Tasmania is set to go back to the future in 2019, after the success of last week’s inaugural FutureFest.
The statewide series of events finished on Friday with a TasICT conference, featuring presentations from Hydro Tasmania and Tassal.
TasICT chief executive Phil Pyke said it was a fitting conclusion to the week.
“The conference itself was about business transformation,” he said.
“We had Tassal present a case study on its move to centralised fish feeding, while Hydro spoke about cloud computing.”
FutureFest even managed to garner international attention, with an American team from Venture Catalysts, Cataliize, coming down to take part in the festivities.
Mr Pyke said the interest was a coup for TasICT.
“From our perspective, we can look at developing pathways to export markets,” he said.
“We will definitely be back again in 2019.
“The project team behind FutureFest has put a lot of effort in, and there has been an overall audience of more than 1200.”
