About Qualcon 2016

Qualcon 2016 is an exciting opportunity for Australasian organisations and individuals as well as our neighbours in the Asia Pacific region to meet and share best practices in quality, productivity and business excellence. It will attract quality professionals due to Qualcon’s reputation as the leading Australian Quality Conference. The last Qualcon® in Adelaide, South Australia attracted over 150 Australian and International delegates and speakers from a wide range of industries including Defence, community, education, manufacturing and services sectors, business excellence, software & IT professionals. Qualcon 2016 is expected to maintain the Australian reputation for excellence, and with a bigger attendance.

Benefits to Delegates

The Conference will focus on practical and policy aspects with topics related to Innovation, Productivity, Quality Management, Business Excellence, Best Practice, Process Improvement, Governance and the quality principles embodied in ISO 9001:2015, AS 9100, ISO 31000 and other Service Industry Standards including ISO 17025 relating to NATA labs. Because Qualcon covers the spectrum of industries and contexts in which Quality management is practices, it provides fertile ground for cross-fertilisation of ideas and approaches.

The Conference will also provide an opportunity to discover new and innovative practices in quality, productivity and business excellence, helping us to meet our core values of excellence and innovation. Understanding advances and changes in these areas allows new areas of quality control and improvement to be considered and discussed within the business.
