NIBA is pleased to be hosting the 2021.2 NIBA Convention, starting in four weeks’ time, and spread over three weeks to allow you to attend your local state event and access the full program virtually.

We kick off in Adelaide on Monday 7 February, followed by Melbourne on Tuesday 8 February. We then move to Perth on Monday 14 February and then to Brisbane on Wednesday 16 February. Our finale and Gala Dinner will be held in Sydney on Monday 21 February, rounding off a stellar program.

‘’While we continue to navigate this phase of the pandemic, it’s really important to the NIBA Board and myself that we can offer our members and industry supporters the opportunity to attend this important event’’ said Philip Kewin, NIBA Chief Executive Officer.

‘’I want to reassure our members that the Convention will be conducted in a COVID-19 safe manner. We have designed the program to enable members to come together in person with their colleagues and industry peers at their state-based sessions and access the full program via the virtual platform”, added Kewin.

‘’I encourage all members to register, if they haven’t already done so, as there is a lot to be learnt and gained from this event’’, he added.
