AB+F is a media partner of CEBIT. Over 200 expert speakers will deliver keynote presentations, panel discussions, workshops, sessions, and lightning talks at Asia Pacific’s largest business technology conference and exhibition during 29 – 31 October

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, world-renowned cybercrime expert Mikko Hypponen from F-Secure, and 2018 Australian of the Year, Michelle Simmons, Scientia Professor of Quantum Physics at the Faculty of Science, University of New South Wales.

The six themes that will shape CEBIT this year will be: transformation and disruption; driving business growth; data privacy and trust; the future of work; changing lives with technology; and applications of emerging technology.

Stephen Scheeler, chair of CEBIT Australia 2019, 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 program. 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.”

CEBIT Australia will again team up with the NSW Government. 

“NSW has a $19 billion information, media and telecommunications industry; the largest of any Australian state,” Deputy Premier and Minister for Trade and Industry, John Barilaro, said "

“As the innovation capital of Australia and leader in the ICT and startup sectors, Sydney is the right home for major tech conferences like CEBIT.”
