Join government, business leaders and political bloggers at the 
second annual Microsoft Politics & Technology Forum.

On this informative morning, Keynote Speaker Joe Trippi details the 
impact of new technologies on modern politics. Heralded by the US 
press as the man who "reinvented campaigning", Joe has run 
Presidential, Senate, Gubernatorial and Mayoral campaigns. His 
innovations have brought fundamental change to the electoral system 
and have become the model for online campaigning.

There will also be a Q&A panel discussion, new technologies will be 
demonstrated, and some revealing insights and statistics around 
Australian digital behaviour will be shared.

We are delighted to welcome Lindsay Tanner MP, Minister for Finance 
and Deregulation, The Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP, Leader of the 
Opposition to this exciting event:
