Welcome to the IHHC 2021 Conference overview

Each year the IHHC hosts a National, and at regular intervals an International Conference bringing together delegates from a variety of health and aged care organisations.

Delegates include Support Service Managers, Foodservice Managers, Executive Chefs, Cleaning, Laundry and Environmental Services Managers and other professionals engaged in delivering a variety of services to the Health and Aged Care Industry. With this in mind, the conference is a unique opportunity for you and your organisation to connect with our delegates.

The Organising Committee is committed to engaging with delegates through an energising and informative program of speakers, covering a wide variety of topics relevant to our industry, and facilitating networking and business opportunities for delegates, supporters and exhibitors through an extensive trade exhibition and a dynamic program of social events.

We look forward to your participation in this premier industry event, and to welcoming you to Brisbane in September 2021!
