The conference is the leading platform for regional leaders and decision makers to come together to advance the future of Australia's regions.

The SEGRA steering committee is seeking expressions of interest from individuals and organisations seeking to participate in the conference as a speaker or discussant.

The conference provides a key opportunity for regional organisations to highlight their ideas and examples of effective and innovative regional development projects on a national platform.
