Now the biggest age services event in the region, LASA National Congress attracts over 1150 staff and service providers from across retirement living, home and community care and residential aged care.
LASA National Congress is a key fixture in the diaries of the leaders and decision makers across the aged care industry.
As one of Australia’s fastest growing industries, delegate and exhibitor numbers are expected to continue to increase as they have in recent years.
Due to the scale of Congress, we will be returning to the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre next year, as it offers us the right mix if presentation space within close proximity to the exhibition, allowing for further expansion of the program as our industry continues to grow.

I attended the LASA Congress during the week. It was my first time there and I found it very interesting listening to the politicians / other operators / financiers / lawyers / architects / etc.
Congratulations by the way to the LASA team who put the event together. They did a great job.
An extremely well organised event that I know everyone I spoke to really enjoyed and got a lot out of!
