Association of Public Sector Information Professionals

Developing Professionalism in Informatics


Over the years, Professional Development Week (PDW) has continued to exceed expectations as each year about 1,300 information management and information technology professionals participate. Workshops, keynotes, and seminars are aimed at providing insight into the management, technologies, and the people side of IM and IT.

DPI is very appreciative of the enabling role that our sponsors play in allowing us the opportunity to provide our delegates with ongoing high quality professional development throughout the year. PDW offers our delegates an excellent blend of technology and management sessions coupled with superb social events.

PDW sponsors would be hard pressed to find a comparable vehicle to participate in while improving their visibility and name recognition across government.

“Shaped by interactions with commercial enterprise, citizens have come to expect the same level of customer experience with the public sector.

This is changing the way public services are planned, architected and delivered, and puts a greater emphasis on the client experience than ever before.

Adobe enables transformation with its software and managed services to help drive a new wave of experience-led government.

As the Elite Sponsor for PD Week 2017, we are excited to share our thoughts about delivering digital experiences that matter, and learn from our customers, colleagues and the industry at PD Week 2017 about what matters to them.”
