The 2nd Annual National Health & Innovation Precincts Summit is set to take place on 6-7 December at the Aerial UTS Function Centre, Sydney.

This is a national event that explores how we build successful, health and innovation precincts in Australia.

The event’s purpose is to bring stakeholders together to network and connect, share insights, and best practices, exchange ideas and discuss solutions, showcase innovations, and drive future collaboration and growth.

2022 marked the inaugural year of the National Health and Innovation Precincts Summit and the feedback we had was tremendous. The event welcomed over 200 attendees and over 70 speakers from across the country and around the globe.

For 2023, we’re eager to engage more exciting health and innovation precincts and build upon the success of last year’s experience.
