Now in it’s 6th year,  Pause Fest has aspired to bring together the thinkers of the future in a bid to achieve a creative collaboration that properly showcases new products, services and digital creations.

Pause’s founder George Hedon saw an opportunity to start bringing together a new breed of thinkers and doers to Melbourne, so speakers and attendees could benefit from great quality content from all over the world.

This year the festival will focus on the disturbance digital transformations are having on consumer behaviour and business operations;  with 3 days of the event looking at the key cornerstones of start-up – tech, business and ultimately creative.

Pause Fest encourages you to go along and immerse yourselves in the presentations, discussions and thoughts of some of the best creative minds in the industry. With of course the opportunity to ask questions…

As well as the presentations, the Pause’s Escape Room gives you access to interactive installations and screens, and the Start-up Expo with over 20 Public and Partner program events.

With conference sessions across Creative, Tech and Business, there is plenty happening over the whole week with speakers from all over the world and Australia including:

Adrina Gascoigne – Girls In Tech
Jeff Woods – The Grid
Alice Kimberly – Vice, Media Australia
Joanne L Batstone – IBM Research Australia
