Welcome to the Annual SDA Conference and Events "Working Together" NDISDA Conferences & Developer Summits 2024.


Once more,  we are thrilled to bring together a diverse array of industry professionals, including Builders, Developers, Architects, SIL Providers, SDA Providers, Financiers, Investors, Law Firms, SDA Assessors, Consultants, Researchers, Regulators, and Associations.

Over the past 3 years, our events have consistently sold out across the country, creating a vibrant platform for transformative conversations, education, networking, and collaboration across disciplines.

We are delighted to kick off the year in Sydney, marking the beginning of our 16th Conference/Summit that will span across five cities in 2024. 


Our focus this year is on navigating the recent changes in the NDIS Final Report that significantly impact housing.

We'll delve into crucial research data concerning supply and demand dynamics, address challenges related to vacancy rates, and provide insights into the hurdles that Developers, Investors, Architects may encounter. Moreover, we will discuss regulatory updates and compliance requirements, emphasizing the importance of staying abreast of legal updates and best practice design.


Additionally, we recognize the vital role of SIL (Supported Independent Living) Providers, SDA Providers, Allied Health Professionals in the NDIS ecosystem. It is crucial to work collaboratively  and understand the challenges they face due to changes in the NDIS space that directly impact SDA. By fostering a deeper understanding of their needs and concerns, we can collectively identify solutions and create a more supportive environment for all stakeholders involved.

This collaborative approach is essential for driving positive change and ensuring the long-term sustainability and success of the SDA sector.


Our aim is to provide clear direction and guidance for navigating these changes, emphasizing “Working Together”, shared knowledge, and mutual support among all stakeholders.

As professionals in the SDA sector, we are stewards for the vulnerable individuals who are NDIS Participants.


We walk a fine line between profitability and social responsibility, and it's those who build businesses with participants in mind, while upholding integrity and ethical standards, who emerge as leaders and champions of positive change.

"Working Together" encapsulates our conference's essence perfectly. This conference is exclusively for those committed to upholding values, leveraging their professional expertise for the right reasons, and forging sustainable relationships that leave a lasting impact on participants, colleagues, regulators, investors, SIL Providers, SDA Providers, and Society.

If you align with these values and aspirations, we eagerly anticipate your attendance at this transformative event.

Together, let's build a future where integrity, collaboration, regulatory compliance, informed investment strategies, and social consciousness drive our industry forward, while supporting the needs of SIL Providers, SDA Providers, and all stakeholders in the NDIS ecosystem.
