Be an Official DIF Event
26th August, 2018
Would you like to be part of this year’s Digital Innovation Festival?
The DIF is seeking out excellence across the tech community to host events to help people discover digital Victoria.
Ready to be an event host? Sign up by clicking on the pink button on the top right corner and create your own DIF account. Once you’re logged in you can Post an Event by clicking the other pink button in the top left corner. This will walk you through registering an account to post your event and also create your own DIF experience. If you'd like some more help, please check out the 2018 DIF Event Host Instructions.
Once your event is approved as an official Event, it is given priority ranking on the DIF Online Event Hub and promoted in the DIF Official Program Issuu. Your Event Host Account is fully self-service so that any changes, even last minute ones, can be made by you. It also allows you to create your own DIF experience as an audience member would, by shortlisting events and scheduling tailored alerts to your inbox.

What is the DIF Feedback Loop?
Events are better when an audience is engaged, with the content, your speakers and each other.
We know that running evaluation surveys can be expensive and is often the last thing the team wants to do. So, we wanted make it easy and fun to engage with the community.
The DIF has created a new way for event hosts and audiences to really connect. Partnering with Melbourne firm Impactful.ai we’ve created the DIF Have your Say Platform. Best thing is we are sharing the benefit with you, our event hosts.
Hosts will have access to an account for their own event to run:
- Audience mailouts
- Q&A sessions
- Visualisation of comments
- Show/hide comments
- Attendee surveys
- CSV output of data
The DIF team will also be able to connect with you and your audience for feedback along the way.
- Festival attendees survey
- Event Host survey
- DIF Pulse mini-surveys
