2019 Theme.
ALL digital conversations start and end at the same place. With a human.

The human experience is central to our digital conversations whether we are talking about algorithmic bias, ethics, smart cities, operational efficiencies, customer experiences, digital wellness or automation.

Which is why the 2019 theme for Something Digital is 'Power to the People'.

Because people should be at the core of all our digital efforts and innovations. 

So whether you are talking about customers, or employees or society in general - ‘people’ are powering our digital innovations and you know what? People want their digital power back! ​

People want to take back control of their digital personas and the impact tech is having on their lives. People want input into the big digital decisions that will shape our future. People also want to hold onto the conveniences that digital has given us.

It's a big ask. But it is possible. And we have the power to make it happen.

Join us this October at Brisbane’s Digital Festival to learn how digital innovation and success starts and ends with a focus on the human experience.

Power to the People. 

A mind blowing program + speaker lineup.
With an overall theme of ‘Power to the People’, the Something Digital program will focus on the human element of our digital innovations, processes and strategies.

Our international keynotes are ready to take the stage to provoke, push boundaries and challenging your thinking around digital innovation. In addition to these keynotes we will be hosting 25+ local and interstate digital legends.

Spread across 2 stages, their sole aim is to inspire, strengthen digital capabilities and share digital success stories.
