About Festival of Innovation

GovInsider’s Festival of Innovation, Asia’s leading conference for government innovation, will bring together over 1,000 public sector decision makers and technologists alike to chart new frontiers for a society remade by the pandemic.

We have been named one of the six “key” global events where digital government officials can share their learnings by the Bennett Institute for Public Policy at the University of Cambridge.

  • Building strong communities across society

  • Growing digital at home and abroad 

  • Empowering citizens and public servants

  • Creating resilient cities and a resilient planet 

  • The up-and-coming tech to solve existing challenges

  • Identifying threats and challenges on the horizon

  • Learning from government innovators overseas

  • Exploring how to innovate well

Through a series of experiential sessions, interactive debates, and high-level presentations, our content gives public sector innovators and private tech companies alike, exclusive access to the discussions, strategies and cutting-edge technologies needed to co-create a visionary government.

AGENDA AT A GLANCE

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.

13 July - Wednesday

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.

14 July - Thursday
