Join us and be a part of this highly anticipated annual event in the not-for-profit sector and expand your network in the not-for-profit community.
The Connecting Up Conference is a three-day interactive event that has continued to grow in size and quality since it was first established in 2004. It is targeted at not-for-profit organisations who are interested in innovation, change and finding solutions to enhance engagement and impact within their communities and achieve outcomes through technology, training and improved operational and organisational efficiencies. As technology and the digital landscape continue to evolve rapidly and the competition becomes stronger, not-for-profit organisations need to continue to innovate to keep up with the changes. This is where we help.
2019 Theme Transform
The 2019 Conference encompasses the theme of ‘’Transform” and will inspire and empower NFPs and charities to transform their organisations through technology and 21st century best-practice to fulfill their missions. By coming together to learn from sector leaders, technology providers and peers, NFP organisations across Australia can be educated and inspired to have a powerful impact into the future.
The conference is an excellent opportunity for not-for-profit organisations to learn from inspiring international and local speakers, engage and share with other delegates and walk away with new insights to help their organisation drive greater social change.

Not-for-profit Leadership Breakfast - Thursday 9 May (optional program at additional cost)

Who will attend
The 2018 Connecting Up Conference in Brisbane was attended by more than 450 delegates from not-for-profit organisations across Australia. The event attracts everyone from from CEOs, to Board members, directors and managers, project coordinators and staff and volunteers working in areas ranging from IT, to digital media, community engagement, marketing, communications, fundraising and more.
In 2019, we are expecting around 500 delegates to attend the conference across all programs.
The Australian not-for-profit sector is diverse and consists of organisations of varying sizes. Connecting Up wants to ensure that as many organisations as possible are represented. The various categories of not-for-profit organisations listed in the Connecting Up Directory illustrates the breadth of the sector, and we encourage broad participation at our annual conference.
