Celebrating 20 years in 2024

From humble beginnings in the early 2000s, the Corporate PA Summit has grown to become a significant platform where PAs and EAs convene, connect, learn, and grow.

Over two decades, we’ve showcased over 800 speakers, hosted over 1000 conference sessions, and facilitated countless networking opportunities that have forged fruitful professional partnerships and friendships.

Our mission has always been two-fold – to help EAs and PAs be the best they can be, professionally and personally, and to raise the profile of the profession in the wider business community. 

A global brand

In addition to the Sydney and Melbourne events, the Corporate PA Summits have run for many years in Perth and Auckland, and, pre-Covid, Chicago and Los Angeles. In 2024 and beyond, we are planning to continue the global legacy of the summit, with the launch of the Corporate PA Summit London. 

The Sydney and Melbourne events will always be the original and best, of course, and we can’t wait to welcome you to the 20th anniversary events in June! Check out the full program and confirmed speakers.
