The 2021 Tasmanian ICT Conference and Innovation Exhibition is on Friday, Nov 12. TasICT presents a day of informative presentations & engaging exhibits for those in the ICT sector.
Admission is free but everyone must register.
The ICT industry is diverse, so the 2021 Tasmanian ICT Conference covers a wide range of topics. There will be 8 different sessions presented in two simultaneous streams, from 9.30 am. Sessions last 45 – 50 minutes. In the breaks, you can explore the Innovation Exhibition and grab a tea or coffee from the complimentary hot drink stations. The free conference programme helps you to decide which sessions to attend. It is your guide to the topics, presenters, and starting times. Pick one up when you grab your lanyard at the registration desk.
All 2021 Tasmanian ICT Conference attendees can help themselves to a free light lunch. There’s sandwiches, rolls, wraps and fruit to enjoy. The lunch break is a chance to refresh, catch up with colleagues and check out the displays.
The Innovation Exhibition is full of engaging displays. Delegates have a chance to interact with the many ICT service providers and vendors between the sessions or during the lunch break. The displays are set up in the atrium at the C3 Convention Centre. Delegates can access the exhibits all day before the start of the ICT Industry Summit. It’s a great chance to expand your list of industry contacts.
Minister for Science & Technology Michael Ferguson introduces the ICT Industry Summit at 2.00pm. Joining him, a panel of private enterprise and Government Agency leaders. As a result, conference delegates will hear directly from the decision makers. The Summit is sponsored by the Tasmanian Government and is streamed live online. We know not everyone can be there in person, so the Summit can be accessed remotely. Delegates and online participants will also be able to put questions to those on the panels. The ICT Summit has two separate sessions. Firstly, the focus is on the Tasmanian Government’s Digital Transformation initiatives. Then, the second ICT Summit session exploring opportunities evolving in the Space sector. A great way to end the 2021 Tasmanian ICT Conference.
The conference ends at 5.00 pm. The venue is then prepared for the TasICT Gala Dinner. It’s the annual networking event where industry participants connect with their peers. From 6.30pm in the atrium, pre-dinner drinks will be available. Then guests proceed to the Gala Dinner starting at 7.30 pm where they will enjoy a delicious three-course meal and a range of drinks. Many business people invite key clients to the Gala Dinner. Others use the event to treat staff. You might prefer to fill your table with family and friends. TasICT members receive a discount ticket price. To purchase yours, look for the listing on the Industry Events page of the TasICT website. Then follow the link. It promises to be a great night for all. We hope to see you there! The Dining Hall has a maximum capacity, so numbers are limited. Don’t miss our ‘night of nights’.
In addition, there is an extra highlight at this year’s TasICT Gala Dinner. It’s the announcement of the 2021 Pearcey State Entrepreneur of the Year winner. The Pearcey Foundation celebrates ICT sector achievements with annual state and national awards. Our Tasmanian winner is then eligible to take out the National Award announced online on Nov 24. Thanks to the Pearcey Foundation and ACS for choosing to make this announcement at the TasICT Gala Dinner.
This year marks the 9th. annual conference organised by TasICT, and each year we present a relevant & valuable event for the local ICT industry. So please support our big day.
