Gambling Harm Conference

The Foundation hosted its third biennial conference in Geelong, Victoria from Monday 13 August to Wednesday 15 August, 2018.

The conference – 'Gambling Harm 2018: Taking Action for Change' – was held over three days and was a great success.

Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, and the conference well exceeded its previous delegate attendance numbers, with more than 400 national and international keynotes, speakers and delegates from over 120 organisations in attendance – all dedicated to reducing harm from gambling.

Conference delegates had access to three full days of more than 60 presentations, workshops and interactive sessions. Topics were presented during keynote addresses, as well as within 18 streams that delegates could choose to attend. To see the full conference program, visit the Gambling Harm Conference website.

This unique professional development opportunity was created for researchers and practitioners working in gambling harm prevention, treatment and support. It was designed to promote collaboration between agencies and organisations and make use of a variety of formats to share and explore experience, expertise and ideas.
