Building on the success of the 2020 festival, Something Digital 2021 will again run as a multi-day, multi-venue, hybrid festival.

Whether we need our organisations to be more efficient, increase ROI, create better customer experiences or design new products and services, an understanding of how to leverage digital innovation and emerging technology is paramount.

On the first day of the festival we will run one (or two) intimate invite-only roundtables which will bring together participants from all corners of QLD's Digital Innovation ecosystem to foster growth and thought leadership.

Roundtables will also provide the opportunity to bring together different members of our community to solve challenges that currently exist and amplify the solutions and activities which are already in play in the market.

Curated Program

In 2021, the curated program will run over two days, giving us the opportunity to dive deep into those the most important areas of digital innovation.

The In-Person activations will run in multiple venues across Brisbane, enabling our digital community to meet, engage and collaborate.

In-person attendees will again be able to benefit from masterclasses, networking drinks, SD crossover events and other goodness we have yet to imagine.

The Online experience will run via our virtual hub with content from the main stage streamed live.

Both In-Person and Online tickets are now available!

Open Studios

On the final day of the festival, local Brisbane businesses have the opportunity to throw open their doors to the wider community, showcasing their projects, services and digital aptitude.

Run as short, sharp and punchy sessions ... we call these events 'Open Studios'.

Open Studios are free to attend and do not require a Something Digital ticket. In 2021 we expect our Open Studios to again be a mix of online and in person events.  
The future of work is changing faster now than ever before. With the latest reports finding that Gen Z are likely to change careers every seven years, it is essential that we prepare them with the 21st century skills necessary to thrive in the workforce of the future.

As creators of the digital economy it is our responsibility to nurture the young people who will shape tomorrow's digital ecosystem.

Run in partnership with BOP Industries, the Something School will give high school students from across Brisbane the opportunity to join us for an immersive and inspirational day focused on all things digital and innovation.
