About the event

A forum of collaboration, discussion and industry disruption

​Are you fully embracing the power of digitalization? The World Economic Forum says that in the next two years, 70 million jobs will be displaced by robotics and artificial intelligence – but at the same time there will be a net gain of 50 million new jobs. Never before has the world seen such an upheaval and rapid change. But are you ready for this?

After sell-out events in Melbourne and Sydney over the last three years, for the first time we are bringing this critical industry event to Brisbane. The focus will be on smart infrastructure, embracing the fourth industrial revolution and the role of technology and digitalization in Australia’s energy transition.

A stellar line up on local and international expert speakers and exhibitors will deliver thought provoking presentations and workshops on a range of relevant topics and share their valuable insights. For example, Dr Gerhard Kress from Germany will explain how he uses advanced data analytics to create an entirely new business model for the rail industry where he is able to guarantee train availability at 99.9% of the time in places like Moscow and Madrid. Michelle Price, who leads Australia’s AustCyber (cyber security growth centre) will share her thoughts on cyber security as an opportunity rather than just a threat. And Professor Bronwyn Fox along with leading universities across Australia will explain how a new network of Industry 4.0 test laboratories will support Australian businesses in the transition to the fourth industrial revolution.
