About this event

Full Conference Programme

Venue:  Sofitel Hotel Darling Harbour, Sydney, Australia

The STEP Australia 2022 Conference will be held at a luxury Sydney hotel, the Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour Hotel, commencing with welcome drink’s on the evening of Sunday 27 March 2022, followed by two full days of high-quality presentations. During the conference STEP will be hosting a Delegate Dinner on Monday 28 March 2022 and a Post-Conference Social Event on Tuesday 29 March 2022 to conclude the conference.

Programme Focus

This STEP Conference, bringing together leading minds in trusts and estates from across STEP Australia and beyond, is not to be missed. The programme is designed to enable practitioners to update their knowledge of recent developments, and to hear about cutting edge industry trends. The various presentations will review and comment on the challenges posed by current trends, including digitising death, lost trust deeds, comparative state land taxes, family law implications of trusts, contested inter vivos transfers, the long arm of NSW notional estate laws, advising incoming migrants and outgoing residents, spouses and family provision, digital assets, and Chinese investment within Australia. Included in the programme is a panel of experts, who will also discuss "Trusts and Succession Challenges in the Digital Age", as well as our dynamic duo commenting on "Is Succession Law Succeeding? A Long View". The programme provides an unparalleled opportunity to network with some of the foremost Australian trust and estate practitioners.


Note: We have planned this conference in a COVID-normal world and depending on any local restrictions that may apply at the time of the conference, some of the speakers may need to present virtually and some last minute changes to the order of speakers as they appear on the program may occur.
