ACCC/AER Regulatory Conference

Held every winter, this conference brings together industry participants, policy makers, academics and regulators from around the world to hear and discuss the latest ideas about the theory and practice of regulation.

2020 conference

The 2020 ACCC & AER regulatory conference, scheduled to be held on 30–31 July this year, has been cancelled due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Regulatory Conference provides an opportunity for experts and engaged members of the regulatory community to come together and it is a highlight of the ACCC/AER’s year.

Sadly, in 2020, with the significant travel restrictions in place and the potential impact on our staff, speakers, attendees and community’s health we took the difficult decision to cancel the conference.

We hope to be in a position to hold the 2021 Regulatory Conference next winter and will keep our Regulatory Community updated on this event as soon as we are in a position to do so.

As part of preparing for our 2021 and future conferences, we would be interested in your views on face-to-face versus an online forum for the conference and would appreciate you contacting us at to share your thoughts.
