Space, Robotics and… Saunas? What To Expect At This Year’s Tech Conference

Hear about our Tech Conference from returning Creative Director Robert Tercek.

Five-day technology event Hybrid World Adelaide is back for 2018, and we can reveal the first of our Tech Conference speakers. Curated by award-winning author and digital pioneer Robert Tercek, you’ll hear from experts in artificial intelligence, robotics, augmented biology, and space at the Adelaide Convention Centre on 23 – 24 July.

The conference will explore the future of industries and feature an array of local and international thought leaders, including international business leader, award-winning speaker and author of ‘The Finnish Miracle’ André Noël Chaker. André will present a keynote examining what Australia can learn from innovative Finland, as well as how Santa and saunas (yes, you heard that right) make up the formula for success in life and business.

You’ll also hear from Professor Genevieve Bell, a leading technologist and former South Australian Thinker In Residence; the founder of Robogals Global and 2012 Young Australian of the Year, Marita Cheng; and ‘Dr. Space Junk’ and Flinders University space archaeologist Dr. Alice Gorman. Founder of Neumann Space Dr. Patrick ‘Paddy’ Neumann and returning speaker Dr. Phillip Alvelda also join the impressive lineup. And there’s more to come!
