The Victorian Government is proud to support the 2013 iAwards hosted in Melbourne for the 6th year
The Victorian Government is proud to support the annual iAwards program and we are delighted to see Melbourne again hosting the prestigious iAwards presentation event and gala dinner for the fifth consecutive year.
The iAwards honours the achievements of home-grown Australian innovators and as Victoria fosters a skilled, innovative and creative ICT workforce we are excited to be involved in the premier awards program for Australia’s ICT sector.
Victoria is Australia’s ICT hub and has one of the largest R&D clusters in the Southern Hemisphere, providing world-leading, commercially focused ICT research.
Our ICT sector employs around 87,400 people – approximately 29 per cent of total Australian ICT industry employment. The Victorian ICT industry generates annual revenue of around $30 billion and around $2.35 billion in exports.
Our state is at the forefront of the convergence of ICT, biotechnology and small technologies which in turn opens up exciting possibilities for ICT development into the future.
The Victorian Government understands that technology is key to our economic future and we are committed to working with businesses to ensure they have every opportunity to succeed locally and globally.
