Event Information

Public Sector Data Summit 2023
Thursday 19th January 2023, QEII Centre, London SW1P 3EE  – 

Please note that this is a live face-to-face event (there is no option to attend virtually) 

The public sector manages colossal amounts of data and as result is becoming increasingly aware of the benefits of unlocking big data, the use of data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning. A recent report stated that although all public sector organisations believe these four pillars are key to improving public services and efficiencies within their organisations, over 40% said they were not confident or lacked the knowledge, expertise or experience to fully harness these technologies to their optimum potential.

After the success of the inaugural Public Sector Data Summit in 2022 we will again be inviting delegates to the QEII Conference Centre in Westminster on 19/01/2023. This conference aims to break down the barriers to allow attendees to fully understand how implementing the newest technologies and learning from case study presentations can aid improvements, efficiencies and savings across local and central government, the NHS and the wider public sector.

Throughout the day there will be presentations from leading senior public sector officials and experts from private sector solution providers. Places for those directly employed in the public sector can attend at no charge and a buffet lunch and refreshments will be provided.
