“Excellent quality presenters and content; probably the best conference I have attended face to face.”

Australian Taxation Office

Welcome to a Thriving and Innovative VIC.

2020 will go down as a year like no other. Victoria’s response to the pandemic has been leading by example.

With a digital strategy well into its third year and a recent freeze on IT initiatives from the most current budget, the focus for Victoria will be on building and improving upon existing solutions and capabilities; adapting to prosper in a changed world and creating the conditions for future success.

The Public Sector Innovate VIC 2021, in partnership with Ernst & Young, will take you on a journey from recovery through to growth, and provides the ideal meeting place to learn, collaborate, and discuss the trends and innovations helping encourage economic prosperity for VIC now and in the future, with some of the brightest public sector minds in the State.
