B2B Rocks Sydney 2019: The Premier Event for B2B SaaS Startups

The 2019 edition of B2B Rocks, Australia's leading B2B and SaaS conference, will be held on June 6-7 in Sydney. It gathers the founders and entrepreneurs of the most promising B2B SaaS startups in the Asia-Pacific.

The Event: an international influence, an event on a human scale

Launched by Alex Delivet in 2013, co-founder of Axeleo and founder of Collect, the B2B Rocks conference was held for the first time in 2013 in Paris, before expanding to Sydney in 2016. Axeleo acquired the B2B Rocks brand in February 2018 and is now the lead facilitator.

This conference brings together the key players in SaaS and B2B all in one place, though limiting the capacity to 500 participants.

This is a perfect opportunity for peer-to-peer exchanges and network development.

In addition to creating networking opportunities, this event promotes the exchange of ideas between startup executives and new talents which offers a high added value to all participants.

The Idea: to share advice that can be directly actionable

This major conference brings together founders and representatives of startups in the SaaS and B2B fields, as well as investors and journalists. The environment, which encourages emulation, is a fertile breeding ground for young startups seeking to stimulate their growth.

Fundamentally, the concept of this event is founded on the sharing of expertise at the crossroads of various fields, including marketing, sales, HR, as well as design, international and financial areas.

👉 The main objective of the event is to avoid “small talk” and to focus on concrete topics, so that participants can put in place clear strategies to achieve realistic goals.

Addressing a highly qualified audience, influential personalities from the B2B and SaaS world lead panel discussions and workshops. These activities encourage exchanges and the emergence of concrete solutions for startups wishing to learn from the experience of their peers, explore specific issues and address common challenges.

🏆During this event, the B2B Awards are also held, which award prizes to the most deserving startups.
