Technorama 2023 announced – 1-3 December 2023

TR23: Building Your Next Facility

Your committee is very happy to be able to announce that our annual, NATIONAL, real, in person, warm-body gathering is back for the first time since 2019.  Wow.  Has it really been that long?

Put an immediate hold on the first weekend of this coming December, and start thinking about how you’re going to get to Chatswood NSW.

This year we’re returning to The Chatswood Club, which worked so well for last year’s Sydney leg of the TR22ROADshow, and ramping back to the full programming that you know and love.

TR23 Guest of Honour:  Patrick Sproule

Our Special Guest of Honour for TR23 will be Patrick Sproule.  Pat is Head of Content Technology Solutions for our ABC, and is in the middle of building the ABC’s new radio and TV facility at Parramatta.  Some of you will remember Pat from when he headed TV at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga, but before that he got his start (and the bug for technology) at community radio station 2AAA.

What’s on the agenda for TR23?

Watch this space as we break more detail on programming, content and participants but you can assume that all your fave components of the event will take place:

  • Friday night welcome drinks, meet-and-greet
  • A very prominent and well positioned industry TR23 Guest of Honour
  • Practical and informative sessions focused around on this year’s highly relevant theme
  • Mix and discuss with participants from our partner Sector Organisations
  • Technorama Awards
  • Annual Dinner and Quiz Night
  • Show-and-tell from members and vendors
  • and much more

But wait – there’s more!

We’re also in early stages of planning two additional activities for participants:

  • Friday 1 December:  Education Day.  This year’s topic: clever stuff to do at your station with the Raspberry Pi platform


  • prepping for your Cert IV:   plans for delivering a Certificate IV qualification in Media Technology are moving along, and we are partnering with CMTO to bring the Recognition of Prior Learning process up to speed.

Definitely watch this space.

Programming detail, pricing, accommodation, travel offers, and lots more are in the pipeline.

TR23 is Highly Affordable!

One piece of good news, which we’re leaking right now so that you can get TR23 into household and station budgets:  we’re very confident that – despite passage of time and massive increase in pricing of EVERYTHING associated with conferences – we’re going to be able to hold the  all-inclusive, food-and-everything Technorama Member price below $130.

Right now (early August) we’re seeing airfares between $200-300 return to Sydney from MEL, BNE, ADL and HBA, on airlines that you’d actually want to use.  🙂   Hotels look to be around $200/night within 5 minutes walk of the venue. That’s off-the-web rackrate, and we’re working to get a conference roomblock rate to be even more affordable.

Become a Technorama Member right now

By the way, if you’re not yet a member of Technorama, or your membership has lapsed, how about joining?  Quick, easy, only $10 for station participants and you will save at least $15 on your TR23 registration.

Hold the date for a very relevant, affordable weekend, and a opportunity to learn from some of the best in the business.

Friday 1 December to Sunday 3 December for Technorama TR23.
