  • Mon 18 March, 8:00am - 5:00pm

  • Tue 19 March, 9:00am - 3:30pm

SMEs, industry, academic, and government stakeholders along with investors, venture capitalists, and startups meet at the FAIR to discover today’s opportunities in an immersive, educational experience. The FAIR is a groundbreaking event uniting all technologies under one roof for the first time. Collaboratively discussing ethical and responsible tech use, considering risk, compliance and legislation, experiencing the array of possibilities for today’s SME adoption, delivering a holistic approach to Australia's tech strategy, will result in a collaborative outcome to position Australia as a global tech leader. Amidst countless fragmented tech events causing information overload, the FAIR demystifies current tech, empowering businesses to thrive and progress now by harnessing the tech available today. A White Paper will result from the FAIR’s discussions, guiding imminent policy reform, emphasising economic prosperity and sustainability, and positioning Australia as a leading tech adopter.
