FWD50 2019

Tuesday, November 5 - 2019
Aberdeen Pavilion, Ottawa


Discounts for ITAC Members at FWD50, November 5-7, 2019

In 2017, ITAC helped launch what has become Canada’s defining event on Digital Government. Last year, more than 1,600 people from nearly 20 nations gathered at the Aberdeen Pavillion—and left with new connections, engaging leads, and vital insight into technology adoption.


The event is back for 2019, happening November 5-7 in Ottawa. It’s grown over the years, and includes workshops, keynotes, unconferences, and interactive formats like Circlesquare. While the event tackles a wide range of topics from digital identity to culture change to security and governance, this year there will be deep focus on AI and data science; cloud migration; open computing; and security and disaster recovery.


ITAC helped make FWD50 a reality, and we’ve worked closely with the team to ensure it’s valuable for both attendees and sponsors. Here are some ways you can get involved in this can’t-miss event:


  • Sponsorship: At this point, many of the sponsorship opportunities are sold, but they need your support to make the event happen. Contact the organizers here to find out more.


  • Even if your company can’t sponsor this year, you can still join the conversation. ITAC members have a 15% discount on conference passes with this link. 
  • Content is king at FWD50—it’s not a tradeshow, but a chance to learn and share. With that in mind, if you’ve got a talk to give that isn’t a pitch, the Call for Proposals is open until September 10.

It’s said that a rising tide lifts all boats. And the digital government is a high tide of unprecedented proportions. FWD50 is the biggest gathering of public and private sector digital government experts in Canada, and we encourage all our members to get involved and support it.
