20th National Conference – SOLD OUT
The sold out 20th ASOFIA National Conference was held from 7-10 October, 2016 in the Barossa Valley, SA. This was a truly unique experience blending good food and wine, learning, development, business and networking.
The great debate for this conference focused on key industry issues and promoted open forum style discussions. The amazing line up of speakers included Marty Wilson who was MC at the Awards dinner and facilitator of the plenary sessions; and Mark Bunn & Glenn Cooper
our two keynote speakers. Once again the highlight of the conference was the gala dinner where presentations were made to the Interior Fitout award winners as well as the winner of the National Apprentice of the Year award.

Our conference theme ‘Opportunity Through Adversity’ which focused on providing ways for us all to look differently at our current environment to bring about opportunity through a change of approach, mindset and practice and what better place to do this than on beautiful Hamilton Island, situated on the edge of the Great Barrier Reef and one of the 74 Whitsunday Islands.
Our delegates were inspired by our guest speakers, Paul Wade – Former Socceroos Captain, and Jason Clarke. Attendees took advantage of the networking opportunities, attended the Gala Dinner and saw our industries best be applauded at the Interior Fitout Awards and celebrated our up & coming stars with a presentation to the National Apprentice of the Year.
