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

Do you know the most effective technology options for engagement with your community?

The EngageTech Forum is an interactive event designed to help public servants understand the technologies available 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. It’s designed so that you can share your lessons, ask questions and discuss opportunities with others experimenting with tools for engagement in New Zealand. We’ve even used experience design methods to make sure it’s actually engaging!

You’ll see a spectrum of technologies available for consultation and engagement. We’re not just talking about online engagement and social media, the EngageTech forum will cover all the different ways you can use technology to understand, engage and work with community.
