Welcome to the IAP2 Australasia Conference 2024: Innovate to Elevate, the preeminent Community and Stakeholder Engagement event in Australasia for engagement and communications professionals.

The event provides a rare opportunity for community engagement professionals, practitioners and decision makers to gain fresh insights, exchange innovative ideas, and celebrate remarkable professional accomplishments.  The Conference serves as a vital platform for idea-sharing, fostering valuable professional connections, strengthening shared values, and propelling the profession’s standing throughout the Australasia region.

The IAP2 Australasia Conference is organised by the International Association for Public Participation (IAP2), which seeks to promote and improve the practice of public participation or community and stakeholder engagement.

The three-day event provides a rare opportunity for community engagement professionals, practitioners, and decision makers to gather to learn new ideas and celebrate professional success, and of course valuable networking opportunities, and social functions, including the fabulous IAP2A Core Values Awards Gala Dinner.

We look forward to welcoming you to the conference in September!
