Digital Business, Digital Economy is proudly sponsored by:




Join ABSIA for our Annual Conference Digital Business, Digital Economy on 24 October at the Swissôtel in Sydney. Building upon our previous successes, we are once again bringing together the business software industry and government to reflect, learn and speculate about what is next for our sector.

Hear from Deborah Anton, Iain Rouse, Jason Luchesse and many more as we run through e-Invoicing specifications and PEPPOL updates, introduce our new Security Standard for Add-on Marketplaces (SSAM), discuss the continued importance of data and the opportunities that are now possible through increased data creation.

Digital Business, Digital Economy promises to be an insightful full day event filled with a multitude of networking opportunities including post-conference networking drinks and canapés. Find more details and ticketing information below.
