Edge of the Web

Held in conjunction with the Australian Web Awards, Edge of the Web is a one-day event for anyone interested in digital. Hear from globally recognised leaders on the latest trends, current issues and groundbreaking work – happening right here on home soil.

2022 Edge of the Web - Adapt:Grow

Date: Friday 13th May 2022

Time:  A full day event from 9am to 5pm, followed by drinks

Location:  Fishburners Coworking Space, Sydney, NSW.

The last two years have presented great challenges and opportunities for those of us working in digital. As we continue to see technology explode and expand at ever-increasing rates, our task as digital professionals is to learn the best ways to adapt and grow along with it – as creatives, as business owners and as in-house digital teams. 

That’s why this year’s Edge of the Web theme is twofold: ADAPT and GROW. We’re seeing digital teams continue to push the boundaries with what’s possible and modify existing technologies to solve the world’s most pressing issues. And, at the same time, digital is undergoing a massive growth spurt, asking the people who power it to dig deep and bring forth creativity on every level. 

We’ll explore a range of questions related to the theme and more at Edge of the Web 2022, including:

  • What strategies can we use to adapt to a changing world?
  • How can we continue to champion better digital experiences?
  • What does it take to achieve true innovation in digital in 2022 and beyond?

Who is this event for?

Edge of the Web 2022 is an event for anyone who works in or is passionate about digital. To be more specific:

  • Digital and creative agencies
  • In-house digital teams
  • Freelancers, and
  • University-level students.

It’s an opportunity to boost your knowledge, hear stories from the ‘arena’ and meet your peers in a supportive and inclusive environment. 


COVID backup plan: The event will be live streamed regardless, but if we can't travel, we'll host the entire event via Zoom and you can present from the comfort of your own home or office.
