Three Terrific Aussie Tech Conferences For 2020

The wide open spaces of Australia represent some of the world’s last true wildernesses and the nation’s unique terrain and nature make it truly special.

But these geographical challenges also mean that it’s also one of the countries that benefits most from technology’s capacity to boost connectivity and democratize opportunity in every aspect of life.

And according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the land Down Under is definitely switched on when it comes to digital opportunities – latest figures show that 59 per cent of businesses in the retail trade have a web presence, 56 per cent have a social media presence and 37 per cent of businesses receive orders via the internet, generating an annual income of $394 billion.

So whether you work in the tech and digi sector in Australia or are considering spending some time there scoping out business opportunities, you might be keeping an eye open for networking opportunities this coming year.

With that in mind, here are three terrific Aussie tech conferences for 2020.

1. International Conference on AI, Sydney

If you’re excited about the possibilities Artificial Intelligence unlocks in terms of making everyday life easier and business more efficient, then grab a seat at the International Conference on AI at the Holiday Inn Potts Point, Sydney, between 14-15 March 2020.

Keynote speakers and delegates will also be discussing exciting topics like software engineering, information technology and applied sciences – find out more at 10times.com.

Top Tip: book an early-bird room at Holiday Inn Potts Point to avoid disappointment – no one wants a long walk to the conference each day from a far flung hotel.

2. CC Grid 2020, Melbourne

Are you operating at the cutting edge of cluster, cloud and internet computing, as a research academic, commercial operator or perhaps both?

Then you’ll be fascinated by the headlines talks, workshops and technical presentations at the 20th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on the aforementioned disciplines on May 11-14 in Melbourne – everything from Big Data to the Internet of Things will be picked apart and analysed and more information can be gleaned at couldbus.org.

Top tip: slake your thirst at Melbourne’s best craft beer bars after a busy day’s brainwork – and be sure to invite new connections too.

3. ANZSC 2020, Gold Coast

When crunching numbers floats your boat, there’s nothing better than mixing and mingling with fellow stats obsessives in a big room close to beautiful beaches.

And that’s exactly what you can do at the Australia and New Zealand Statistical Conference (ANZSC) 2020 at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre between 6-10 July 2020. Operated jointly by the Statistical Society of Australia, the New Zealand Statistical Association, the International Institute of Business Analysis and the Australian Conference on Teaching Statistics, this is an enlightening opportunity not to be missed.

Top tip: reserve airport parking across Australia at Looking4.com when travelling to your airport by car – it ensures a calm pre-flight experience.

So ends our list, but please share your own Australian IT conference tips in the comments section.
