Why Attend?

While the 2020 event is a wrap, attendees have access to recordings of every session.

FWD50 asks one fundamental question: How do we use technology to make society better for all? Since 2017, thousands of public servants, innovators, academics, and civic organizers from over 30 countries have gathered to craft a response.

For those working for change, FWD50 is a chance to know they aren’t alone, and to
learn new skills and technologies they can put to work immediately.

For our industry partners, FWD50 delivers a trusted platform for their executives, breakouts to showcase their innovation, and workshops where they demonstrate real value to public servants.

For academics, agitators, and front-line workers, the conference is a chance to share hard-won lessons and collaborate with peers across the country and around the world.

Join us in this remarkable year. We look forward to adding your voice to that of the many countries and organizations charting a course for digital government in the modern era.

FWD50 2020 is an entirely virtual event.
