Disability Employment Australia’s Annual Conference is presented by Disability Employment Australia. This year’s conference will take place from 6-7 September 2017 in Brisbane.
Disability Employment Australia’s Annual Conference is Australasia’s premier conference for managers, aspiring managers, practitioners, and academics working in or with the Disability Employment Services sector.
Last year’s conference was held in Melbourne on the 10th & 11th of August 2016.
As part of its ongoing commitment to industry development and growth, Disability Employment Australia provides delegates with opportunities to think, question and respond to a range of critical issues in ways that are meaningful to their organisations, people with disability, employers and the industry more broadly.
This year’s conference will examine the future of disability employment and the new DES program. The conference will be guided by four themes. These themes are choice and control, competition and contestability, employer engagement, and service quality.

For two days the DEA Conference will guide you through capacity building aligned to both the new DES and the broader landscape of disability employment in Australia.
The conference programme will include debates, research and innovative practices across the following areas:
