National Small Business Summit 2024

Australia’s must-attend event for anyone representing small business

Mark these dates in your diary to access and hear from politicians, regulators, senior policy makers, business influencers and association leaders who are shaping policy for small business in Australia.

The COSBOA Summit is your opportunity to make your voice heard, to influence the important policy issues for small business across workplace relations, compliance and regulation demands, jobs, training and skills, contract law and competition policy, energy costs, data insights and security and digital transformation.

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!


COSBOA is thrilled to launch the program for the 2024 National Small Business Summit.

Check out the hot topics, key debates and important Q and A’s that will fuel small business policy conversations next year.
