Innovation in the heart of Fed Square

Fed Square has turned into a tech-filled, idea-fueled haven for the eighth iteration of Australasia’s premier creative and business event, Pause Fest.

A catalyst for change, a uniter of all industries, and a platform for the future, Pause Fest brings together the world’s foremost thought leaders and innovators from businesses including Airbnb, NASA, Netflix, Girls in Tech and SXSW.

Over three days, Pause Fest blows the minds of many through a delightful series of symposiums, lectures, discussions, immersive experiences, debates and participatory events, all with the aim of sharing knowledge and dreaming up new ideas to create positive change.

Pause Fest founder George Hedon, says Fed Square is the perfect home for Pause Fest.

“We are living in the future these days, and the ideas and experience offered at Pause Fest really are game changing,” said George.

“We are looking forward to future Pause Fest events at Fed Square, and the possibilities of working with a forward-moving company like Apple, when they have their Global Flagship Store here in 2020.

“Fed Square’s pivot to make its public space a ‘creative and tech hub’ will be of incredible importance in signifying the next chapter of the public space evolution.”

As part of Pause Fest, Fed Square has teamed up with tagSpace EXPERIENCE, an augmented reality app that will immerse Fed Square visitors in another world.

By downloading the free tagSpace EXPERIENCE app, users will be able to hunt down eight 3-D robots, droids and drones across key locations at Fed Square.

tagSpace CEO Paul Martin said the tagSpace EXPERIENCE will “…give people the opportunity to feel the wonder and see the possibilities of this interactive technology.”

Pause Fest runs at Fed Square 7 – 9 February. tagSpace: Robots @ Fed Square runs until 28 February.
