CEBIT Australia releases initial 2019 program

CEBIT Australia has released the first part of its 2019 program, revealing six key themes and bringing the total number of speakers so far to 64.

The event — running 29–31 October at Sydney’s International Convention Centre — is set to focus on digital transformation and business growth and innovation. Data privacy and trust, the future of work, applications of emerging technology and ways technology is changing lives will also be spotlighted at the conference.

CEBIT Australia Chairperson and former Facebook CEO ANZ Stephen Scheeler said these concepts “will enable CEBIT to appeal to the new wave of technology buyers and specifiers that now shape the technology ecosystem, while also appealing to our traditional technology audience”.

The line-up so far includes Virgin Galactic’s Commercial Director, Stephen Attenborough; 2018 Australian of the Year and Scientia Professor of Quantum Physics at the University of New South Wales’ Faculty of Science, Michelle Simmons; the Chief Research Officer of F-Secure, Mikko Hyppone;, Data61 CEO Adrian Turner; and Slack’s Director of Product, Enterprise, Ilan Frank.

CEBIT expects to name over 200 speakers by the time the final program is released.
