ACCANect 2017: Your place in the connected world

Digital technology has transformed consumer experiences around the world. Consumers can buy products, access information, and communicate with people anywhere in the world with just the touch of a button. We are told that soon everything will be connected so the theme of this year’s ACCANect is ‘Your place in the connected world’.

We invite you to attend the ACCANect Conference
on 20-21 September 2017, Sydney

This “always on”, always connected world raises some big questions for consumers. Is our personal information safe online? Do we know what data is being collected about us and are we happy with how it is being used or shared? How do new services make decisions about us and are they fair? How can we make sure everyone can access an open internet, as well as benefit from the convenience, choice and lower prices?

ACCANect will be an opportunity for consumers, providers and government representatives to get up to speed on what’s available now, what’s over the horizon and what the benefits and challenges are going forward. 

As well as debate and discussion, ACCANect will provide practical tools for those attending to navigate the connected world. We will look at the latest research as well as successful initiatives both here and overseas to promote and improve connectivity.

Who will be attending

The conference will allow participants – government, telcos, regulators and content producers – to hear first-hand accounts on the realities consumers face in staying connected. Last year’s conference attracted attendees from overseas, consumer groups, industry, government and regulators, as well as mainstream media.
