New Tickets: We’ve made some epic changes!


Since day one, Pause Fest has been centred around inclusion.

Anyone who’s ever been to the festival will tell you that. We don’t care who you are, what you do, where you’re from, or what level of experience you have – we want you to come, soak up as many ideas and possible, and share as many of your own as you feel inclined to. We want you to meet people, do business, and ultimately grow within the Pause community. We want you to thrive, basically.

This year, we’ve taken those key founding principles of community, inclusion and opportunity to heart, and we’ve rebuilt our ticketing system from the ground up to reflect our commitment to you, our Pause attendees.

There are two big changes to ticketing for Pause Fest 2019. The first of those changes is that we now offer three main ticket types – Creator, Explorer and Leader. And even though we’ve simplified our ticket offering, we’ve actually made Pause Fest even more inclusive than ever before. How? Let’s take a look at the options...



For the Creators

At Pause, we recognise that ideas can come from anywhere. Whether you’re a CEO, an intern, a junior or a janitor – businesses thrive when everyone’s ideas are valued. That’s why, for the first time ever, we’re offering the Creator ticket. This ticket is for those at the very beginning of their journey into the cosmic worlds of creativity, business or tech.

If you’re a student, founder, junior employee or artist, and you have your gaze fixed firmly on the future, or some ideas bouncing around your brainbox, this is for you. We know that the early days or any career can be inspiration-rich but cash-poor. And this ticket is priced to enable maximum access for the minimum cost possible. Creator tickets are awarded on an application-only basis, and fully-formed businesses, small businesses and cash-positive startups are exempt.

For the Explorers

Then we have the Explorer ticket. This one covers off a huge chunk of movers and shakers. Maybe you’re a mid-level employee or – as we like to call them – a CEO in waiting. Or perhaps you’re a future founder (that is, someone who hasn’t quite founded their company yet). Or you might be a dormant disruptor, just waiting for the right time to pounce and shake up your industry. With the Explorer ticket, you’ll get access to everything Pause Fest has to offer, including the official after party. If you want to better yourself, your company, and your career – this ticket is for you.

For the Leaders

Calling all hot-shots: our Leader ticket has your name all over it. Leader ticket holders will enjoy a VIP Business Breakfast and VIP Welcome Dinner at Pause, as well as the opportunity to apply for the VIP-only Pause Retreat. Sounds good, doesn’t it? And that’s not even the half of it.

Our favourite part about the Leader ticket is that it’s shareable, meaning you and members of your team can use it to tag in and out of the multitude of Pause Fest talks, panels and workshops as you wish.

And if you (or your company) spends $5000 or more on Leader tickets, you’ll automatically join the InnerCircle – a Pause Fest initiative to help connect leaders at intimate, private events throughout the rest of the year. If you’re a business leader, C-Suite, or investor looking to bring value to your business or engage your staff and clients, grab a Leader ticket. You won’t regret it.

In addition to our three main ticket types, we also have two more specialised ticket options:




For the Global community

Coming to Pause from outside of Australia? Look no further. Holders of a Global ticket will have all of their travel and accommodation handled by Pause. All you have to do is buy the ticket – we’ll handle the rest.

For the ultimate Retreat

Limited to just 25 tickets, the Pause Retreat package gives you full Leader-ticket access to Pause Fest 2019, and guarantees you a spot on our bespoke, inspiring and envy-inducing experiential Pause Retreat.

We’ve gone all in.

The second big change, in addition to the ticket types, is that we no longer sell individual day tickets. All of our ticketing options now cover the whole of Pause Fest, and will guarantee you a spot at Pause across the full three-day festival.

We made this change for a few reasons. Firstly, it will strengthen the Pause community – you’ll get to form relationships and share ideas with people over a full three days. You can make new friends, do business, and share ideas with a richer network of fully-engaged attendees.

Secondly, it gives our attendees more opportunities to network. By simply spending more time at Pause, you’ll have more chances to meet more people. It’s simple maths! And thirdly, if you’re going to do something, you may as well do it right. Right? And attending every day of Pause Fest 2019 is, without a shadow of a doubt, right.

So what’s left? You need to go and nab your tickets, that’s what.
