Building the Smarter State campaign week 2019 | #techUKSmarterState

This Campaign Week (2- 6 September) will unpack what the smarter state will look like and the technologies that will help make the vision a reality.

This week techUK is delighted to be hosting a Campaign Week in the run up to our flagship conference, Building the Smarter State. Returning for the fifth year, the 2019 conference will focus on the twin themes of People & Places, looking at how emerging tech and societal trends will transform how public services are designed and delivered, the workforce that will be delivering them and the citizens they're designed for. We're also pleased to have Accenture as this year's sponsor.  

Through lots of blogs and case studies submitted by our members and stakeholders, the week (2-6 September) will be exploring what the smarter state will look like and the technologies that will help make this vision a reality. Each day throughout this week is dedicated to an exciting theme with blog posts surrounding each one.
