The digital world can be very complex and challenging for consumers to navigate. As part of the National Year of Digital Inclusion, the ACCANect Conference will focus on how to empower consumers to get and stay connected to the phone and broadband services they need. This relates directly to ACCAN’s goal of ensuring that communications services are available, affordable and accessible for all Australians.

We invite you to attend the ACCANect Conference
on 14-15 September 2016, Sydney

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

As well as debates and discussion, ACCANect will provide practical tools for those attending to improve their own connectivity. We will look at some of the latest research as well as successful initiatives both here and overseas to promote and improve connectivity.

  • How to ensure we bring everyone along as the government shifts to online service delivery

  • How to assist consumers in making good choices in a competitive market place

  • Options for keeping low-income consumers connected

  • How small businesses can get ahead by improving their digital literacy

  • Ways to keep safe and protect privacy in a highly connected world

  • Options for getting connected in underserved areas and mobile black spots

  • How to choose NBN services – ACCAN will be launching a consumer guide

  • How connectivity enables better accessibility

  • The A-Z of the internet of things and wearable devices

The conference will allow participants - Government, telcos, regulators and content producers - to hear first-hand accounts on the realities consumers face in staying connected.
