Communications Minister, Senator Stephen Conroy, has named Hobart, Tasmania, as host city for the Korea-Australia-New Zealand (KANZ) Broadband Summit this year.
The event, which is held around ever two years since 2003, will run from April 28-29.
Convergence, digital business, digital education, telehealth and broadband polices will be some of the topics to be covered by the Broadband Summit.
"The KANZ Broadband Summit provides a unique opportunity for industry, research and government representatives from each of the three countries to share insights into their experience of developing broadband-enabled digital economies and to explore potential joint ventures," Senator Conroy said in a statement.
He was particularly pleased the event will be held in Tasmania where part of the National Broadband Network (NBN) has already been deployed.
