Welcome to LASA National Congress

AUSTRALIA’S BIGGEST AGE
SERVICES EVENT

LASA National Congress is a key fixture in the diaries of the leaders and
decision makers across the aged care industry. 

Now the biggest age services event in the region, LASA National Congress attracts over 1100 staff and service providers from across retirement living, home and community care and residential aged care.

As one of Australia’s fastest growing industries, delegate and exhibitor numbers are expected to continue to increase as they have in recent years.

CONGRESS LOCATION

GOLD COAST 9-12 OCTOBER

From the iconic Surfers Paradise beach to the dining precincts of Main Beach and Broadbeach and out to the lush, green hinterland, there’s a new experience waiting for you at every turn on the Gold Coast.

Theme parks, world-renowned beaches and year-round sunshine are just a few of the reasons 10.5 million visitors flock to this vibrant city each year. The Gold Coast Exhibition and Convention Centre is conveniently located just a short walk from Jupiters’ Hotel and Casino and a host of new and refurbished accommodation options in and around lovely Broadbeach.

CONGRESS THEME

IMAGINING AGE SERVICES:
NO BORDERS, NO BOUNDARIES

This year’s theme, “Imagining age services: no borders, no boundaries”, is about finding new ways of building a stronger age services industry to meet increasing demand. In the midst of significant reforms within aged care, increasing momentum for consumer-driven services creates new opportunities for age service providers. We have seen the power of competition disrupt other industries in unprecedented ways, overturning existing rules and regulation in favour of improved choice and quality. In the context of this new and evolving landscape it is time to imagine what age services looks like with no borders, no boundaries.

2015 ATTENDEE LIST

40%

New Delegates

In 2015, 1100 people attended and 40% of delegates (over 400 people) had never been to our National Congress before. That’s a lot of new people to meet and connections to make!

Now in its fifth year, LASA National Congress is seen by company executives, directors and managers as the leading age services event for thought-leadership, new ideas, networking, business management and education.

If you only attend one aged care event this year, LASA National Congress has to be it.
