TR23: Building Your Next Facility

Our annual, NATIONAL, real, in person, warm-body gathering is back for the first time since 2019.  Wow.  Has it really been that long?

If you’re ready to register, logon to your TR membership first, (and if you’re not a member, then sign up for as little as $10) then head to the registration page.  If you need more information, then read on!

Put an immediate hold on the first weekend of this coming December, and start thinking about how you’re going to get to Chatswood NSW.

We’re returning to The Chatswood Club which worked so well for last year’s Sydney leg of the TR22ROADshow, and ramping back to the full programming that you know and love.


TR23 Guest of Honour:  Patrick Sproule

Patrick Sproule is our Special Guest of Honour for TR23.  Pat is Head of Content Technology Solutions for our ABC, and is in the throes of building the ABC’s new radio and TV facility at Parramatta.  Some of you will remember Pat from when he headed TV at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga, but before that he got his start (and the bug for technology) at community radio station 2AAA.

What’s on the agenda for TR23?

All your fave components of the event will take place:

  • Friday night welcome drinks, meet-and-greet
  • The very prominent and well positioned industry TR23 Guest of Honour
  • Practical and informative sessions focused around on this year’s highly relevant theme:  “Building Your Next Facility”
  • Mix and discuss with participants from our partner Sector Organisations
  • Annual Dinner and Quiz Night
  • Show-and-tell from members and vendors
  • and much more

But wait – there’s more!

We’ve also announced two additional activities for participants:

  • Friday 1 December:  Education Day.  This year’s topic: clever stuff to do at your station with the Raspberry Pi platform


  • prepping for your Cert IV:   plans for delivering a Certificate IV qualification in Media Technology are moving along, and we are partnering with CMTO to bring the Recognition of Prior Learning process up to speed.  We’ll tell you how the training, and RPL is going to work.

Definitely watch this space.

TR23 is Highly Affordable!

One piece of good news, which we’re leaking right now so that you can get TR23 into household and station budgets: despite passage of time and massive increase in pricing of EVERYTHING associated with conferences, we’ve held the all-inclusive, food-and-everything Technorama Member price at or below $130.

Travel:  we’re seeing airfares between $200-300 return to Sydney from MEL, BNE, ADL and HBA, on airlines that you’d actually want to use.   Hotels within 5 minutes walk of the venue are around $200/night.  That’s off-the-web rackrate, and you can often get a cheaper rate by booking directly with the property.

Become a Technorama Member right now

By the way, if you’re not yet a member of Technorama, or your membership has lapsed, how about joining?  Quick, easy, only $10 for station participants and you will save at least $15 on your TR23 registration.

Hold the date for a very relevant, affordable weekend, and a opportunity to learn from some of the best in the business.

Register right now

If you’re ready to go, and you’re already a current Technorama member (because we really want you to save money on this) head to the registration page and sign up.

Friday 1 December to Sunday 3 December for Technorama TR23.
