Social Events at AusCERT2016

Tuesday evening: Welcome - Beers of the World

It should come as no surprise that beer is the number one drink consumed each year at the AusCERT conference. Select sponsors will serve a range of international beers directly from their booths on the Tuesday evening to kick off AusCERT2016.

Wednesday evening: Free Evening

Catch up with old and new friends, take a client out to dinner, enjoy the nightlife of Surfers Paradise or Broadbeach, or simply kick back in your room with room service. This night off is yours.

Thursday evening: Gala Dinner

The Gala Dinner incorporating pre-drinks and canapes, a three course meal and drinks, exciting entertainment by Tom Thum and the AusCERT Awards will be on Thursday 26th of May in the Ballroom of the Surfers Paradise Marriott.

Sponsors may opt to purchase a reserved table at the Gala Dinner. This is a great opportunity to network with key clients and new contacts you’ve made throughout the conference or want to get to know. Host your own corporate table at the Gala Dinner and invite your own guests

Entry to the AusCERT2016 Gala Dinner and Awards is included in the delegate registration fees.

Please contact our conference secretariat on +61 2 9553 4820 if you are interested in buying tickets and/or reserving a table.

It’s been said many times that Beat Boxer Tom Thum appears to have not only a symphony orchestra but also a jazz band, techno DJ, 80’s synth pop group and collection of exotic world instruments all residing somewhere in his throat. 

Tom's 2013 TEDx Sydney performance propelled him to internet stardom as his 15 minute showcase quickly became the highest viewed TEDx video of all time with over 40 million views and counting! Now recognised worldwide for his obscure talent to warp and manipulate his vocal chords, Beat Boxer Tom Thum continues to prove to audiences that there is no sound he cannot mimic to perfection. 

'… trumpet blasts, guitar strums and samples from classic songs including Michael Jackson's Billie Jean effortlessly spout from his mouth' - TIME OUT NEW YORK (USA)

Tom's unique abilities have seen him perform to sold out crowds all over the world and his recent collaboration with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra has put him in a league of his own. With his vocal talents being sought out by brands such as Disney and Audi, he has proven that his sound is truly world class and transcends expectations.

Always in constant demand, Tom Thum continues to travel the globe, enlightening audiences the world over with his extraordinary, mind-blowing talents. If you've never been lucky enough to witness this Beat Boxing phenomenon in action, you certainly should (and thank us later).
