Our partners

Since its first edition in 2017, FWD50 has become one of the leading digital government conferences in the world, with over 30 countries joining the event each year. And we couldn’t have done this without the support of our partners.

FWD50 is not a tradeshow. Rather than booths and vendor pitches, we focus on expert content, curated networking, and concrete takeaways, so that every participant has to bring something to the conversation.

And our sponsors—some of the world’s leading tech companies—support the event year after year because they believe that a rising tide lifts all boats. Their support helps make an open, interactive, event, accessible to a wide audience, possible.

Want to learn more about how you can support the event and share your message with technologists and government executives from around the world? Get in touch and we’ll share a prospectus, some data on our growth and attendee demographics, and ways you might get involved.
