Find the right technology for your engagement.
The EngageTech Forums are interactive events designed to help public servants learn about and share their experiences using technology for community and stakeholder engagement.
It’s a technology showcase with a difference, where participation and peer-to-peer sharing is encouraged. You won’t just be presented to or pitched at. The events are designed using a participatory format so that you can share your lessons and discuss opportunities with others who are also experimenting with tools for engagement in your city.
We’ve even used experience design methods to make sure it’s actually engaging!
You’ll see the full spectrum of technologies available for consultation and engagement. We’re not just talking about online engagement and social media, the forum will cover all the different ways you can engage and collaborate using technology. At the EngageTech Forum, you will see and hear about the ways technology can help you to:
- understand and reach representative samples of communities
- invite participation and recruit samples
- collect, analyse and report data collected during consultation and crowdsourcing
- to build and manage relationships and communities.
The forums are being hosted in Wellington and Sydney in 2018 and we are looking for partners who would like to work with us to deliver these forums in other locations in 2019. Get in touch if you’re interested in being involved.
