We’re back for 2023 with a better, bolder and more actionable agenda.

Counter Fraud 2023 offers the latest fraud policy updates with a practical focus on how you can change your investigative methods, and how you can incorporate technology meaningfully into your fraud detection ecosystem.

We made the decision to sponsor our first Govnet event at the start of 2021, and it turned out to be one of the best decisions we made all year. Not only did the event contain the perfect audience fit for us, but the Govnet team helped us to tailor our message to give us the best chance to achieve our goals from the event. Their professionalism and enthusiasm meant it was a great success for us, as we achieved more than 10:1 ROI within 6 months of the event, with the same again in pipeline we’re expecting to close by year end. We’ve never re-signed up to an annual event faster!

The conference is always a great place to network in order to improve areas of business. It always re-motivates me to return to work and drive the Anti-Fraud message forward for another year. This year was particularly good, the content was relevant and useful. The venue was excellent and the organisation was very good.
