Don't miss out - Pause Fest 2020 is on the hunt!

The Shaker
Fri 24 May

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, Pause Fest is seeking expressions of interest for a range of slots on their talent-stacked roster for 2020.

Pause alumni include thinkers from the likes of Google, Amazon, Netflix, Airbnb, HyperloopTT, NASA, IBM, Cisco, JWT, WGSN, Adobe, Wired, WPP, CERN, InVision, YouTube, nChain, Pixar, Lucasfilm and now it’s your chance to put your ideas forward.
Inspire a new generation. And rub shoulders with the giants of innovation across the worlds of creative, tech and business - this is definately an opportunity not to miss! 

Among other things, festival organisers are looking for crowd-commanding MCs, thoughtleading speakers, wisdom-wielding experts and perspective-bending pioneers. The festival will showcase the most innovate professional minds from the world and Australia across a slew of interactive events, installations and exhibits, all packed into three awe-inspiring days.



Our speakers represent the spirit, ingenuity and entrepreneurial drive that Pause cultivates. Together with MCs and Volunteers they form a foundation of the event. Pause welcomes the world’s best and brightest thinkers to our stage each year to share powerful presentations from the ever-evolving future in the world of business. What will the next decade be about? And who owns it? 2020 marks the new beginning for which we need a super vision, maybe even interstellar. With empathy. It’s a big opportunity to shift our mindsets to the next level.

Pause Fest 2020 theme New Odyssey will explore the next phase of our evolution in business and society.

Need more convincing?

In 2019, Pause Fest saw over 19,000 people pass through festival doors. Attendees heard from 300 inspirational speakers who presented ideas that challenged perceptions and inspired new ways of thinking across creative, tech and business. The festival gets
exponentially bigger and better every year! 

The only rule for expressions of interest is that any ideas put forward must be 'content you can't Google'. Pause Fest will take place in February 2020, in Melbourne.
