  • Future of the sector and technology

  • About Third Sector Live

    Each year Third Sector gathers the who’s who in the not-for-profit (NFP) sector enabling a unique opportunity for leadership, education and knowledge sharing with Australia’s leading sector executives and decision makers.

    This year we have rebranded from Expo to LIVE to reflect on other elements of the event, as Third Sector LIVE is not only an expo, but also a platform to share challenges, achievements and opportunities with those in the sector.

    Themed ‘Getting Down to Business’, we want delegates to walk away informed, challenged and inspired to enhance their own personal careers and or the powerful work of the NFP community.

    Third Sector LIVE will also include the inaugural Awards night to celebrate the achievements of our leaders and the impact that they have on the sector.

    Anticipated number of delegates: 500-600.
