In 2018, integration, collaboration and dialogue across and between born-digital startups and large enterprise is a significant theme for the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) in Victoria.

The 2018 Victoria Ministerial Forum will explore the theme of "The Innovation Ecosystem: Victorian Opportunities".

Guest speaker, the Minister for Trade and Investment, Innovation and the Digital Economy, Philip Dalidakis will join CEO of LaunchVic, Dr. Kate Cornick to discuss collaboration and sharing between startups and enterprises, and how Victoria is primed for these interactions to foster and grow to unlock new and broader productivity and social benefits.

A Global Tech business leader will add perspective on Victoria as Australia’s Tech Capital, its ecosystem and the role of businesses of all sizes to contribute to its continued growth.

The annual AIIA Victoria Ministerial Forum promises to offer excellent relationship development and networking opportunities.

Public sector, digital technology, C suite and industry executives across agencies, as well as ICT industry leaders are encouraged to attend this forum.
