Illinois Digital Government Summit 2017

Nov 2 - 3, 2017
Springfield, IL


Government Technology’s passion is helping spread best practices and spurring innovation in the public sector. The Illinois 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 the 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:

Innovation and Leadership
Digital Government Trends
Emerging Technologies
Cyber Security
Data and Analytics
Mobility and Citizen Engagement
Cloud Services

A message from our Keynote Speaker

Illinois is on an impressive digital transformation journey to modernize its decades-old technology, processes and policies to better serve our customers. Under Governor Rauner’s leadership, we are quickly establishing our state as the nation’s first Smart State, and the Digital Government Summit provides an excellent forum to discuss where we are going and how to accelerate progress toward strengthening Illinois as a competitive and compassionate state. It is a team effort and your ideas and innovations are critical to our success. I encourage you to join the discussions and I look forward to seeing you at the Summit!

– Hardik Bhatt, Secretary Designate for Department of Innovation & Technology (DoIT) and Chief Digital Officer, State of Illinois
