Event description


EngageTech Forum is an interactive event designed to help government staff understand the spectrum of technologies available for online and offline community consultation and stakeholder engagement.


This is a technology showcase and workshop with a difference where we put experience design methods into action. Find out more about the different ways you can use technology to understand, engage and work with community. Discover the full spectrum of technologies available for consultation and engagement in five stages:

  • Understand and reach representative samples of communities
  • Invite participation, recruit samples and facilitate engagement
  • Improve your public engagement strategy implementation
  • Collect, analyse & report data collected during consultation/crowdsourcing
  • Build and manage relationships and communities

Presentations and demonstrations are supported by participation and peer-to-peer sharing. We encourage you to ask questions, share lessons and discuss opportunities with others using engagement tools.


Join us to connect with your peers, technology experts and vendors at EngageTech Forum 2018. Register now.
