Welcome to SDinGov

SDinGov is the premier international community event dedicated to anyone involved in designing and commissioning public services. We are excited to announce that we are returning for our 11th year and it will be an in-person three-day conference taking place on 18-20 September 2024.


Our conference is open to participants who manage, design, or develop central and local government services, health and education services, emergency sector services, civic technologies, and other related fields. Whether you are a government employee, consultant, or design agency, we welcome you to join us.

Our carefully curated event experience includes a mix of inspiring keynote speeches, engaging live sessions, interactive group sessions, and speaker Q&A.

What our participants say

"I attended the Service Design in Government conference in the first month of my Service Design masters course. This conference made me realise that Service Design is the field for me! The conference sessions were so impactful and interactive, and I left with fresh ideas, new techniques and tools, and renewed inspiration to engage in this work. But most importantly, I met new friends. I was a bit intimidated to attend this conference alone. Everyone I spoke to was so warm and welcoming, excited to find ways to help a student beginning their journey as a Service Designer. Now, I have a network of friends in this field who I regularly call up to bounce ideas off of, or collaborate with. I can’t wait to return!"

- Lexie Grüber-Pérez (2022 participant)
