NDS is delighted to announce National Disability Practitioners (NDP) has won first place at the international vFairs Eventeer Awards in the category of Best Non-Profit Event. The award was received for 2021 Cultivating Your Disability Workforce virtual conference.

NDP’s Cultivating Your Disability Workforce conference brought together hundreds of disability practitioners from around Australia to connect, share experiences, collaborate, and learn from one another. NDP strived to create a unique, interactive and accessible learning space in which delegates could engage with empowering presentations in a virtual environment.

“The Eventeer Awards are a celebration of excellence in virtual and hybrid events. We are grateful to have helped National Disability Practitioners host Cultivating Your Disability Workforce conference this past year, and celebrate in their successes together,” said Muhammad Younas, CEO vFairs. “We congratulate those organisations who won and look forward to seeing them continue to thrive as leaders in their event category.”

NDS congratulates all nominees and winners.  We thank everyone who attended and voted for this event.
