Visit Australia for National Brain Injury Conference

Brain Injury Australia’s ninth such event will be held in Adelaide in September 2024



A key event internationally in the field of brain injury is to be held in Australia next year, and is inviting anyone with lived experience of brain injury to submit a presentation for the occasion. 

Brain Injury Australia’s ninth National Brain Injury Conference will be held at Adelaide Oval from September 24 to 26, 2024 – with the support of the Government of South Australia, The University of South Australia and Brain Injury South Australia.

Founded in 1986, Brain Injury Australia is the nation’s peak advocacy organisation representing the over 700,000 Australians living with a brain injury. Its annual National Brain Injury Conference has become one of the premier learning and development events on the international disability calendar – driving improvements in services and supports for people living with a brain injury, their families and carers.

Consistently ranked as one of the top ten most liveable cities in the world, Adelaide is perfectly positioned between the Adelaide Hills in the east and its beaches to the west and is surrounded by more than two thousand acres of parklands.

With plenty of award-winning restaurants and bars serving the best of Australian food and wine combined with a teeming arts, events and festivals calendar, there is plenty for the Conference delegate to see, do and taste.

The Conference’s Organising Committee invites people with lived experience of brain injury, family members and carers, researchers, clinicians, allied health professionals, service providers and policymakers to submit proposals for presentations on everything brain injury.
