Event to be held at Robyn’s Nest Five-star Hotel on the beautiful Merimbula Lake – please speak to the Robyn’s Nest team for preferential overnight rates for conference attendees

Discuss the unique challenges of technology in regional Australia

In the modern era, technology decisions can be ‘make or break’ for many companies and organisations. With lower numbers of industry peers with whom to share ideas and keep abreast of technology innovations, rural and regional businesses face additional challenges in choosing the best technology solutions for them. This forum seeks to foster greater networking opportunities and connectedness between regional technology decision-makers.

CIOs, CFOs, CEOs, Department Heads, Senior Engineers, Business Analysts Welcome!

*Includes Lunch
