Event Details

It is that time of the year again when the GovCMS team is busily organising its annual Mega Meetup. Last year's Meetup, held at the Hellenic Club in Woden was the largest GovCMS event to-date and offered 400 attendees with an opportunity to mingle, ask questions and find opportunity to collaborate.

There are many exciting changes coming to GovCMS, including the new hosting platform and developer experience, plus additional services that are available now and some that will be available in the future.

Whether you are a new or existing customer, the GovCMS Mega Meetup will provide you with an opportunity to hear about the next generation of GovCMS and to network with other teams working in digital government and the private sector.
