Come HEAR, ENGAGE and LEARN to be part of the journey towards building a digital-native nation. Set sail for the adventure of creative digital transformation with us – embrace change today for a better tomorrow!

The Philippines has been improving its Information Technology (IT) infrastructure for the past few years, but digital transformation cannot take place without involving its citizens.

After all, digital transformation includes the process of grooming digital natives and delivering outstanding digital customer service. As such, becoming a digital-native nation will be the next step for the Philippines.

Topics Covered

Who Should Attend

The Philippines OpenGov Leadership Forum is a large-scale platform that brings international government officials to share their journey with their Philippines counterparts through an interactive discussion format.

For the past few years, OpenGov has consistently gathered over 200 top decision makers and civil servants to meet their international counterparts to discuss key issues relating to digital transformation.

This year, there will be 4 Digital Government Tracks and 2 new Financial Service Industry Tracks. All trakcs will cover topis on Augmented Intelligence, Convergence, Data and Cyber Resilience. The uniqueness of OpenGov Leadership Forum lies in the OpenGov Gamification Table (OGT) format.

Each OGT is hosted by a senior government official and an industry leader. The OGT provides an opportunity for open discussion with our international and domestic speakers. It also serves as a platform for an intimate sharing and learning session, that is parallel to none.

Come join us at the Philippines OpenGov Leadership Forum in 2020!
