The Australian Centre for Entrepreneurship Research Exchange (ACERE) Conference is the premier Australian-based annual conference dedicated to the growth, support and promotion of entrepreneurship research and practice. It is designed to be a highly developmental and professionally rewarding experience for all delegates. Featuring high-calibre researchers from throughout the world, it’s a stand-out fixture on the academic and professional development calendar.
ACERE is organized by the Australian Centre for Entrepreneurship Research (ACE) at Queensland University of Technology. The conference usually rotates to different locations, involving a local co-host.
The 2017 Conference venue will be a little different to previous years. The main conference program will be held at NAB’s ‘The Village’ – a new innovative space for business customers and community partners to connect, learn and work. The location is in the Docklands in the centre of Melbourne’s CBD, and just a 5 minute walk from Melbourne’s major transport hub, Southern Cross Station.
We are proud to be co-hosting the 2017 conference with RMIT University. We also welcome The Australian Centre for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies at the QUT Business School, and The UQ Business School as award sponsors.
As always the ACERE Conference is an annual meeting of entrepreneurship researchers from Australia and around the world – a community of researchers who believe that sharing their current research and their expertise helps build entrepreneurship as a field of research and a force to build a better world.
But also it is a social gathering, of old and new friends, an extended family who have an annual reunion. Come back again this year, or join us for the first time this year – we welcome you with open hearts and minds
