New Zealand’s local councils service an integrated network of countless communities with diverse needs and social complexities, from the islands in the Far North District to the frosty fjords of Southland.

Digital technologies are a vital mechanism for these communities with rich and distinct cultures so that they can maintain their connection to citizens, other councils and the NZ Government at large.

Join us at the FST Local Government New Zealand conference for 2023, where we’ll explore the unique digital demands of NZ’s councils – now and in the future.

Join us where we’ll explore:

  • Overcoming legacy thinking and supporting next-generation cloud technologies to improve connectivity
  • Catering to the needs of local citizens and cultures through public services augmented by digital
  • Cybersecurity strategies that are specific to local governments
  • Smart cities and IoT on the horizon and how local governments are preparing
  • The advancement of omnichannel services and platforms in line with citizen needs
  • And much more
