About Festival of Innovation
Festival of Innovation is GovInsider’s annual flagship event that highlights the best of public sector innovation in Singapore, Southeast Asia, and the world. From success stories to shared challenges, this is an opportunity to learn from each other and share how your agency has innovated or overcome hurdles.The event was named one of the six “key” global events for government gatherings by the Bennett Institute for Public Policy at the University of Cambridge.
The event hosts delegates from the public sector, including government officials, civil servants, and international and regional organisations, alongside a showcase of upcoming technologies for government agencies to learn about. Delegates get a chance to network with their counterparts from other agencies and other countries, as well as with our sponsors to learn more about potential solutions to the pressing challenges of the day.

AGENDA AT A GLANCE
13 July - Wednesday
Day 1: New frontiers
Across human history, fearless sailors from every corner of the globe have set out in search of adventure, trade, and new lands. Much like these explorers, governments are now diving into uncharted territories, with the adoption of new technologies and strategies.
Day 1 of GovInsider focuses on New Frontiers and the prospects that await governments in the coming years. From laying the groundwork for 5G or preparing for future threats like Virus X, New Frontiers will explore the challenges and benefits on the horizon for governments.
Day 2: Wayfinding
When ships' sails were the engine of discovery, stars were the guiding light that helped explorers find new worlds. While the world has changed, it's more important than ever for governments to navigate effectively towards future innovation.
Day 2 of GovInsider’s Festival of Innovation focuses on Wayfinding, the art of navigating towards uncharted waters. Whether its new ways to gather citizen insights, or the best strategies for regulating cyberspace, our Wayfinding day will explore how governments can prepare for the opportunities ahead.
