National Forum & AGM

Due to a review of member feedback of the 2023 National Conference, in 2024 UniSport is transitioning to a forum format and implementing changes allowing the emphasis of member presentations, specialised workshops and discussion, and networking as a key event principle.

The UniSport National Forum unites university sport administrators and managers for networking opportunities and conversations surrounding issues that drive the university sport sector. The forum attracts over 120 university sport leaders, keynote speakers, university sport administrators and managers as well as representatives from international university sport federations, national sporting organisations and key university stakeholders. 

Alongside the forum the Annual UniSport Gala Dinner is held to celebrate the achievement of university student-athletes and sporting programs through the presentation of the Sports Awards.
