WORKTECH22 Sydney is the conference for all those involved in the future of work and the workplace as well as real estate, technology and innovation.

WORKTECH brings innovative ideas and inspiration to the workplace community through inter-disciplinary speakers and learning experience to enhance creativity and move thinking forward.

Join over 300 senior professionals from real estate, facilities, HR, technology, executive management, architecture, design and professional advisors to listen to global thought leaders, further their knowledge and share best practise and expertise.

After a hiatus in our programming, we are delighted to be getting back to real life conferences. Join us to hear from speakers with international reputations and network with peers in a way you haven’t been able to for nearly 2 years. The conference agenda includes plenty of time to network and socialise and closes with a drinks reception. Given increased remote working over the last 18 months, this is a great opportunity to bring your team/colleagues together to socialise and learn for the day.
