Mark Your Calendar! April 26th booth selection meeting for MTS2024

Australia, New Zealand and Southern Pacific Islands Section

Join Our Friends List Join SMPTE!

Welcome to the Australia, New Zealand and Southern Pacific Islands Section

Geographically we are one of the largest SMPTE sections in the world as we cover Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Ocean’s islands in the southern hemisphere: a huge area!

Our heritage is in the Australian section that was founded in 1971. Since 1984 this SMPTE Section has been delivering a world-class media show and conference in Sydney that has become a biennial must-visit event for technology professionals and engineers.  

This is now reborn as the METexpo Experience to be held 5th – 7th March 2024 in Sydney.

We are a very friendly and welcoming community of professionals who meet for social events, facility tours and technology knowledge sharing. Our membership is becoming much more diverse with people across the wide range of media professionals, engineers, operational staff, production, post-production, networking, and anyone connected with tech in streaming, broadcast or movies.

Become a member today and join us at our events; access discounts for the METexpo conference; and sign up for SMPTE standards and training courses – all included within the membership. 

We currently run in-person events mainly in Sydney and Auckland.

Over three days in March 2024 we are reinventing what a conference and industry show can be.

Join us from 5th – 7th March for our brand-new experience aimed at all generations of professionals from students, those in their first or second job through to those with decades of experience. We promise to be engaging, entertaining, and inviting.

All the details are here at our special site for the event: www.metexpo.com.au 

For members of SMPTE, the 3-day conference is available for just $150.   

This compares to the full price of $840.
