Synergy Group is proud to announce that we are in the running to represent Canberra on the National stage at Australia’s first ever SXSW event being held in Sydney this October.

SXSW is one of the world’s biggest tech, innovation, and culture events and for the first time ever, it is venturing outside of the US. SXSW has grown to become a cultural phenomenon, attracting global crowds of creators, innovators, and industry leaders.  

Earlier this the year, SXSW Sydney accepted proposals for a chance to present at the event in October of this year. From here, SXSW Sydney evaluated the submissions and selected proposals to take to the next stage, a public vote! Synergy Group is proud to announce that all three of our pitches have been selected for the next stage and are now in the hands of the public. 

Synergy Group’s participation contributes to the ACT’s 1% representation of proposals by state. Mindful that we are representing the minority across the nation, we are asking our team members, family and friends and the Canberra community to show their support and help Synergy represent Canberra on the National stage in October by voting.

You can vote for your favourite pitch or all three here:

  1. Lessons from Africa: How creativity is our future 
  2. Nothing Exists. Everything is Made up
  3. Trust in AI

Make sure to share with your networks and support Synergy Group’s opportunity to showcase Canberra's innovative and creative capability on a national stage. Get in quick, voting closes April 11.
