Demo Day 2017

Tuesday, 5 December

Unearthed Demo Day 2017 will be an opportunity to join industry change-makers and explore how your company can take advantage of emerging technologies. This year, we want to break the mould and get the entire audience involved. We will run a series of interactive sessions to immerse everyone in blockchain, artificial intelligence and cyber security. As individuals leave we want them to feel the impact these trends can have in the resources sector. We have a full day of scheduled activities to get people excited and out of their comfort zone. It is an opportunity to collaborate in new and meaningful ways, to set a different path to the future.
