About AAGE Conferences

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

AAGE 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 ideas and solutions 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.

Plenty of networking opportunities are offered to delegates, including discussion groups held during the course of the day sessions, a Social Evening held on the first night of the conference and our annual Gala Dinner held on the second night of the conference. 

The annual black tie Gala Dinner incorporates the annual AAGE Graduate Recruitment Industry Awards (AGRIAs) presentation, aimed to reward and recognise excellence in the graduate recruitment industry.

Employer delegates also have the opportunity to attend the optional Pre-Conference Leader or Practitioner Seminar for $50 + GST, to be held concurrently on Wednesday 30th October at 9.00am. The Practitioner session is for those new to the industry (0-2 years' experience) and the Leader session is for those responsible for managing strategic direction (2+ years' experience).

2024 marks the 36th year that the AAGE has hosted a Graduate Recruitment & Development Conference in Australia.

“Such a friendly group of people. I was extremely impressed with how well it all came together for such a large event there must have been a lot of hard work behind the scenes - thank you for a great time!"
