandemic impacted public procurement? What does the future local gov tech landscape look like?
  • What transformation trends will be taken forward in 2022?
  • What are the technologies that are enabling improved outcomes for people and place?
  • How do we build on the good digital innovations from this year and encourage further collaboration across the local ecosystem?
