Welcome to the National Mediation Conference 2019

For tens of thousands of years, the area around modern Canberra has been a recognised meeting place for indigenous people. Where better for you to join us in 2019 a double celebration: the 25th anniversary of the National Mediation Conference, and the many people who have contributed to the resilience of the conference.

The conference will be an outstanding experience for everyone, be they newcomers to the mediation and DR sector, or those with extensive experience in the field. With a dual focus on the future of mediation in Australia, and the importance of evidence-based practice, this event promises to be stimulating and enjoyable in equal measure.

An opportunity for existing leaders and future leaders to share skills and ideas, the program for this national three-day mediation show-case will include a variety of presentations, discussions, workshops, and other extended activities. The conference is being designed to maximise contact among delegates, between delegates and presenters, and between delegates and our conference collaborators. The focus will be on learning, contributing, networking, and, befitting a birthday party, having fun.

We anticipate more than 500 delegates will attend the conference, representing the broad scope of coverage that is modern mediation in all its forms, and affiliated dispute resolution processes. That’s certainly a lot of party hats.

We look forward to your company in April 2019.
