CEBIT Australia program announced – 100 industry leaders help shape new look event


A rebranded and reimagined CEBIT Australia has just launched the first section of their 2019 program with a focus on the key digital transformation issues that are facing businesses as they seek to innovate and grow. Over 200 expert speakers will deliver keynote presentations, panel discussions, workshops, sessions, and lightening talks at Asia Pacific’s largest business technology conference and exhibition.

To be held from October 29-31 at Sydney’s International Convention Centre, tickets are now on sale at

World-class keynote speakers, who will present on the CEBIT Central Stage located within the new-look exhibition, include UK-based Stephen Attenborough, employee number one and now Commercial Director of Virgin Galactic, and the 2018 Australian of the Year, Michelle Simmons, Scientia Professor of Quantum Physics at the Faculty of Science, University of New South Wales.

More than 100 influential cross-industry representatives from eight committee areas – The future of Industry, Digital Pioneers, Technology Gurus, Technology Innovators, Start-ups, Women in Tech, Supply Chain & Industry 4.0 and FinTech & Finance – have worked alongside the CEBIT team and its new Chairman, ex Facebook ANZ CEO, Stephen Scheeler, to produce a highly informative curated program. This will highlight current industry trends and showcase digital case studies from the world’s largest corporations.

Harvey Stockbridge, Managing Director of CEBIT organisers Hannover Fairs, explains the concept for this year’s content. “Based on extensive work with our incredible Advisory Committee members over the last six months, we formulated six content pillars to build the framework of the conference content. These include the areas of transformation and disruption, business growth, data privacy and trust, the future of work, changing lives with technology, and the application of emerging technology.

“This will enable CEBIT to appeal to the new wave of technology buyers and specifiers that now shape the technology eco-system, whilst also appealing to our traditional technology audience.”

The conference program will feature over 200 speakers including Ilan Frank, Director of Product, Enterprise, Slack, Mikko Hypponen, Chief Research Officer of F-Secure and James Gilbert, APAC Marketing Director, HubSpot.

CEBIT Australia is again delighted to partner with the NSW Government. Deputy Premier and Minister for Trade and Industry, John Barilaro, said CEBIT has always played an important role in positioning NSW as the leading destination for technology businesses in the Asia Pacific region.

“CEBIT Australia allows our companies to sell their products and services while promoting NSW as an international investment location,” he said. “Sydney is the right home for major tech conferences like CEBIT as Australia’s leader in the information and communication technology (ICT) and startup sectors.

“Through the NSW Government’s support of CEBIT, we are backing the growth and development of our technology industry to grow future businesses and jobs in our digital economy.”
