DSC Annual NDIS Conference 2024

The national conference for the disability support sector.

26-27 March • ICC Sydney & Online

The NDIS event of the year is back – and now it’s in March.

While every year is a big one in the NDIS, 2024 is shaping up to be the biggest yet. The Disability Royal Commission and NDIS Review are proposing massive changes to the way NDIS supports are structured, delivered and regulated. They’re rethinking everything – from early intervention to psychosocial supports, from provider registration to scheme navigation. 

There is just so much to get our heads around. So, what better way to make sense of it all than to come together with the decision makers and our networks in the industry? 

Across two days of big-picture thinking, we’ll begin to reimagine the NDIS and seek answers to the question everyone is asking – “What’s next?” – for our jobs, our organisations and most importantly, people with disability.

What you’ll gain

With the NDIS Review released, 2024 will be a year of very significant change. With a focus on the big picture, our program will capture the key developments to provide you with take away ideas, insights and strategies.

  • Find clarity in the confusion – these are important but confusing times, this is our chance to make sense of it together. 

  • Reimagine the NDIS and ask the big questions – what would it take to create a more inclusive society, strengthen quality and safeguarding, and adapt our business models for change? 

  • Be “in the know” — tap into wisdom and emerging insights from the biggest conference in the sector.

  • Build connections — last year we had over 2000 people attend, and this year we’re expecting even more. Rub shoulders with sector leaders, make new connections and rekindle old friendships.

  • Be inspired — bust into work on Monday morning full of game-changing ideas. 

And of course, reflect and recharge – take a few days out of your day-to-day grind to be entertained, engaged and inspired.

The NDIS event of the year will be held in Sydney on March 26th - 27th.

Why the change of conference dates from July to March? It’s simple, so you can unpack these massive changes, sooner, and hear from the key decision makers to find out what’s really going on.. 

The NDIS National Conference will be held at the stunning International Convention Centre, Darling Harbour, Sydney. 

Online tickets are also available.
