COSBOA22 Summit

Due to the evolving COVID-19 situation, COSBOA has made the decision to postpone the National Small Business Summit until 9 & 10 February 2022.
For the safety of our team, members, attendees, sponsors and speakers we have made the difficult decision to postpone the COSBOA Summit from September 2021 until February 2022.

We have not made this decision lightly and we want to reassure you that we are committed to hosting small business leaders in-person at a live event. We know you value the opportunity to meet and hear from regulators, senior politicians, Association leaders and policy makers and we greatly look forward to connecting face-to-face again early next year.

Over the coming months we will continue to prepare a fantastic program themed on perspectives, policy and purpose for small business – watch this space for updates!


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 February 2022.

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!
