FIA Conference 2021
24-26 February

For full details on the 2021 Conference and to register, please visit the conference website here.

 

The world is changing. Fundraising is changing. And the FIA Conference is changing too.

In 2021, the FIA Conference is going virtual but with a twist!

With the demand for services at an all-time high, more than ever we need to be effective, decisive and resilient so that our organisations can survive and thrive.

FIA Conference 2021 will be more accessible than ever. And it will give you the opportunity to discover new ideas as well as reconnect with colleagues and suppliers – both virtually and physically! 

Your own virtual world:

  • Access to over 60 sessions designed for fundraisers – by fundraisers
  • A virtual conference platform that is out of this world – not your typical Zoom!
  • Tune in live or watch in your own time over the next six months
  •  Access all sessions – no need to choose and miss
  • Networking opportunities based on areas of interest or specialisations
  • Appointments and meetings with delegates and exhibitors
  • Virtual celebration of the FIA Awards for Excellence in Fundraising

Combined with the physical world:

  • An option to attend a face-to face-hub in your local area, where you will have the opportunity to work with your peers to solve some of the sector’s most pressing issues.
  • Celebrate the FIA Awards for Excellence together (in a COVID-safe way) with your colleagues.  

Benefits to you and your fundraising: 

  • Unprecedented access to international speakers and Australian experts giving you a broad and deep world view on fundraising.
  • Lower registration fees (and no extra travel and accommodation costs!) saving you and your organisation money during these challenging times.
  • Advance your learning and skills just when you need it most!
