Several councils have expressed interest in participating in MAVHACK 2. Negotiations are now underway to run MAVHACK2 in three regional locations simultaneously, in the lead-up to the MAV Technology “The Transformers” conference in March.

Each event will use the same branding, facilitation tools and video recording techniques that were established during MAVHACK1.

MAVHACK2 will address more of the pain points identified by the Digital Transformation Taskforce, and/or problems identified by the participating regions:

  • Gippsland Region

Latrobe City Council will host the event. Participating councils will include Baw Baw, Bass Coast, East Gipplsland, South Gippsland and Wellington. We will also be seeking the participation of Federation University.

  • North/Central Region

Greater Bendigo City Council will host the event. Participating councils are to be determined. We will also be seeking the participation of Latrobe University.

  • Geelong Region

Greater Geelong City Council will host the event. Participating councils are likely to be the G21 councils: Greater Geelong, Surf Coast, Colac Otway, Corangamite and Queenscliffe. We will also be seeking the participation of Deakin University.

In addition to the local regional presentation days, the outcomes from the three locations will be presented and compared on day two of “The Transformers”conference.
