The technology sector In WA is acknowledged as a hard-working, head down, tenacious collection of creatives, entrepreneurs, innovators and influencers that are highly-skilled, motivated and collaborative.

As Chief Scientist of WA Prof Peter Klinken said at the 2015 event “It’s not like everyone here is competing, In many ways they’re all complementary to each other. But sometimes you need the nucleation step before you form the crystal “West Tech Assemblage is your nucleation step, it gives the tech sector a voice and helps keep WA on the innovation agenda.

This is your opportunity to stimulate new ideas and contacts, to foster future collaborations and to recognise and acknowledge the growth and success of everyone involved in the technology ecosystem in WA.

This is the knowledge economy, the driver of productivity and economic growth. Be a part of the drive for collaboration, dispel the fragmentation and change the mindset.

West Tech Assemblage is the annual gathering of the ‘who’s who’ in technology and innovation in WA. The only opportunity in the year for entrepreneurs and makers in the WA technology ecosystem to come together under one roof.

It will bring together Western Australia’s finest technology entrepreneurs, innovators, startups, and organisations.

A meeting of tech minds, from thinkers, creators, makers and collaborators to investors and influencers.

Your ticket includes drinks, and cocktail canapes prepared by Michelin Star Quality Chefs from Ultimo Catering and Events!

And of course; you will be there.
