ABOUT THE EVENT /

The 10th annual event for critical communications users and industry

Comms Connect has grown and developed to become the number one meeting place for those involved with professional communications across the region. Whether you’re in the resource sector or public safety, transport or utilities, are a reseller or a manufacturer, Comms Connect delivers you with the opportunity to seek out new technologies and solutions, while learning, sharing ideas and making new contacts.

What mix of technologies will we be using in five or 10 years’ time? Which networks will you be using and will hybrid solutions be the answer? Is DMR set to continue to grow in popularity or will professional LTE be the new norm?

All these questions and more will be answered at Comms Connect Melbourne 2016.

Join us this November and help us celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Australasian critical communications sector’s favourite conference and exhibition.

It’s time for change, and for the very first time the conference and exhibition will be located in the same space — with only the workshops remaining in the Convention Centre.

See you in Melbourne!
