Described as “Australasia’s SXSW” and as “Woodstock for digital natives”, over the course of nine years Pause Fest (Pause) has grown to welcome 15,000 movers, shakers and creative change-makers.
Pause Fest founder George Hedon – an accomplished designer with an entrepreneurial streak – saw an opportunity to bring together this inspired new breed of thinkers, makers and doers for an annual, creativity-infused event.
George wanted to inject global innovation and excitement into Australia’s local tech culture. The goal was to create a new home for collaboration, ideas, relationships and, most importantly, for the future to take shape.
Today, Pause draws global luminaries from a huge range of industries and is the leading conference and festival of its kind in the world.
