AFIF is once again looking forward to welcoming you to this year’s AFIF National Conference and Gala Dinner, to be held at the
Hyatt Place Melbourne, Essendon Fields, Victoria 3041.

The event will begin with a Welcome Cocktail Reception on Thursday evening, May 23rd, with the main Plenary Sessions of the Business Program held throughout Friday 24th May 2019.

The event will conclude with our traditional Industry Gala Dinner on the evening of the 24th May 2019.

AFIF has responded to members’ feedback to continue the same popular format we delivered last year, namely a One Day Business Program focussed on providing vital, topical content, with speakers and panels tackling issues and latest updates that members need to understand.

The Program will also have subjects that deal with related matters affecting all of business and include the near to medium-term futuristic topics that will soon be commonplace.

We recommend this Program and the event for you to consider either a combined Day/Dinner package or to attend the day Business Program only.

If you would also like to consider a Sponsorship and/or Trade Exhibition package, please download the Sponsorship and Exhibition Prospectus.
