Connect started as a grassroots event and this past year saw it evolve into a staple for the Indigenous business community.
Event attendance multiplies year on year, with state of the art production and great entertainment like Dan Sultan.
We are proud to be championing supplier diversity and Supply Nation is one of the highlights of our year.
We engage Australia’s top suppliers to deliver the two-day Connect experience, comprising of a conference, tradeshow and gala awards dinner.
The conference features 11 sessions, spanning a range of topics from social media to sustainable procurement policies and delivered by industry specialists and thought leaders.
The tradeshow gathers over 110 indigenous businesses under one roof providing them with a unique networking opportunity and soapbox sessions. It’s the largest of its kind in Australia.
The gala awards dinner celebrates the achievements of Supply Nation’s corporate and government members and Indigenous businesses. These awards are Australia’s highest recognition of organisations and individuals who have successfully advanced supplier diversity in Australia.
Supply Nation strives to connect indigenous businesses with large corporates and government agencies to foster a prosperous business environment in the community.
Connect is their flagship event and brings together businesses from all industries, from banking and construction to hospitality and recruitment.
The team was tasked to take the event to the next level – better production, technology, catering and overall guest experience.
