About the Conference

Where and When?

Thank you to all our 2021 Speakers, Sponsors & Exhibitors for their support. For all registered participants the Attendee Hub will remain open until September 30th 2021, who will be able to watch all Day 1 & 2 sessions on-demand and explore the Sponsor and Virtual Exhibitor Booths, as well as send them a message to connect.

The Excellence in Personal Injury and Disability Management Awards and Gala Dinner has been postponed by approximately one month from the original scheduled date of July 13. PIEF is planning to hold concurrent Gala Award Dinners across multiple capital cities to ensure as many people from our industry can come together and celebrate in person.

The Conference

The conference, held every two years, attracts delegates working in the personal injury and disability management industry from all across Australia.

It showcases initiatives that have achieved exceptional outcomes and industry best practice in motor accident (compulsory third party), workers’ compensation, disability and life insurance sectors. In 2021 the focus of our conference is Connect, Discover, Evolve.


The conference will provide delegates and sponsors an outstanding opportunity to make important industry connections, discover new practices and trends and showcase how the industry is evolving.

The 4 conference streams will highlight the continued importance of putting the client at the centre of all activities and initiatives, the many outstanding developments in mental health, well-being and recovery which assist in a return to life and work for those clients, as well as the continued innovation in injury management, including programs, practices and systems, which assist industry professionals to deliver client support.
