Australasia's leading global forum for innovation & technology

View After Show Report

QODE brings together leaders from the AI ecosystem, entrepreneurs, CXOs, investors, AI experts and tech professionals from the world’s leading tech companies, startups and VCs.

Why we are so excited about QODE is because it looks beyond technology and provides a new level of clarity of the changes and challenges our working and personal lives face.

Digital transformation is already in full swing. Artificial intelligence (AI), human-machine collaboration and platform economics are the drivers of this development, enabling innovative business processes and industrial growth. But what comes next? And what advantages are to be expected from the widespread use of future technologies & innovation?

QODE is the new forum for visionaries, pioneers and innovations drivers, with speakers from a wide range of backgrounds in industry, government, business, technology, science and society. What will be the impact of the expansion of 5G networks and what potential does this hold? What new options will augmented and mixed reality applications open up for industry? And what new technologies will be the trendsetters in tomorrow’s fully connected world? These and other exciting topics will be in the spotlight at QODE. Attendees are invited to take part in our interactive sessions and share their experiences, ideas and theories.

Technology is now the single most important factor in driving the business and economic landscape.


It disrupts longstanding stable industries – look at the impact of Amazon on retail, Twitter on NewsMedia, Uber on Taxis – just to name a few.
It creates new businesses and new industries.
And while we don’t know exactly what lies ahead, one thing is certain – companies, cities and economies that don’t embrace and adapt to the new technology trends will be left behind.
QODE is a new technology and innovation event for Australia – right in the heart of Brisbane – gateway to the Asia Pacific
QODE is for companies, government officials, investors, entrepreneurs and startups – all trying to understand what the future business landscape will look like as technology drives continuous change.
Featuring global experts presenting centrestage over two days, QODE will be unlike any other technology event in Australia:
