2019 Forum
SUPPORTING PARTNERS

An interactive forum to help government staff find the right technology for engagement

In 2018 engage2 ran two EngageTech Forums, the first in Wellington New Zealand on 28th August and the second on the 1st November in Sydney Australia.

During these Forums participants discussed the full spectrum of technologies available for consultation and engagement and shared how they are using them. They also heard from peers using technology to transform the way governments organisations engage and saw speed demos from some of New Zealand and Australia’s leading engagement technology providers. The sponsors, partners and speakers involved in these Forums are shown on this page.

The use cases, lessons and tips shared by participants in these Forums were collated into post-event reports for everyone involved. engage2 is also preparing a public report summarising what we observed across the two Forums.

The 2019 EngageTech Forums will be held on the 15th May in Auckland. Get in touch if you would like to be involved.
