We ask public servants to innovate and take risks, so we try to embody that ourselves. Each year, we experiment with new technologies and formats to improve attendee experience. Here’s what we tried in 2021.
FWD50 2021 was hosted virtually over four days with five channels spanning topics from industry innovations to real-world case studies. Our virtual platform used AI to recommend thousands of connections to users based on their profile and spark meaningful collaborations across government. We saw an incredible amount of engagement throughout the four days, with bustling live chats across all sessions, constant interaction in our virtual “lobby”, one-on-one meetings, and private virtual gatherings.
