FST Local Government New Zealand 2019

Following the success of our inaugural Local Government: New Zealand conference in 2018, we are pleased to announce the return of the event in 2019. This unique conference will showcase breakthrough digital innovations and government technologies, featuring senior leaders at the forefront of local government innovation.

New Zealand maintains an intricate patchwork of 78 distinct local governments across two distinct island geographies. This hugely varied country, with a unique diversity of people, industries and topographies, has given rise to distinct local communities, each demanding vastly different governance and citizen service models. Technology has served to bridge the oftentimes-vast development gap between these discrete local governments, supporting greater interoperability and information sharing among councils, as well as servicing citizens’ unique demands.
