Info Salons: Leading event technology company.
Part of global experience group Freeman, Info Salons is a leading event technology company, developing and delivering state of the art registration of events and data management technology, and other innovative solutions for event organisers and exhibitors.
Founded in 1990, Info Salons has been the technology backbone of some of Australia’s biggest and most high-profile events, including the 2000 Olympic Games held in Sydney.

Transforming 30 years of legacy infrastructure
Info Salons’ almost 30 years in the industry meant that there was a lot of legacy technology under the bonnet. As with many leading organisations, the need to stay ahead combined with a lack of bandwidth to change core systems meant the company was forced to move forward by building on top of their old
infrastructure, with only functional enhancements where it made sense.
The archaic nature of infrastructure and processes meant that it was taking the Development team up to 6 weeks to deploy a new release.
Digital Transformation in 6 months
In early 2019, Accelera was engaged to provide a 5-day review of all existing applications, the environment, architecture and tooling, with the aim of supporting a first phase project of revamping their CI/CD automation and development workflow.
During this discovery phase, the teams quickly realised that the scope of the project needed to be broadened in order to support their transformational plans.
After an in-depth analysis of the overall environment, Accelera devised a plan that could be categorised into three core areas:
2nd Generation Cloud Transformation
DevOps and CI/CD Implementation
Monolithic to Containerisation

It can take an organisation months if not years to realise the benefits of their digital investments. Working with Accelera we were able to see results from day one. From shining a light on gaps, to providing a new perspective, to delivering an outstanding digital platform, and above all being a genuine partner that just gets’ it.
We have incredibly talented technical people at Info Salons, and leveraging Accelera’s expertise we were able to change mindsets and bring the best out of everyone. We look forward to working with Accelera on many more projects ahead.”
Chief Technology Officer (CTO)
With a newfound confidence in the technology, processes and ability to tackle disruptive change, Info Salons is working on the next phases of its Digital Transformation strategy. Accelera continues to be a core technology partner, providing the company with the technical expertise and strategic advice to deliver on their ambitious plans.
During the next phase Accelera and Info Salons will be working together to identify new opportunities, whether that is leveraging business intelligence, strengthening international strategy or building out new product lines. Info Salons has the foundation to drive effective and strategic change with Accelera at their side.
