Pause Fest has been described as “Australasia’s SXSW” and as “Woodstock for digital natives” (shucks!). In 2018, we welcomed over 400 startups, 1200 businesses and over 35 media outlets from across Australia. In 2019, we’ll welcome even more.
We may have built Pause from the ground up, but at Pause 2019, you’ll have access to the best of the best from the top down – you get access today to the people who will transform you tomorrow. Whoever you are and whatever you do – senior, junior, intern, janitor – the potential for professional growth at Pause 2019 is utterly unprecedented.
Hear from our incredible line up of speakers, including:
- Airbnb experience design manager Julia Khusainova
- Youtube UX director Paolo Malabuyo
- JWT creative innovation director Emma Chiu
- CISCO CHILL founder and senior director Kate O’Keefe
- Atlassian head of R&D Dominic Price
For our ninth incarnation, we’ve shaken things up a bit. We’ve changed our ticketing structure to try and maximise the opportunities for you, our valued Pause attendees, to network. By doing this, you’ll have more time to rub shoulders with the kind of industry-shattering leaders that could totally change your career trajectory.
