GTEC 2012 – Celebrating 20 Years of Innovation
As GTEC marks its 20th anniversary, governments are facing an environment of unprecedented change. The pressure to do more with less continues and the need to collaborate and innovate has never been more important. In response to this increased pressure, GTEC 2012 will be centered on the theme, Collaborating & Innovating – Making a Difference for Canadians.
For 20 years GTEC (Government Technology Exhibition and Conference) has been inspiring public sector IT professionals with thought provoking demonstrations of advanced technology and a powerful line-up of speakers that features the best and brightest industry leaders. GTEC is Canada's Government Technology Event, and one which attracts over 7,000 participants, renowned speakers, and exhibitors from across Canada and around the world annually. The event offers something for everyone: from CIOs and ADMs to Program Managers and IT personnel. All come to meet and network with peers, celebrate technology accomplishments, learn from a "who's who" of key note speakers, and see demonstrations of the most advanced technologies that are driving public sector IT initiatives at all levels of government in Canada and other countries.
The event continues to build on a proven format -- an informative 4 day Conference, impressive 2 day Exhibition and a captivating evening that includes a Gala Award Ceremony celebrating IT public sector accomplishments at the municipal, provincial, and federal level.
GTEC 2012 participants will collaborate and participate in discussions on:
Pursuing the principles of open government as well as open data and transparency
Exploring and examining processes and practices that support innovation while reducing costs
Comparing Technology & Tools – past, present and future
Enabling the Organizational and Policy Infrastructure/Foundation
