COSBOA21 Summit

The Council of Small Business Organisations Australia (COSBOA) are very much looking forward to seeing you at the National Small Business Summit in September 2021 and are still currently planning for an in-person event at the Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour, 9-10 September.

We will continue to monitor the government regulations and will advise members and delegates of any changes by 6 August 2021, which will be made in the best interest of the health and safety for all participants. 

While we acknowledge the world of uncertainty we are all experiencing, we are still encouraging members to register for planning purposes and have outlined the various cancellation scenarios to assist you with your planning on our registration page.


A LOT has changed since the last time we were all able to meet face-to-face at the National Small Business Summit. The last year has had an enormous impact on small business across Australia, changing perspectives, policy and purpose. It is for that reason we urge you to join us at the COSBOA National Small Business Summit in Sydney, 9 – 10 September 2021.

Over two robust days we will hear from regulators, politicians, policy-makers and small business leaders, as we challenge the issues constraining the productivity of Australian small businesses.

The COSBOA Summit is your opportunity to make your voice heard, to influence the important policy issues for small business across digitisation and cybersecurity, pandemic policy: insurance, landlords and insolvency, industrial relations, mental health, competition, sustainability, banking and finance and regulation change.

Most of all we will hear the voice of small business people – find out about their experiences, how they are reviving, and what they need and demand from us to help them thrive in the future.

Let us learn, share, engage and represent our small business people with purpose!
