Pressing ‘Play’ on Pause Fest’s premier Melbourne ‘creative tech conference’


Pause Fest and Melbourne’s Federation Square are pressing play on announcing the upcoming ‘Pause Fest’ creative tech conference in Melbourne, being held on 8 to 14 February 2016.

Pause Fest says it is ‘the innovative and forward thinking event’ being held ‘in partnership with Fed Square.’

The event is ‘bringing together some of the most influential and innovative experts from the creative, tech and business space for a week-long convention this February.’

And, as part of Fed Square’s collaboration with Pause Fest, featured will be ‘a cutting edge digital event – Digital Publics – as a feature event within the festival’s calendar.’

During the week of 8 to 14 February, we are told that ‘business leaders, creatives, forward thinkers and students will be able to purchase tickets, bear witness to cutting edge discussions and obtain intel on ground breaking concepts within the digital hemisphere.’

It’s not some unknown new event either, but proudly in its 6th successful year, with Pause Fest’s organisers promising the event ‘will engage and educate an audience of up to 12,000 with a week-long event at the heart of Melbourne, Fed Square.’

Pause Fest founder George Hedon hopes to create ‘a true sense of community through collaboration with some of the world’s most innovative and forward thinking leaders,’ with Hedon promising that Pause Fest will include the “world’s best talent, thought leaders and advocates who will provide compelling speeches that will inspire attendees to encourage a wave of innovation that only the collision of different mind-set skills can provide.”

Forming part of this year’s festival is the aforementioned Digital Publics, which is ‘a collaboration presented by Fed Square and Pause Fest and produced by UTV, that will investigate how tech and digital innovations are bringing together public stakeholders and redefining engagement within the public space.’

We are told that ‘business leaders and creatives alike will have the opportunity to engage with some of the forefathers of public engagement, urban screens and place making as the digital age is explored via a panel discussion, complete with visuals.’

With 3 days of the festival dedicated to ‘ticketed seminar discussions, presentations and panels on Creative, Tech and Business, Pause Fest hopes to help businesses recognise the importance of these elements and enable them to evolve and stay on top of the game in the digital age.’

Taking every last opportunity to play up Pause Fest is a must-attend digital event, its organisers say Pause Fest ‘is an offering every business leader will want their staff and teams to attend to sharpen their potential and push their own professional boundaries! It’s a must.’
