We release tickets in small batches. Prices increase as we get closer to the event. Tickets are available until the date shown - unless they sell out sooner.
If you wish to send someone different each day, you’ll need to purchase one day tickets (two and three day tickets cannot be split). Please contact us for group bookings.

We also send news and promo codes to our mailing list.
We offer people employed or contracted by central or local government a 15% discount using the code 15GOV.
This discount does not apply to consultancy employees or associates or to others providing services to customers in those sectors.
Code of Conduct
We are focused on improving participant experience and raising the bar in the tech events sector.
Our conference encourages a safe place to learn, be curious and experiment no matter what background or knowledge you bring.
SDinGov participants will need to follow any COVID-19 safety plan/requirements that we have in place at the time of the event - these will be communicated to you ahead of the event. At a minimum we'll work in accordance with advice and guidance from the UK and local governments, and we will continually review this up to, and at the event.Read more
We have a limited number of these, to apply email us with details on why you're a suitable candidate e.g.
• Low/no wage
• From an underrepresented group in this community
• You'd benefit from attending & would not ordinarily be able to
Our speakers will be people who have experience, and can share it with others - enabling them to learn and experiment.
We actively encourage first time speakers and are keen to help all speakers develop their craft.
Leave with new ideas and concepts you can put into practice straight away. You will be encouraged to tackle new, challenging ideas, and share your knowledge with others.
You'll be able to learn about different perspectives - perhaps this could be a new way of looking at long-term challenges.
We want participants to hear and experience things they can try when they get back to their work. There will be some theory, but it’ll be blended with take away points that can be applied later.
Delicious Food & Drink
Our venue will provide lunch each day, as well as tea, coffee, soft drinks and snacks.
An evening to relax and connect with fellow participants over free food and drink.
An excellent chance to make new friends and future collaborators.
It should be ‘smooth sailing’, right from your arrival, thanks to our highly experienced team.
