Industry Program

The Hybrid World Adelaide (HWA) LAB is a space for new projects, products and plans that use digital technology to solve real world problems. If you have an idea, we want to hear from you.

The HWA Lab gives local and international start-ups and established companies the opportunity to develop their projects with the help of world-class experts. Over two days, the lab will bring together applicants and mentors to share ideas and bring them to reality. $85,000 in State Government grants are available to participants who make it to the final round of intense shortlisting.


The HWA Conference explores automation, space and medical technology are expanding what we think is possible. What will your business, industry or job look like in 10 years? What about 20 years, or beyond that? The digital world is changing the problems we face – and solutions we use – in everyday life.

You’re invited to join digital pioneer and Hybrid World Adelaide Creative Director for the Industry events, Robert Tercek, and speakers from across the globe to explore the future.
