Southern Grampians Shire Council presents

Digital Innovation & Smart Agriculture 2019 Festival

Southern Grampians Shire Council presents the inaugural Greater Hamilton Digital Innovation and Smart Agriculture (DISA) 2019 Festival leveraging off our experience as a regional area undergoing a digital transformation program for our community.

The primary focus of the Festival is to showcase how rural communities are embracing new technology and innovative practices to gain an edge. Whether you are from a rural council, work on a farm or live in a rural community,  you will learn from your peers who have taken up the challenge to break new ground using technology to build a greater future not only for themselves but for the region.

Greater Hamilton region is transforming into a Smart Connected Community that is a leading example of a successful digital economy for regional Australia and we invite you to become part of our journey.

The 2019 conference will have are two main themes:

SMART AGRICULTURE- A focus on the farming community, suppliers and innovators within the agriculture space.

SMART COMMUNITY / CITIES - From sensor technology, public WiFi, smart lighting and open data, all these topics are relevant to help smaller rural councils, agencies and authorities improve and be more efficient.


The DISA 2019 Festival will primarily be held at The Hamilton Exhibition and Conference centre, a state of the art purpose built conference and exhibition space located conveniently at the Hamilton Showgrounds. Buses will take participants on a day of farm tours in the surrounding region.
