CASE ORGANISATION FOR THE PROGRAM (if not using your own organisational program)

Project Organisation: CEBIT Australia

Website: http://www.cebit.com.au/

(Information partly sourced from CEBIT’s website)

CeBIT is the focal point for the Asia Pacific business technology industry. Across both the exhibition and conference, CeBIT Australia is the leading marketplace for current and future business technology.

This year CeBIT Australia is celebrating its 17th year and in that time it has truly cemented its position as the business technology event for the region, attracting thousands of technology professionals from Government, enterprise, SMEs and start-ups.

Same as previous years, CeBIT is organising APAC’s largest & longest running B2B technology exhibition & conference with 15k technology professionals from enterprise, government, SME & start-up to join the program event.

The program event has truly cemented its position as the business technology event for the region, attracting thousands of technology professionals from Government, enterprise, SMEs and start-ups. The NSW Government are the Official Partner of CeBIT Australia and we are also supported by the City of Sydney amongst other organisations. CeBIT Australia is organised by Hannover Fairs Australia, part of the government owned Deutsche Messe group. With our return in last year to Darling Harbour at the impressive new ICC Sydney facility, CeBIT Australia attracted over 15,000 attendees from Australia’s most important organisations.

Details of the program event

CeBIT focuses on three main pillars, which will be demonstrated at the program event:

Content & Learning: Over 230 presenters gave incredible insights into topics including cyber security, big data, cloud, fintech, mobility, IoT, digital health, egovernment, women in technology, innovation, next generation technologists, SME business growth and much, much more! Our international keynotes included cyber security doyen Eugene Kaspersky and Randi Zuckerburg, former marketing head at Facebook.

Product Discovery: More than 320 companies demonstrated their capabilities in the CeBIT Australia exhibition. The range of exhibiting companies gives visitors a unique view of the latest in business technology. The exhibition is supported by showfloor content and features to bring the technology to life.

Collaboration & Networking: The Exhibition Networking Drinks allow all attendees to mix in a relaxed atmosphere at the end of day two. The 2017 event also saw the ACS launch their annual Digital Pulse report. The CeBIT Black VIP Evening brought together 500 of the leading business and government technologists. The evenings allowed them to network and learn from a range of forward looking presentations.

Details on Last Year Program Event

In last year’s program event CeBIT Australia 2017 delivered 313 exhibitors, 15,559 attendees, International Keynotes including Eugene Kaspersky, 8 conferences, 6 Strategic Panels, 3 Showfloor Theatres, Networking events, StartUp zone, conference & PitchFest.

Program Event & Project for the Event: Since CeBIT is a big organisation that organises massive learning and networking event for business and community it would be suitable for you to clearly look into the details of the projects associated with the program.

The event is expected to be in ICC Sydney at Darling Harbour and run for the 3 days. Due to the significant size of the program event, the management of the organisation has broken down this event into several sub-projects such as:

· Venue & Event Security Project

· Ticketing, Website, Stall Sales, Advertising and Social Media Project

· Stage Management, Backstage and Dressing Room project

· Sound, Video and Lights Project

· Cleanliness and Maintenance Project

· Food and Beverage Project

· Finance and Accounting Project

· Media and VIP Guest Management Project

· Transportation & Delivery Project

Being a manager of the program organisation, you are required to ensure that you document program role and responsibilities, determine finance and resource authorities, compare decision making processes and outcomes against program objectives, design a program records and configuration system, and identify ways to support program implementation.
