After close consultation with our conference organiser and the DEA Board, we’ve made the difficult yet prudent decision to postpone the DEA national conference that was scheduled for 6-8 September in Sydney.

We recognise the situation in various states, dealing with an escalation of the COVID-19 outbreak. The health and safety of the community is of utmost importance. 

DEA can confirm that our conference will be held early next year, 28 February to 2 March at the Four Seasons Hotel in Sydney!

Expect stimulating and challenging presentations, panels and breakout sessions, with exhibitors and event partners to support your organisation.  

We are disappointed that we had to reschedule our conference. As you know, the DEA conference brings the disability employment sector together for thought-provoking, solutions-based discussions, constructive networking, recognition of best practice and catching up with each other, face to face.

Your registration will automatically be applied to our rescheduled conference. Your registration payment will be refunded if you are unable to attend our rescheduled conference.

We appreciate your understanding and support.
