CEBIT Australia is Asia Pacific’s largest and longest running business and technology exhibition and conference. Some of the nation’s most influential leaders will take part in CEBIT Australia 2019, at Sydney’s International Convention Centre from 29th to 31st October. Tickets for one- and three-day access are now on sale at https://www.cebit.com.au/ticket-prices/, including 600 tickets only at early bird rates.

Over 200 expert speakers will deliver keynote presentations, panel discussions, workshops and lightning talks. The six themes that will shape CEBIT this year are: Transformation and disruption, Driving business growth, Data privacy and trust, The future of work, Changing lives with technology, and Applications of emerging technology.

World-class keynote speakers, who will present on the CEBIT Central Stage located within the new-look exhibition, include UK-based Stephen Attenborough, the first full-time employee and now Commercial Director of Virgin Galactic and 2018 Australian of the Year, Michelle Simmons, Scientia Professor of Quantum Physics at the Faculty of Science, University of New South Wales.

More than 100 influential cross-industry representatives formed eight committees – The future of industry, Digital pioneers, Technology gurus, Technology innovators, Startups, Women in tech, Supply chain and Industry 4.0, and FinTech and Finance – to put the program together. They worked alongside the CEBIT team and its new chairperson, former Facebook Australia and New Zealand CEO, Stephen Scheeler, to produce a highly informative curated session program. This will highlight current industry trends and showcase digital case studies from the world’s largest corporations.

“Based on extensive work with our incredible advisory committee members over the last six months, we formulated six content pillars to build the framework of the conference program,” Scheeler says. “This will enable CEBIT to appeal to the new wave of technology buyers and specifiers that now shape the technology eco-system, whilst also appealing to our traditional technology audience.”

CEBIT Australia is again delighted to partner with the NSW Government. Deputy Premier and Minister for Trade and Industry John Barilaro says: “As the innovation capital of Australia and leader in the ICT and startup sectors, Sydney is the right home for major tech conferences like CEBIT. NSW has a $19 billion information, media and telecommunications industry; the largest of any Australian state. We wholeheartedly support the growth and development of the technology sector in Australia.

“To capitalise on NSW's world leading capability in quantum computing, the NSW Government invested $15.4 million in the Sydney Quantum Academy. The SQA will see universities collaborate to advance the quantum industry in NSW, which has applications as far reaching as simulations to predict impacts of climate change, drug discovery and cyber security.

“We know that each technology-based job has been shown to create up to five jobs in other sectors. These are the jobs of the future.”
