SXSW Sydney Super Sponsors Revealed

June 8, 2023

Today, we’re excited to announce the collaboration with two of our country’s most iconic brands, Commonwealth Bank Australia (CommBank, CBA) and Qantas. Both are joining as Super Sponsors of SXSW Sydney 2023, and we couldn’t be more stoked.

CommBank and Qantas are tech trailblazers, with countless innovations, updates and world-class improvements under their belts, aligning them perfectly with SXSW Sydney. This October, our global futurist event will showcase innovative new products and discuss what’s next for tech.

A Partnership You Can Bank On

CommBank, Australia’s leading technology bank, will be unveiling an updated version of the CommBank app just shy of SXSW Sydney to their 8.3 million+ digitally active users. Technology and innovation are at the heart of every advancement they make, ensuring their multi-award winning app gives users a highly personalised service, delivering more choice and differentiated benefits.

“We’re proud to be the trusted partner of one in three Australians and a quarter of all businesses, thanks in part to the strength of our technology leadership. From our leading digital experience to protecting our customers against scams and fraud, to world leading data and insights capability, and more recently creating AI-driven personalisation and navigation. Our association with SXSW Sydney is therefore fitting given the intersection between innovation, technology, creativity and customer service.”

Meet Project Sunrise

Qantas, a brand steeped in innovation continues their efforts to revolutionize air travel with its latest project, connecting the east coast of Australia to New York and London with their new Sunrise Cabins. But it doesn’t stop there for Qantas, with their plans to make the aviation industry more environmentally friendly through the development of a sustainable aviation fuel industry in Australia.

Event attendees will also be given a chance to step into their new innovative designs, with the Sunrise Cabin First and Business Class rigs set to feature at the SXSW Sydney 2023 Expo.

“We’re proud to partner with SXSW Sydney to share our stories of how we plan to push the boundaries in aviation to make flying the best it can be for our customers.”
