About the event 

DealMaker Australia brings together nearly 300 of the best (and best-performing) professionals from our tight-knit group of advertisers and publishers for a day of content, conversations, cocktails and more. Join us in Sydney this August to connect, learn, grow, deal anddare we sayparty with your favourite industry peers. 

Hundreds of meetings take place at DealMaker, making this the perfect event to jumpstart new partnerships and rekindle old ones. There are many exciting changes this year - we've moved to Luna Park, DealSpace has been renamed Partner Palooza and we've even got a Ferris Wheel sponsorship up for grabs.

It turns out networking doesn’t have to feel like work. Start building close relationships that close big deals right at DealMaker Australia!
