FutureFest celebrates digital future

Tasmania’s future as a digital state will be front and centre when the inaugural FutureFest kicks off. The festival is a week-long celebration showcasing technology in Tasmania – both the future potential and the capabilities that already exist here. The digital extravaganza is being organised by TasICT and will feature 65 different events to highlight technological developments across the state. FutureFest 2018 includes a Young IT conference, workshops, and talks from experts covering topics from cyber security to virtual reality. Program manager, Katy Cooper, told The Examiner that FutureFest was aimed at four key audiences: “It is for students who are interested in technology, the start-up community, corporate IT and technology firms, and any Tasmanian business that want to understand technology better.” TasICT is keen to emphasise that Tasmania has enormous potential as a niche player in this sector. FutureFest 2018 will be held from October 15-19 at various locations in Hobart and Launceston.
