After last year’s sold-out event, the ACS Queensland Tech Summit will be returning to Brisbane on May 26.

Showcasing the state’s digital opportunities and headlining many of Queensland’s tech leaders, the all-day event will feature more than 30 speakers representing some of the state’s most exciting growth sectors, including the space industry, data analytics and cyber security.

Beau Tydd, ACS Queensland Branch Chair, said, “After last year’s successful summit, it’s great to be running the event again. Over the past year, ACS Queensland has run a series of regional events that have shown how important the tech sector is to the entire state across all industries. There’s a real desire across Queensland to be a part of the digital economy.”

Sponsored by Springfield City Group, the program features two streams; a dedicated IT Leaders stream including a tech leaders fireside chat, cyber security roundup and diversity, along with a Tech Mastery stream covering sessions on making the most of your data, low code development and games development.

Springfield City Group Deputy Chairman Bob Sharpless said, “Springfield City Group is proud to partner with a summit that brings together so many technology leaders. Greater Springfield’s growth over 30 years has been underpinned by the embrace of technology and innovation to develop a city like no other in Australia. Information technology is one of the key pillars in our transformation.”

The summit’s technical stream has been specifically designed to support early career tech professionals and budding emerging tech professionals. Students are invited to attend the summit at the cost-price discounted members’ rates to meet with potential future employers.

Early bird registration for the event has opened and includes full-day attendance, admittance to all sessions, barista-made coffee on arrival, morning tea and lunch, and post-event networking drinks.
