CeBIT Australia has been Asia Pacific’s largest and longest running CeBIT-Black-Logobusiness technology event for fifteen years and has delivered inspirational and informative business intelligence to nearly half a million attendees.

We recognise, however, that the requirements of the elite of Australian business and the enterprise & government level technology suppliers that they engage, require a distinct event to cater for their requirements.

This has led to the creation of CeBIT BLACK, held for the first time in 2016, a unique engagement opportunity for tier one enterprise technology leaders and a limited number of enterprise level technology providers.

CeBIT Australia will again be partnering with the International Cycling Executives (ICE) to host a unique networking and learning environment for members of the C-Suite business community who have a shared passion for riding a bike.

With the event moving back into the City in 2017 the format for our partnership with ICE has evolved. This year CeBIT will host three separate ‘invite only’ rides in the build up to the event. Each ride will conclude with an in-depth roundtable discussion over breakfast. C-level executives from many of Australia’s most important businesses will benefit from this unique environment to relax, share, benchmark and learn from their peers. Limited to just 16 riders the participants on each ride will get a unique chance to form lasting, meaningful and productive business relationships.
