The local government sector in Queensland has reached a critical moment in its evolution as the pillars of digital, communication, customer service and ‘business as usual’ are intertwined.

LGx: Connecting the now is a two-day exploration of this synergy. This unique event will host leaders with multi-disciplinary skills across technology, digital, marketing and communication to share their insights – and actionable take-aways – for the future of communication in the public sector and beyond.




Bespoke professional development opportunities

Experience hands-on professional development opportunities with real actions you can implement for your community – think walking away with weekly social media templates, new skills in understanding today's communication cycle and the technical training you've never known you always needed.

Live campaign building

Ever been involved in building a live communication campaign? We're crowdsourcing ideas for a sector-wide local government campaign in the leadup to the event, then workshopping it with experts from the fields of government relations, marketing, branding and media – and with you.

Research that's relevant

State-wide look at communications in local government
We know councils want to connect with information and examples of best practice communication to help them better share their story. At LGx we'll be launching a report which asks the questions: What does best practice communication look like in today's councils? Where are we going – and how can we get there?


Give your brain a rest at networking opportunities while mingling with communication professionals, sector leaders and private sector reps – all looking to learn and share. Hear case studies from councils from all corners of the state – with new and interesting stories to tell around communication and engagement in a new world.
