Once a year, the world’s most influential thinkers, entrepreneurs and innovators gather in Queensland for Myriad, Australia’s premier technology and innovation event.

Startups and innovators from across regional Queensland can now apply to be supported to attend and showcase at Myriad from 16–18 May 2018 at the Royal International Convention Centre, Brisbane.

If you are a regional entrepreneur, startup or innovative businesses this is your opportunity to hear local and international speakers, exhibit your innovation and connect into a valuable network of collaboration and partnership opportunities across Australia and the Asia Pacific and beyond.

Up to ten delegates will be selected from each of the ARIP regions to attend and showcase in their region’s exhibit space in The Garage.

Applications are open for a limited time. To find out more about the eligibility criteria, selection process and closing dates in your region please contact your Myriad regional co-ordinator as soon as possible.

Advance Queensland, through the Advancing Regional Innovation Program (ARIP), is providing funding to each of the 12 ARIP regions to support regional innovators to attend and interact at Myriad and showcase their ideas to major corporations and international investors.

Each selected regional delegate will receive an event ticket and have the opportunity to showcase their innovative product/service to a local, national and global audience. Delegations from seven regions* have also attracted additional financial support to assist offset expenses associated with attending Myriad 2018.
