The Biennial Conference of the National Federation of Australia Japan Societies has again been postponed another 12 months to September 2022.

16-18 September 2022

The decision was made to avoid domestic border uncertainty in 2021 and increase the possibility that participants from Japan may be able to attend should international borders open up in 2022.


The host city for 2022 will be Adelaide, South Australia. A conference committee comprising of representatives from the Japan Australia Friendship Association, the Australia Japan Association of South Australia and the Australia Japan Business Council of South Australia has been established to oversee the preparations.

The conference will focus around the rejuvenated North Terrace hub of culture, education and government in Adelaide with UniSA and the Playford Hotel being two of the key venues.

The conference promises to showcase the stories of South Australias relationship with Japan including premium food and beverage, manufacturing, sport, cultural links, education, government ties and the exciting potential of the recently announced Australian Space Agency.

Attractive accommodation packages from the Playford Hotel and Mercure Hotel will be available for conference delegates.

Further updates regarding the conference will be provided later this year.
