Join The Austrade Delegation at RSA Conference 2024

Austrade invites expressions of interest from Australian cyber security companies interested in expanding into the United States to join the Austrade delegation at RSA Conference 2024 from 6 to 9 May 2024.

The program includes pre-departure and market briefings, in-market events alongside the RSA Conference including an evening reception, and support and services from the Austrade team on the ground.


Why you should participate

RSA Conference has been running for 32 years and is the largest global cyber security conference annually.

From 6 to 9 May, RSA Conference 2024 will deliver keynotes, interactive and informative sessions, countless opportunities for networking and more, alongside two large expo spaces. 

Learn more about the RSAC 2024 agenda here.

Join the Austrade program to maximise your time in San Francisco through bespoke sessions focusing on cyber security in the United States including market briefings, reverse pitch sessions, B2B interactions, a networking lunch, and a VIP evening reception. Delegates will also work closely with the Austrade team on the ground during the conference.

A more detailed agenda will be shared with participants once finalised.

The Victorian State Government (Global Victoria) will undertake an extension program for Victorian participants, inclusive of access to the RSA Conference and additional activity outside of the Austrade program. Global Victoria will communicate the details of this program separately.
