Myriad 2018 — Australia’s leading innovation festival

Queensland is brimming with ideas and talent. Myriad makes sure this innovation is seen as well as heard.

Once a year, Myriad gathers the world’s most influential thinkers and tinkerers, entrepreneurs and experts, rebels and renegades in beautiful Brisbane, Australia. Together, we aim to push the world forward, one essential question at a time.

With over 200 speakers and 5,000 participants, Myriad 2018 is our most vibrant festival yet.

We’ve searched high and low for the craziest success stories, innovative tech and remarkable ideas to bring you something indescribably special this year. We’re even flying a bunch of Silicon Valley stars across the pacific. We’ve gathered the most influential minds to talk about the future of:

  • Health
  • Food
  • Cities
  • Money
  • Play
  • Culture
  • Work

Myriad is as much an inclusive cultural experiment, as it is an inspiring technological marvel. It’s a celebration of the human beings who find themselves at the uncertain intersections of culture and industry and choose to make a difference.

Featuring founders, investors, thought leaders and senior executives from some of the most influential brands on the planet, Myriad 2018 is where Australia meets the future.

The program is designed to engage curious minds in a variety of unique formats – keynote presentations, fireside conversations, panel discussions, intimate workshops, powerful masterclasses, networking opportunities, live performances and epic parties.
