PSIS Alberta 2022 – Canada

Public Sector Innovation Show
Alberta

Wednesday, October 12, 2022
Edmonton | 8am MT

Event Overview

Alberta’s public sector is ripe for digital innovation. Public sector organizations are using technology to connect with citizens to build a more resilient, innovative, and diversified economy. Innovation is not just about implementing technology. Public sector organizations are now actively collaborating with an array of external organizations and industry partners to gather feedback about digital solutions to create more robust and user-friendly public services.


When we work together with organizations and experts across a wide range of departments, we can turn ideas into real solutions that make a real difference for citizens. For the Albertan public sector, this opens the door to reimagine a future in which all citizens have access to the benefits and opportunities afforded by a digital economy. How can public sector leaders continue the transformation momentum and build a culture that is forward-thinking, innovative and citizen-centric?


The Public Sector Innovation Show – Alberta, is a one-day, in-person event designed to help you navigate the future digital landscape to benchmark best practices, leverage emerging technologies and harness the latest innovations to deliver life-changing outcomes for your citizens. This event will examine how to streamline operations and provide improved citizen services by empowering the public sector with best-in-class tools and applications.
