B2B Rocks set to make Australia rock

As well as listening to the inspiring speakers, attendees at B2B Rocks will have the opportunity to participate in round-tables, open discussions and networking activities with rising start-ups, fast-growing companies, VCs and journalists.

B2B Rocks is coming to Sydney to be the first B2B and SaaS start-ups conference in Australia.

The event will happen on Thursday, 27 October 2016, from 9am to 6:30pm, at the Australian Technology Park.

The first Australian edition of this international conference series will gather over 20 speakers from leading start-ups and investors in the B2B and SaaS space, giving 20-minute talks and 40-minute panel discussions about disruptive technologies (IoT, VR, Cloud solutions), success, failures, growth hacking and how to go international to up to 500 high profiles attendees (60% founders and entrepreneurs, 10% VCs and investors and 30% C-Level executives).

Besides the inspiring talks, attendees will have the opportunity to participate to round-tables, open discussions and networking activities with rising start-ups, fast-growing companies, VCs and journalists at the Locomotive Workshop.

After three successful editions in Paris, France and thousands of top-notch attendees, we decided to expand internationally and come to Sydney where the B2B and SaaS ecosystem is growing quickly.

B2B Rocks will be also part of the Spark Festival (ex-Sydney Startup Week), a one-week festival connecting people, ideas and resources across the entire innovation and startup ecosystem from 22 October to 30 October.
