February 20, 2019, Aurora, ON – Canadian Government Executive Media (CGE) is pleased to announce that its highly anticipated sixth annual CGE Leadership Summit will be combined with its other event, TechGov Summit, which was launched in 2017. The amalgamated two-day summit will take place on April 24-25, 2019 and caters to executives, as well as, select senior IT professionals from both the public and the private sector.
The primary content themes are centred around leadership and technology with the focus for the first day built on leadership, innovation and change management. The second day is on providing services with greater speed and quality through technology.
The CGE Leadership and TechGov Summit, the merger of two of CGE’s premier events, aims primarily at bringing together public sector leaders and innovation-focused government executives to hear from representatives of the technology industry and other influential speakers.
“We are excited to fuse the CGE Leadership Summit with the TechGov Summit. As you know, technology is an integral part of everything we do today, whether it is leadership, management, or providing a service. As such, we felt that this fusion would provide the ideal forum to create a discussion of what’s important in government today,” said J. Richard Jones, President and Publisher of CGE. “It’s a bonus for event attendees as well, providing two days of high calibre speakers and content as well as networking opportunities. CGE has built a solid reputation for delivering quality content via print, online and established events. We are a well-known brand within the public sector community.”
Taking place at Fairmont Château Laurier in Ottawa, the summit’s goal is to deliver substance to all parties by addressing leadership, innovation, and citizen services challenges that governments face today and the solutions that can eliminate and mitigate the risks and problems through ongoing digital transformation. The two-day event format will offer a roster of speakers and panellists as well as a Game Changer awards program.
“The overall goal of the event is to tackle leadership challenges facing public sector and how to enhance the efficiency of government services,” said Marcello Sukhdeo, Managing Editor of CGE. “Decision makers from different department and agencies at various levels of government will hear from industry experts and discuss their organization’s challenges and plans for the future while gaining valuable peer to peer feedback.”
“We want to continue the tradition of providing our readership with an extraordinary event experience,” said Jones. “We are looking to provide the opportunity for attendees to compare notes with each other and have tangible takeaways to enhance their work.”
The summit also provides the opportunity for vendors to reach and engage with stakeholders in this much wider pool through pre-marketing initiatives, lead-gen, branding, and post-event marketing strategies. “It is an event that provides an ROI for both the attendees and vendors in a unique setting that facilitates many different learning outcomes,” said Jones.
