CeBIT Australia, Asia Pacific’s epicentre for executive interaction, is growing in influence in 2010, assembling the region’s most comprehensive line-up of corporate and government speakers.
Australia’s ICT industry is worth an estimated $123 billion, and in 2010 it is more vibrant than ever before with major initiatives underway including the Federal Government’s $43 billion investment in the National Broadband Network, and the Australian Tax Office’s $725 million systems overhaul.
As the annual gathering place for a complete spectrum of decision-makers across industry, commerce and services, CeBIT Australia facilitates invaluable dialogues between industry and government, securing its place at the centre of these key developments.
With recent federal government announcements there has never been a more important time to contribute to the debate of Australia's new healthcare system. CeBIT’s new eHealth offerings including a dedicated exhibition space, conference and 4 topical workshops will provide a timely platform for input from healthcare providers and the wider community into Government plans for a better healthcare system.
This year NBN Co, Chief Executive Officer, Mike Quigley, will be using CeBIT’s National Broadband Network Conference as a platform to discuss the progress of the NBN and outline the activities of NBN Co, the company charged with delivering on the Australian Federal Government’s network mandate.
The CeBIT National Broadband Network Conference is scheduled for the first time this year, as CeBIT Australia continues to link government and business to highlight business opportunities created from the largest infrastructure project ever undertaken in Australia.
Also debuting in 2010 is CeBIT’s Executive Briefing Conference, an invaluable forum, enabling a direct dialogue between C-levels and strategists across the complete spectrum of public and private sectors. This conference will offer expert insights and case studies to provide organisations with the innovative strategies to push their business ahead of the curve, and the knowledge to implement them with confidence, today.
These new offerings and the popular existing conference portfolio will feature industry-leading speakers hand-picked for their progressive insights and case-studies.
The all-star speaking faculty includes business Transformation experts: CTO of Amazon Web Services, Dr Werner Vogels; Chairman of Investec, David Gonski AC; VP of Product Development ResMed, Geoff Neilson; Managing Director of Energy Australia, George Maltabrow; CEO of Downer EDI Retail, Dr Guy Wannop and many more.
As the region’s must-attend event for C-Level interaction, CeBIT Australia welcomes 37,000 delegates, exhibitors and visitors seeking advance recognition of the latest innovations and business transformation strategies from 550 industry-leading companies. The floor is divided into 16 exhibition categories highlighting the latest insights and innovations of industry leaders HP, IBM, Motorola, Optus, SAP, Altech Computers, and many more.
This knowledge-rich, how-to environment extends beyond the show floor with key government and policy makers sharing their case study insights across dozens of the key topics effecting government, industry, commerce and services today.
Hannover Fairs Australia Managing Director Jackie Taranto said that businesses and government have realised that technology is a key to solving so many of the problems that face business and individuals in times of challenge.
“The entire week surrounding CeBIT each May has rapidly evolved to become the peak gathering of the movers, shakers and contenders of an economic sector on which all segments of industry depend for continued growth,” she said.
The Australian Trade Commission has described the local ICT industry as, “one of the fastest growing and most innovative sectors of the Australian economy.” As the largest business and ICT event in the Asia Pacific region, CeBIT Australia is the must-attend event for 2010.
