Important to Note

Organisational Pass

We offer a limited number of discounted passes for organisations, which are $220 for up to ten people. Please select this option in the registration process if you would like to to register as an organisation. To ensure your spot in sessions with limited capacities, we ask that a representative from the organisation emails csi-events-business@uwa.edu.au with any specific session preferences. Please note - if we do not receive these individual session preferences we are unfortunately unable to guarantee members from your group a spot in every desired session.

Choosing Sessions

You will be required to choose sessions you wish to attend during the registration process. Please note this may take a few minutes (especially if you are registering for several people). It is important this is recorded so the Festival organisers can manage venue capacity and your safety. Some room capacities are limited, so if you cannot attend a particular session for any reason please advise us of the change so we can make your spot available for others.

Print-at-home Ticket

Please print your ticket and bring along to the Festival so the event staff can guide you to the correct rooms for your preferred sessions.

Plastic Free

Please bring your own water bottle and help us go 'plastic free' for the Social Impact Festival 2017, as part of Plastic Free July.

Getting There

The UWA Business School is a state-of-the-art facility situated at the south end of The University of Western Australia Crawley Campus. Located next to the Swan River and surrounded by native trees, the Business School building has been designed to make the most of its natural surroundings and provides a calming and relaxed atmosphere. Take a short stroll down to the river in the breaks or just enjoy the view while sitting in the lounge areas located around the building.

The University of Western Australia (UWA) is a 10 minute drive from the Perth CBD. The UWA Business School can be accessed by car using Hackett Entrance 4. Please refer to the UWA Campus Map and UWA Parking Areas Map. Parking is free in yellow student permit bays on Festival days, due to the vacation period. Ticketed visitor parking is also available in the Business School car park (P9) and the Royal Perth Yacht Club.

UWA can also be accessed by public transport, but please note it will take approximately 12 minutes to walk from the bus stop on Stirling Highway to the Business School. Please refer to UWA's Public Transport information.

Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the first session of your choice and check into the registration desk in the Business School foyer.
