Caribbean Digital Summit

16-17 October 2023 – Bridgetown, Barbados

The round table summit for the Caribbean’s digital leaders.

Hosted by the Prime Minister of Barbados, the Caribbean Digital Summit brings together national and departmental digital chiefs from across the Caribbean for open, informal discussion of the opportunities and challenges around public sector digital transformation.


About the event

Hosted by the Prime Minister of Barbados and organised by Global Government Forum, this inaugural Caribbean Digital Summit will blend presentations delivered by participants and Knowledge Partners with informal round table discussions. The event allows delegates to speak openly and honestly about their successes, the challenges, and what they have learned along the way.

Sometimes, you learn most from talking to people who do a job like yours. And for many national and departmental digital leaders, that often means your peers working for other governments. For while many of the challenges you face are unique within your country, governments around the Caribbean region must address a similar set of opportunities, risks, obstacles and decisions in their pursuit of digital transformation. The Caribbean digital leaders have a huge amount to learn from one another.

The roundtable event will be co-located with the Caribbean Telecommunications Union regional ICT Week, together creating a highly impactful and innovative event programme for digital leaders in the region. This will allow leaders to travel to Bridgetown for five days of digital discussions and activities that will help accelerate digital transformation and development for the Caribbean region.

Inspired by our Global Government Digital Summits and our Digital Leader’s Research, the Caribbean Digital Summit is open to national and federal public servants working as national digital leaders, departmental heads of digital, cyber security, data and IT, and heads of the digital profession from around the Caribbean region.
