2016 AAGE ConferenceThe 28th Annual AAGE Graduate Recruitment & Development Conference

Crown Conference Centre, 8 Whiteman Street, Southbank, Victoria, Australia

The AAGE hosts an annual conference, bringing together employers from around the nation to learn, develop and network together in an energetic and stimulating environment.

Our conferences allow delegates to focus on broader issues impacting on the industry, to have the opportunity to learn from industry experts, discover the latest trends and to discuss solutions and methods in which to handle industry challenges.

The conference format encourages the open sharing of knowledge and experience, which serves to elevate the graduate recruitment industry as an increasingly important, strategic part of a business.

We expect around 300 delegates to register each year, including approximately 100 different employer organistions.
