Media release | 16 May 2017

The NSW Government will use its partnership with the Asia Pacific’s biggest business technology expo CeBIT Australia (23-25 May) to showcase the diversity of the state's technology sector, target international investment, and promote its support for innovative startups and fast growing SMES.

The NSW Government’s presence at CeBIT Australia will demonstrate the breadth of innovation on offer across the technology sector in Sydney and country areas of NSW.

CeBIT Australia is the Asia Pacific’s biggest business-to-business technology exhibition and conference. It will attract more than 15,000 global technology professionals across industry, SMEs, government and startup sectors.

Visitors to CeBIT are invited to visit the NSW Government stand at the International Convention Centre at Darling Harbour to meet our friendly team and be briefed on the latest opportunities on offer in our technology sector.

The NSW stand will have on display unique technologies and services from across our state’s education, agriculture, logistics, events, recruitment, traffic management and university sectors as well as information on government support services.

As well as seven innovative companies, teams from the Department of Industry and Department of Finance, Services and Innovation will be available on the stand.

The NSW Government-backed Jobs for NSW will also be on the stand to promote its range of support for startups and fast-growing SMEs.

Also, 12 of the state's best startups supported by Jobs for NSW will be on display in the StartUp Zone at CeBIT.

With 34 countries represented across exhibitors and delegates at CeBIT as well as seven international pavilions, NSW will be promoted globally as Australia’s leading technology business investment and tourism destination.
