Our history

Founded in 2011, Australia’s flagship conference for online community professionals connects local builders, thinkers, managers and makers with top international talent for two days of learning, collaboration, inspiration and outcomes.

Swarm grew out of the Australian Community Manager Roundtables in 2009, and was created by veteran community management leaders Venessa Paech and Alison Michalk to support and grow the industry.
