Reporter 4 minute read

The theme for the Finance Brokers Association of Australia’s annual conference will be “evolution”, as the association marks its silver anniversary.

The FBAA’s National Industry Conference 2018 will once again be held at Sea World on the Gold Coast and will celebrate the association’s 25th anniversary.

The theme for the event, which will take place on Friday, 16 November, will be “evolution”. 

The conference will focus on changes to the industry, looking at technology, consumer behaviour and regulation.

A representative from ASIC will provide a regulatory update and industry representatives will discuss the direction of the industry off the back of the financial services royal commission.

The conference will once again be followed by the Gala Dinner and Awards of Supremacy, with the Firstmac after-party taking place following the evening festivities.

Speaking of the event, FBAA executive director Peter White said: “This year’s theme is ‘evolution’, and without sounding like a cliché, I think we can accurately say that we are at a time of great change, and the industry must evolve if we are to grow stronger.” 

He added: “This is a conference for all industry professionals, and is attended by many who are not FBAA members.

“It really has become an event you can’t miss, and those who do regret it.”

Mr White added that the “amazing weekend away” was also family-friendly, with the association putting on child-care facilities during the gala dinner. 

“Last year, we had over 180 families come and enjoy Sea World, and we offer child-care facilities during the gala dinner, so it really is something for the entire family.

“And don’t think of the gala dinner as being remotely similar to anything you’ve experienced before; it’s a dinner with entertainment like no other where we hire the entire Movie World theme park.” 

The FBAA conference is free to members, but non-members can purchase tickets for the event.
