2018 Aid Supplier Conference

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) is pleased to announce its Aid Supplier Conference will be held on Thursday 15 February 2018, once again in partnership with Australian National University. As in the previous year, the aim of the conference is to bring together government, commercial suppliers, non-government organisations, SMEs, academics and individuals engaged in or have an interest in international aid development.

The Conference will highlight partnerships in aid development procurement and policy. The event will create a forum for a diverse group from the international aid and development community to share ideas and insights, showcasing their work, and hear from DFAT officials about developments in the Australian aid program.

This is a free event for delegates from the aid development community.

We are now accepting expressions of interest.
