Event overview

The economy, our competiveness and our productivity can benefit from new information technologies which are changing and challenging business practice across government, industry and all sectors.

What will enhanced connectivity, vast data access and personalisation mean for provision of government services; for providing services to government; for regulation; and for procurement?

Following the recent release of the Queensland’s Governments Digital Economy Strategy and Action Plan we discuss the digital future for Queensland and the positive disruption to come from business and governments’ adoption of new information technologies.

This CEDA member event is open to all staff of CEDA member organisations and their guests. We encourage you to book early to secure your place.
