Watch live keynote stream: Google Cloud Summit 2017 Sydney, 13 September


Claiming “the future of cloud is now”, Google is hosting its Cloud Summit 2017 in Sydney, and is offering live streams of the keynote presentation and demos as they happen – and hopes you’ll register. 

If you’re unable to make Google’s Cloud Summit 2017 in Sydney in person, then you’ve always got the opportunity to attend at least the keynote, virtually.

Google is encouraging early registrations for the live stream here.

The company promises its “line-up of Global Google Executives will inspire you on topics including":

  • Changing the way you work to drive productivity. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Enable an open culture that fosters innovation.
  • Getting into the business of delivering IT which differentiates you. Cost effectively, reliably, with performance and trust.
  • Investing in the technologies that enable intimacy, insight, innovation and engagement with your customers.

Google notes its keynote “will also be joined onstage by those who are embracing the cloud in new and innovative ways right here in Australia and New Zealand”, and that the best way to “gain these valuable insights” is to reserve your spot for the live stream “early".

Clicking over to the link above takes us to the registration page, where there’s more detail on the event itself, and some of the speakers.

Google has listed three main attention grabbers in the hope you’ll press the registration button and then attend the event.

These are:


What was once considered impossible is now being rewritten. Innovation is accelerating because of what cloud can already do – it’s now your imagination that will drive what’s next.


Engage with the foremost minds leading the cloud revolution and learn how the modern enterprise is benefiting from the latest in cloud technology in unprecedented ways.


Join our online community of developers, tech advocates, enterprise partners, and global customers to build for tomorrow.

The keynote live stream starts at 8.45am and goes until 10.30am. Whether any more of the summit is streamed isn’t clear, it just appears to be the keynote at this stage.

Rick Harshman

Paul Strong
Technical Director, Office of the CTO

Greg DeMichillie
Director, Product Management, Office of the CTO

Vanessa Cho
