iAwards Winners and Sponsors TasICT iAwards 2015 with Minister Ferguson
Alderman Daniel Hulme, Key Note Speaker Jarrah Kammoora, Ange Collis and Leader of the Opposition Bryan Green - 2015 iAwards
Then Tasmanian Premier, Lara Giddings, with award winner, Chris Rasmussen of Synataq, at the 2013 Tasmanian ICT Awards.
TASICT hosts the annual iAwards in Tasmania. The iAwards honour companies at the cutting edge of technology innovation and recognise the achievements of home-grown Australian innovators.
The iAwards replaced the old Tasmanian ICT awards that were traditionally held in November.
Winners of the Tasmanian iAwards go through to the national iAwards finals against winners from other States and Territories. National winners can then progress through to the Asia Pacific ICT Alliance (APICTA) Awards.
The arrangement is a product of TasICT's new relationship with its national equivalent, the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA).
The 2015 iAwards was held on Friday July 10 in the Derwent Room at Wrest Point Convention Centre.

ICT Policy Forum
TasICT members and supporters were invited to participate in a Labor policy forum with David Bartlett on April 12 2016.
Former Tasmanian Premier, David Bartlett, is considered as many as Australia's first ICT Premier. He was the first Australian political leader to utilise Twitter and Facebook for campaigning, took on the Tasmanian ICT and education portfolios and was largely responsible for Tasmania being the first State in Australia to receive the NBN.
At the event he facilitated a Labor policy discussion about the future of our sector.
The event was co-hosted with the Australian Labor Party (Tasmania).
Also in attendance were Opposition Leader, Bryan Green MP; Shadow Treasurer, Scott Bacon MP; Shadow Minister for ICT, Madeleine Ogilvie MP.
