This March, the iconic Margaret River region becomes a creative playground for one of the world’s most inspiring “anti-conferences”. 3 days of shot-in-the-arm keynotes, hands-on workshops, incredible pop-ups and satellite events, led by a gathering of the best local and international creative professionals in their fields.

Each year marketers, content-makers, innovators, futurists, leaders and artists across music, film, advertising, photography, digital, experiential and visual arts come to Emergence to collaborate and share knowledge in a unique brains trust.  Whether it’s ideas, inspiration, networking, industry insights or emerging trends you’re after, The Emergence Creative Festival brings it all together in a wild few days.

2020 theme:
Human Connection in a Post-Digital World

The Digital Revolution peaked over a decade ago.  This is now the age of experience.  But is our digital attachment as consumers and businesses, detaching us from the human experience?

In a world of A.I. drones, deepfakes and the deep web, how much do brands & organisations value tangible human connection and how do they foster it?

Our keynotes will share their journeys and experiences, exploring how they – and we –  can harness the benefits of new tech, dodge the pitfalls and connect as people in a post-digital landscape.

MEET YOUR MC // In 2020 Emergence will be led by Nicole Velik, founder of @theideasbodega and host of @sydney_cm. Here's what former Emergence MC @glenndamental had to say about Nicole... 'Nicole is a white-hot superstar - taught by legends and with the kind of experience we'd all kill for. But she's the best kind of creative thought leader in that she is generous with her time, and believes in sharing her considerable knowledge to nurture the creative potential in everyone. On top of that she's funny, engaging and a whip-smart facilitator - basically the kind of MC that enriches the whole experience for everyone - audience and speakers combined.'
