PHOTO GALLERY: Tech Leaders Forum 2017

22 Mar 2017

The 2017 Tech Leaders Forum recently took place in Sydney bringing together IT leaders and vendors from throughout Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ).

The event was a great success, as it enabled vendors to connect with media in forthright, one-on-one sessions. This in addition to keynotes from pivotal government MPs related to IT and digital transformation, and networking operations throughout the three days of the event.

And of course, you can't forget the dinner party, which this year had a 1920's gangster theme.

"For technology vendors and suppliers, Tech Leaders Forum is time-effective, cost-effective and quite frankly gives you the kind of access to media that is quite possibly impossible to replicate regardless of your budgets," says Media Connect CEO, Phil Sims.

"Possibly the best testimony to how well Tech Leaders works is that so many journalists and technology companies come back to the event, year-on-year."

This year’s list of leaders includes speakers from NEC Laboratories, Concur, MyNetFone, Epicon, Pronto,  Ansible and Australian government MPs in the tech industry.
