Seminar / Conference
Adelaide Oval

Register soon for the Australian Insurance Lawyers Association (AILA) National Conference to be held 12-14 October 2016 at the Adelaide Oval.

As the name of the conference suggests the 2016 conference is all about the ‘Game Changers’ in the law and the insurance industry.

From the Hugh Rowell Memorial key note address to engaging and comprehensive panel discussions, the conference draws together eminent speakers and game changers in their own right, to provide their insights into topics and issues which are changing the game for all the players. The calibre of the speakers secured for the conference is exceptional and we are delighted this year to also offer dedicated insurance industry briefing sessions for conference delegates on Friday 14 October with a registration rate of $350 for that day.  

And what better venue to explore these themes than the ‘game changing’ Adelaide Oval? Starting with a cocktail function overlooking the majestic oval itself and all conference plenary sessions held in the modern and inviting conference facilities at the Adelaide Oval.  The conference dinner at the National Wine Centre will showcase the wine and produce that South Australia is famous for.
