LocalGov Drupal Week 2023 Sponsorship pack


We’re looking for sponsors for our first annual LocalGov Drupal Week

November 13th - 17th 20023

It’s an excellent opportunity to reach, network and solve problems with digital professionals from councils across the UK and beyond.

Our series of events will allow sponsors to talk directly to a community of hundreds of digital professionals who control millions of pounds of budget for their authorities' digital estates.
