Dermot McCann, SVP and General Manager, APAC at Kaseya

Kaseya, the provider of unified IT management and security software for managed service providers (MSPs) and SMBs, announced that Sydney is back in business! After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, Connect IT Asia-Pacific returns, July 19-21, 2022 for its annual IT conference at the Hyatt Regency Sydney located next to Darling Harbour in the CBD.

What is the Connect IT Asia-Pacific event line-up?

World-famous professional surfer Layne Beachley AO will headline the Connect IT Asia-Pacific event. Beachley, a beloved Australian, will inspire attendees with her presentation on sustaining success, overcoming challenges and maintaining a winning mindset.

“We are thrilled to be back and get to share best practices and network in person. We have an exciting lineup featuring some of Aussie’s most beloved personalities, and this will be a must-attend event,” said Dermot McCann, Kaseya SVP and General Manager, APAC.

What to watch out for at the Connect IT Asia-Pacific?

Leading up to the event, there will be a pre-day M&A Summit focused on mergers and acquisitions as well as sales and marketing. Designed to help MSPs understand how M&A activity will impact the industry, the summit will feature sessions by industry experts, including transaction advisors, private equity managers and successful sellers and buyers.

They will discuss evaluating opportunities, preparing for an exit and avoiding common pitfalls. Another highlight is the job fair to address tech hiring challenges facing the industry. Through its university partnerships, Kaseya has invited a qualified talent pool to attend Connect IT so that vendors may interview them for open positions with their respective companies.

Kaseya understands that tech talent is in high demand, and hard to find, and even spearheaded its own companywide initiative, ‘Grow Your Own,’ a program that provides mentorship to employees across the company so they can move up within the organization.

The event is sponsored by Platinum Sponsor Cisco, Gold Sponsor Bitdefender and Silver Sponsor Invarosoft. Get your Connect IT Asia-Pacific tickets and the latest info on programming, key announcements and news from our sponsors at
