Connecticut Digital Government Summit 2018

Oct 2, 2018
Hartford, CT


Government Technology’s passion is helping spread best practices and spurring innovation in the public sector. The Connecticut Digital Government Summit is designed to do just that. The summit has an advisory board that gathers public sector and private sector leaders to create an agenda designed to make that passion relevant and actionable to the state and local government organizations attending the summit. Participants tell us they use inspirational keynotes, leadership discussions, networking breaks, and timely topics discussed in the numerous breakout sessions to help advance the goals of their organizations and their own career paths.

Topics Include:

  • Assessing Cybersecurity Risk, Vulnerability and Chances of Survival
  • The Citizen Experience
  • Crisis Management and Response
  • The Collaborative Workplace
  • Analytics Today
  • AI, Machine Learning and Chatbots for Digital Service in Government
  • How Blockchains Will Impact the Public Sector
  • Future of Transportation

A message from our Keynote Speaker

It is my pleasure to invite you to the 2nd annual Connecticut Digital Government Summit to be held in Hartford on October 2. This Summit will provide a unique opportunity for government business and technology leaders from across the state to discuss our common challenges, hear from those that are solving similar challenges and learn about industry innovation. This event will feature national speakers and breakout sessions. Technology is rapidly transforming the way we provide services and engage with our employees, agencies, citizens and businesses. I hope that you will join me in building the next generation of government services. I believe that the Digital Government Summit is a great way to work together towards this important goal.

– Mark Raymond, Chief Information Officer, State of Connecticut
