Getting into the Melbourne Mood – for Connect Expo 2016
We are going to the Connect Expo 2016! Yes, we are! It’s Australia’s most important ICT and emerging tech event, with a series of strategic business conferences (summits), FREE educational seminars, live demos and technology zones…
.. And guess which city is hosting it?
<let Google catch a break, we’ll tell you ourselves because we can’t contain our excitement>
Apart from preparing our talking points and getting our data sets refreshed, we were also doing a bit of our research about how best to spend our time in Melbourne! We thought we would share them with you.
We found some interesting sites that gave a pretty comprehensive view of how things about there.
Notable one was this:
Play Melbourne Live is a game Melbourne city and its visitors play every day.
Their ball puts a live Periscope stream in the hands of the people, to tell the most authentic stories of our city.
This is pretty neat use of technology to get the city to people across the world, just as the way local see it!
Assuming the best that you are going to the conference as well, here’s a list of places where we hope to bump into you as well –
The Queen Victoria Markets – Shop till you are full
Queen Victoria Market is much more than the city’s fresh-food shopping mecca – it’s a historic landmark, a tourist attraction and a Melbourne institution. – http://www.thatsmelbourne.com.au/
Melbourne Zoo – Into the wild
Over 250 species from around the world can be found in the beautifully landscaped settings of Melbourne Zoo, just five minutes from the city centre. – http://www.visitvictoria.com/
Sunbury Wine Region – More wine?
You’ve barely left Melbourne behind when you find yourself in the Sunbury wine region, exploring vineyards, opening cellar doors and tasting palatable wines. – http://sunburywines.com.au/
Degraves Street – What is this place?
Idle the afternoon away by the blue-stone cobbles at a Degraves Street or Centre Place cafe and become part of a Melbourne postcard scene. – http://www.visitvictoria.com/
ACMI – Art, Art Everywhere
As the home of Melbourne’s best and most popular film festivals, great Australian and international cinema and regular screenings for seniors, kids and lovers of cult classics, ACMI presents an unparalleled annual calendar. – http://www.visitmelbourne.com/
Internet’s a funny place and we are sure that some of the Melbourne locals will stumble upon this article. If you are locale, or know a thing about Melbourne and have something to add to this article, please do let us know.
Also, if anyone is interest to talk business over a cup of coffee, do contact us.
