The Connecting Up Conference is a three-day interactive event that aims to help Australian not-for-profits get the most out of technology, training and strategy. 

First established in 2004, it is targeted at organisations who are interested in using technology and innovation to improve their impact and achieve better outcomes for the communities they serve.

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 the Connecting Up Conference can help.

2020 Theme

The 2020 Conference encompasses the theme of ‘’Evolve” and will inspire and empower not-for-profits and charities to enhance 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, not-for-profit 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.

The sector

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.
