“We had great feedback from last year’s event both so we’re returning to the Fairmont Resort with a program similar to last year’s successful format,” Sim said.
“With the heightened interest in how Australia can modernise its economy, we expect this year’s Tech Leaders to have a strong focus on innovation and IT transformation,” Sim said. Other likely topics include ICT policy, security, cloud computing, telecommunications and the Internet of Things.
Tech Leaders is a two-day conference, in its 14th year, that brings together Australia and New Zealand’s most influential IT and business media to meet and hear from IT vendors about the trends that are likely to face the year ahead.
“Innovation is very much a story that has transcended technology media, so we are looking to have an increased focus on business and societal transformation and our invite list will broaden appropriately.”
“We’re also looking to involve analysts, influential IT pros and other key tech and business identities because we want to encourage really robust and interesting topics with a diverse guest list,” Sim said.
Tech Leaders has always attracted high profile keynote speakers, and in recent years Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, ICT Shadow Minister Jason Clare, Senator Scott Ludlam, MP Paul Fletcher and Australian Federal Police Assistant Commissioner Tim Morris have all presented at the event.
Sim said that Tech Leaders’ 14 year history proves that participating companies derived enormous value from the event with many companies returning year-on-year.
“Tech Leaders is the one event where media and vendors take those couple of days out of their schedule to all get together in the one place, build or nurture relationships, improve their understanding of the industry and really get an amazing amount done in a really short space of time,” Sim said.
