For anyone involved in the social and digital world, the State of Social is unmissable.

At a time when the marketing landscape is changing faster than Facebook’s algorithms, we’re making Perth the centre of the digiverse with the most insightful and unconferencey conference in Australia. The State of Social is held at Optus Stadium.


Set between the Swan River and the 400 lush hectares of Kings Park, Perth is synonymous with everything that is attractive about Australia.


Guests travelling to Perth for the State of Social are invited to stay at Crown Perth located on the eastern banks of the Swan River, just minutes from the CBD and both domestic and international airports.


As a major capital city, Perth is serviced by 18 international airlines, 5 domestic and 11 regional airlines making it very accessible.  There are 267 international flights in and out of the city every week connecting travellers to over 50 destinations around Australia and overseas.


Please plan to arrive at the Perth Airport on Monday, June 22, 2020. Many attendees arrive a few days early to tour Perth and surrounds.

The opening keynote starts at 9am on Tuesday, June 23, 2020. Click here for the full event schedule.


The State of Social officially ends on Wednesday, June 24, 2019 at 330pm. Click here for the full event schedule.
