The 2018 Barossa Convention is an event steeped in in history and tradition which makes it South Australia’s premier event for tax professionals. In its 50th year, this event has been developed by a team of tax professionals who aim to bring you a program that is technically relevant and practical, and designed to meet the needs of tax professionals with a predominantly SME practice.

The Convention Organising Committee has brought together a diverse range of high-profile, expert presenters from across the profession to deliver the same top-quality technical sessions that have become a hallmark of our National Conventions.

The Tax Institute understands the impact that an event of this nature has on the environment, especially when printing delegate materials. We are excited to announce that The Tax Institute has an event app. This app is easy to use and contains program information, materials (technical papers and slides), evaluation forms and more. We encourage all delegates to download the app on their phone or tablet prior to this event. Once the materials are available, an email will be sent to delegates with access details (in the days leading into the event).
