Events and webinars

Regions Rising

Regions Rising is the Regional Australia Institute’s (RAI’s) national event series, running since 2019.

It is an engagement program, made up of in-person and virtual events,  through which the RAI presents its research on regional issues to promote dialogue and thought leadership.

The Regions Rising event series brings together industry experts, economists, regional leaders, government, political leaders, academics and the community sector to deliver the latest information on the key pillars affecting regional communities - including jobs and skills, housing, population, liveability, productivity and resilience.

In 2024 we are heading to key regional cities across the country in Northern Territory (NT), Queensland (QLD), and South Australia (SA).

Regions Rising is sponsored by NBN Co and Elders, we thank them for their valued support.

   

Membership events 

Once a quarter, we bring each of our membership groups (the Regional Australia Alliance (RAA) and the Regional Australia Council (RAC)) together for exclusive meetings hosted by the RAI. These sessions provide opportunities to connect with relevant Government Ministers, regional leaders, and prominent industry voices.
