AUSTRALIA'S GIANT FESTIVAL OF WORKPLACE HEALTH & WELLNESS!

WELCOME TO THE NEW WORLD OF WORK! 
Covid-19 has dramatically changed the way we work. The health, wellbeing and safety of employees is now a top concern. Forward-thinking organisations are at the forefront of what is genuinely a revolution in the workplace. And that now encompasses those working-from-home and in the field. Now into its 4th year, no other event matches Workplace Wellness Festival’s profile, breadth of content and sheer audience size.

BACK TO SYDNEY’S ICC
Workplace Wellness Festival is returning to face to face delivery, bringing together over 100 expert speakers; the industry’s top vendors; and thousands of business professionals all on one giant expo floor, creating a dynamic all-day traffic flow for exhibitors. This is a place to learn, have fun and do business.
