Basketball New South Wales is proud to announce that its annual State Conference and 80th Birthday celebration will be held between the 9th – 11th, 2018 at the Mercure Centro, Port Macquarie.

Basketball NSW is excited to bring the State Conference to the Port Macquarie-Hastings region with the support from the Port Macquarie-Hastings Council in which over 98 basketball associations are invited to attend across Metro and Country New South Wales.

The Basketball NSW State Conference is targeted at affiliated member associations, boards of management, committee members, staff and volunteers. The State Conference will offer association delegates the opportunity to learn valuable skills and resources dedicated to enhancing the growth and development of basketball across New South Wales. All attendees will also have the chance to network with other association members across the state and share valuable knowledge to assist community cohesion.

This year’s State Conference theme is “Make the customer the hero of your story” and will be a constant focus across all proceedings over the weekend-long affair and state initiatives.  

The conference schedule will also include various keynote discussions focusing on everything from inclusion opportunities to infrastructure developments along with a large focus on open panel conversations.

In conjunction with the conference, there will be a trade and exhibition show, allowing our members’ ample opportunity to talk and meet with businesses and suppliers who service the sports industry followed by a cocktail party and an 80th birthday celebration dinner.

Basketball New South Wales will also be joined by Australian Sports Broadcaster, Tracey Holmes as the master of ceremonies for the weekend as well as other influential keynote speakers.
