Open Opportunity Forum

Open Opportunity Forum

Business with Government in the Digital Age

Thursday 5th November, 7:30am - 11am, 20 Hunter Street, Sydney CBD

A breakfast forum, Open Opportunity is an open discussion platform for Australian technology businesses to better understand how to engage more effectively with a "21st Century Government".

The Open Opportunity Forum, a breakfast event, is a chance for Australian mid-tier technology providers to better understand the digital transformation plans of the Australian Government, and the opportunities that these present.

The change of leadership of the federal government has created an entirely new outlook for the tech sector in Australia. In particular, Malcolm Turnbull’s leadership has added momentum to digital transformation initiatives already in the public sector. There are real opportunities for Australian businesses here. But engaging with government in digital needs different thinking. has designed this Forum to address these digital opportunities, specifically targeting Australia’s successful mid-tier tech companies, with the support of the entire technology eco-system.

The aim is to provide the highest level briefing of digital engagement – to give these companies a practical guide to meeting public sector demand. There has never been a more exciting time to compete in this space and the opportunities are endless - but must be realised.
