The City of Swan will be hosting the 2016 National Economic Development Conference from October 5-7 at the Mandoon Estate & Homestead Brewery in Perth’s picturesque Swan Valley. It is the first time the National Economic Development Conference has been held in Western Australia. The theme of the conference is "Investing in Collaboration; Shared Goals, Strong Partnerships and Inspired Leadership".

The three-day conference is expected to attract more than 200 delegates including economic development practitioners from both interstate and overseas; and representatives from across all levels of government. As well as various aligned organisations from within WA.

This year’s conference will feature a compelling program of well-known and regarded thought-leaders carefully selected for their knowledge, expertise and ability to encourage a robust dialogue around the conference’s two central themes, which are:
• Local Government leading the way in economic development; and
• Collaborating to achieve economic and infrastructure priorities.
The 2016 National Economic Development Conference will also include a one-day intensive Masterclass focused on why university partnerships are essential to achieve regional growth and prosperity.

Delegates will be offered site visits to a number of innovative economic development projects in the Perth metropolitan region in addition to the conference.

The Annual National Economic Development Awards for Excellence will be just one of many outstanding opportunities for business and professional networking at 2016 NEDC. Other events will include a Welcome Cocktail Party, Twilight Markets and Conference Dinner. Selected government and industry organisations are also given the opportunity to exhibit at the Conference.

Attendance at the Full Conference includes Conference Day 1 & 2, Welcome Event, Twilight Markets, EDA Gala Awards Dinner.
