Geelong, 13–15 August 2018

The Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation is delighted to host its third biennial conference from 13 to 15 August 2018. The plenary session will be held at Geelong library on the morning of Monday, 13 August, with the remainder of the conference a few streets away at Deakin University and The Pier Restaurant.

Gambling Harm 2018: Taking Action for Change will bring together national and international keynotes, speakers and delegates dedicated to preventing and reducing harm from gambling in the community.

The new conference name was chosen to reflect the fundamental need for partnership and collaboration across our work. A capacity building theme will be explored through five streams: gambling in aboriginal communities; lived experience; public health and gambling; research and practice; and regional, rural and diverse communities.

Please also join us at the conference dinner which will be held at The Pier Restaurant on the evening of Tuesday 14 August.

The conference will offer something for all practitioners working in the field and will make use of a variety of formats to share and explore experience, expertise, and ideas.
