Women in Tech. Fest 2018 in a nutshell….

Evolving the success of the Women in Tech. conference series, this re-imagined concept focusses on content, experience, engagement, interaction, inspiration, innovation and networking. You’re not just sitting around a conference room, you’re in power talks, roundtables by the pool, fast sprint workshops, start-up investor pitching competitions and much, much more…

You’ll be hanging out with Australia’s most successful tech founders, leaders and role models from diverse industries and skill sets covering devops, systems, digital, IT, ICT and sales, in an inclusive and supportive environment. And did we mention it’s on the Gold Coast?!

“I am proud to have been involved with the Women in Tech. conference since its inaugural year. I love its supportive yet inspirational vibe, and I think the networking and collaboration opportunities it offers women are fantastic.” Rachel Byrne, Product Owner, Aged Care Digital Journey, BUPA Aged Care
