Networking is a HUGE part of why many of us attend events, so we’ve made we built networking into the heart of Something Digital.


In between our incredible on-stage content, there’s plenty of time to meet and catch up with other attendees –  whether it’s over a bite to eat, whilst getting your much needed caffiene fix, in our structured networking activities, or whilst winding down with end of day drinks.

Speed Networking.

Serendipitous networking is grand… those magical encounters that just happen. But sometimes we all need a bit of structure to help us meet new people. 


On both Tuesday and Wednesday morning (during the first break), you will have the opportunity to participate in quick fire speed networking to meet, greet, and start the conversation. All spurred on by our very loud taxi horn!

Keynote Connections.

Collaboration is a big goal for Something Digital, which is why we created keynote connections, a series of closed meeting with each of our international headliners, held in the green room of The Tivoli.


The idea is to bring together a small group, open channels of communication and hopefully create Something Great further down the line.


These meetings are largely invite only, however if you are super keen to meet one of our keynotes in particular, drop us a line and tell us a bit about yourself and why you would love to be there.

Happy Hour + Networking Drinks.

Tuesday Happy Hour powered by JDP: Our humans deserves to be celebrated! Join us at the end of Day One as we celebrate with drinks. The bar tab has been set and all attendees are invited – all you have to do is turn up, grab a drink and get to networking!

Wednesday Networking Drinks:
Bringing together the whole crew, the official Something Fest drinks are strategically placed right in the middle of the Something Fest week. All attendees from across the entire week’s activation are invited to the Something Digital HQ, The Tivoli, for a drink and a catch up. 

The Coffee Cart + Food Zone.

Coffee Cart: Maybe it’s just us, but nothing beats the learning that happens with our peers over a hot cup of caffeine. Which is why the coffee cart returns in 2024, free for attendees to enjoy!



Food Zone: A Something Digital favourite, our Food Zone returns to satisfy the human amongst the digital. After all, everyone’s got to eat! You can purchase a delicious bite to eat from one of our food trucks, pull up a seat, and get chatting to someone new in the digital community. 

Exclusive AMA Session.

New in 2023, attendees who hold a week long Something Fest ticket will have the opportunity to apply for an exclusive ‘Ask Me Anything‘ session with a selection of the Something Digital Speakers.


Bring your questions and settle in for a no holds barred session with some of our digital finest.


Full details and opportunity to apply will be available closer to the festival.
