IBECC 2016 is Australia's premier Indigenous business and economic conference, hosted by Centre for Social Impact UWA and the UWA School of Indigenous Studies.
Since the first IBECC in 2011, the Indigenous business, enterprise and corporations sector has grown in size and scope despite the many challenges it has faced. The Australian government's Indigenous Procurement Policy has resulted in increased demand for Indigenous business, creating significant new opportunities. Native Title groups continue to develop economic opportunities from Indigenous Land Use Agreements and other sources. Indigenous innovation and entrepreneurship is stronger than ever, touching all parts of the economy. Across many of the Closing the Gap indicators, however, Australia is not making the kind of progress we all want to see. Examining the links between the Indigenous economy and social change has been an ongoing theme of IBECC since it began. The Conference also explores options for strengthening Indigenous business education.
Collaboration is a fundamental part of supporting the health and growth of the Indigenous economy, of businesses and enterprises, and of communities. Through a uniquely integrated program of strong academic contributions and lessons learned in practice, IBECC 2016 is your chance to learn from case studies and research, connect with others, and share your own experiences.
Is my registration/ticket transferrable? What is the refund policy?
If, after booking, you are unable to attend, you are welcome to nominate someone else to attend in your place at no additional cost. We will offer a 50% refund on cancellations prior to Friday 2 September 2016. However, regrettably after this date, no refund will be offered. Please advise substitutions in writing to email@example.com before Tuesday 29 November 2016 to ensure a correct name tag will be available at the registration desk.
Why isn't my student discount code working?
A limited number of free or discounted registrations were offered to selected UWA students. If the code is no longer working, it indicates the allocation of free registrations has been exhausted. As a student, you are still eligible for the low-cost student registration or you may apply for a scholarship at www.ibecc.org.au/scholarships
