Regions Rising is back for the third year in 2021! After a whirlwind 2020 where we pivoted to virtual events, we are hoping to bring back some in-person conferences to connect with those passionate about the prosperity of Regional Australia. We will also still be hosting some webinars, so keep your eye out for details! We’re kicking off our 2021 Regions Rising Events Series with the National Summit in Canberra on 17-18 March. Keynote presenters include Deputy Prime Minister the Hon Michael McCormack, ABC Chair Ita Buttrose AC OBE, and renowned economist Saul Eslake. We look forward to once again travelling around the country to key regional cities to engage directly with regional leaders, industry representatives, government, political leaders and the community sector on the most important opportunities and challenges facing regions.
