What you can expect to see at Telstra Vantage™ On Tour South Australia 2019

What is Telstra Vantage On Tour?

Every year Telstra hosts Telstra Vantage, one of the biggest technology shows in the country. It showcases some of the latest and greatest technology from many of Telstra’s technology partners, including Calibre One. This year, Telstra Vantage is heading out on tour to convention centres across the country – so customers in each state have an opportunity to attend and get exposed to different technologies.

 

Who should attend Telstra Vantage On Tour?

Telstra Vantage On Tour is targeted at business, enterprise, not for profit and government organisations. It typically focuses on organisations with 20+ staff from all industry sectors.

 

Where is Telstra Vantage On Tour held?

This Year Telstra Vantage will be touring Perth, Adelaide and Brisbane. Event dates and locations are:

2 May 2019 – Perth Convention & Exhibition Centre
8 May 2019 – Adelaide Convention Centre
22 May 2019 – Royal International Convention Centre, Brisbane

 

Why should you attend Telstra Vantage On Tour 2019?

Attendees are given the opportunity to be exposed to technology that may help them streamline processes or communication, enable them to reach new markets, find solutions to challenging problems and network with other businesses.

At last year’s Telstra Vantage show, we were exposed to many different 5G applications in development from healthcare to manufacturing, and we saw how the new 5G network will change the face of business and government as we know it today. We were shown new types of robots used in manufacturing and health that were used alongside humans to significantly improve output. We were exposed to both virtual and augmented reality, blended with business application in the world of sports coaching and science in the development of our future athletes.

This year we are hoping that customers will get further exposure to our changing technological world and how Telstra and Calibre One, along with all our partners, can help in solving potential challenges you may have.

You can expect to leave this event energised, inspired and educated on the new technology that will best serve your business and streamline your processes.

 

What to expect from this year’s event

This year’s event will showcase the latest innovations in the technology expo, alongside a program of thought-provoking speakers – all chosen to celebrate how technology can help us thrive.

And because each event is tailored to each state, you’ll get insights into local trends and industry challenges. Plus you can network with peers and experts from Telstra and our partners – all under one roof.
