TasICT is the peak industry body for the Information, Communication and Technology (ICT) industries and the leading advocacy and policy group in Tasmania.

TasICT is a non-profit organisation supporting more than 150 members across the State by engaging with the industry, consumers and government as well as national and international partners. The industry body plays a pivotal role in assisting government to shape future ICT policy and ensures the collective voice of our growing member base is heard.

The goal of TasICT is to support the state’s ICT industry evolve around long-term strategic initiatives to encourage investment which transitions to skills, jobs and further investment across all sectors.

This is achieved through hosting more than a dozen business development and networking events for industry annually, managing a number of programs such as Generations and Its Your Career that educate those through 7-12 in STEM as well as bridging the study to employment gap with TasTAFE student placements.

The annual TasICT Conference is a highlight for those looking to transition into the ICT industry and businesses seeking growth through a greater use of technology.
