The one guaranteed constant in technology is change and it's adoption is accelerating

We are now seeing a Convergence bringing together separate industries like; IT, telecoms, electronics, manufacturing, media, healthcare, entertainment and education with a blurring of lines as they become one ecosystem.

To explore this we have created a series of events where a diverse group of top industry professionals come together to hear insights from world class speakers, technology brands and thought leaders. Convergence is equal parts conference trade show and networking.

Convergence positions both Sydney and Singapore as hubs for this world changing technical innovation and creativity.

Our next event focuses on:

  • Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality (VR / AR)
  • Wearable Technology & Smart Devices
  • The Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Robotics & Machine Learning (Ai / M2M)
