Invitation to Sponsor the ALERA National Conference

The Future of Employment Relations & Work: Sustainability, Productivity & Inclusion in an age of Artificial Intelligence, Digitization & the Gig Economy 15-16 October 2021 – Melbourne.

We invite you to sponsor the ALERA National Conference. The Conference will be held at Novotel on Collins on 15th & 16th October 2021. This is an ideal opportunity for your organisation to benefit from exposure to conference participants and potential participants, which could help to raise your profile and reputation, and expand your networks. The conference will include leading national and international speakers as well as delegates from around Australia and overseas. 

ALERA is an independent, non­partisan association which encourages research, discussion and debate on a wide range of issues affecting employment relations. The Association welcomes members involved in, studying or interested in industrial, labour or employment relations, labour law and human resources. 

ALERA's objective is to organise and foster discussion, research, education and publication within the field of workplace relations. ALERA is governed by an Executive Committee of representatives from its affiliated State and Territory societies, including the Industrial Relations Society of Victoria (IRSV), which is hosting this conference. 


ALERA brings together people from academia, consulting, employers, governments, the legal profession, unions and other fields.

These people work to contribute to the promotion of better workplace relations through ALERA affiliates’ newsletters, training, lectures, workshops and an ALERA biennial conference. Participation facilitates an exchange of opinions, an understanding of different points of view and new friendships, which can all help to create goodwill and understanding in the field of workplace relations. ALERA (then called the Industrial Relations Society of Australia) began in the 1950s. One of its first initiatives was to launch the Journal of Industrial Relations. 

ALERA is affiliated to the International Labour and Employment Relations Association (ILERA). 

WHY SPONSOR? Apart from showcasing your organisation, sponsors are provided with opportunities to interact with the delegates; a hallmark of the ALERA conference is the convivial spirit.
