Welcome to SDinGov

The original international community event for anyone involved in designing and commissioning public services. Returning for its 9th year, SDinGov is back for an in person 3 day conference: Wednesday 28th – Friday 30th September 2022.

We attract participants who either manage, design or develop central and local government services, health and education services, emergency sector services, civic technologies and others including Government employees, consultants and design agencies.

Our curated event experience includes a mixture of inspiring keynotes, engaging live sessions, interactive group sessions, speaker Q&A - plus an all-important hallway track where you can meet and share experiences with fellow practitioners.

We are committed to improving participant and speaker inclusivity and creating a safe space for everyone to enjoy. All participants must adhere to our Code of Conduct.
