P11_FutureTransportSummitLogoimage001Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance has announced Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak would headline a NSW Government technology summit to help uncover the next big ideas set to transform the transport system.

The two-day ‘Future Transport’ summit will be held in Sydney on 18-19 April, featuring the brightest minds in tech and transport, with representatives from emerging start-ups and some of the world’s leading technology and transport companies.

“We’ve got big data happening, Opal, ridesharing and the advent of the driverless car around the corner – I want to work with those in-the-know to get a better grasp of what’s coming next and how we can adapt,” Mr Constance said.

“I’m ecstatic we’ve got some big names from Sydney and around the world headlining the event, including Apple Co-founder Steve Wozniak.”

Steve Wozniak said he was excited to be heading to Sydney for the summit to talk all things innovation, technology and transportation.

Registrations are now open for industry leaders to join 150 invited guests and speakers at the event. There will also be many ways for the public to get involved – with live streaming, web chats and plenty of social media conversation.

The summit is part of a 12-month ‘Future Transport’ program, which will also include a youth summit and new partnerships with incubators to stay across emerging ideas and products.
