Friedman Conference

4th ALS Friedman Conference
13-15 May 2016


An invitation to the biggest liberty event of 2016
by John Humphreys

In 2013 just over 100 libertarians and liberty-curious people came together in Sydney for the first ALS Friedman Conference, and a tradition was started that has become an important part of the calendar for Australia’s pro-liberty community. Now in its forth year, the ALS Friedman Conference is bigger and better than ever, with speakers from Europe, America, and Asia joining the most prominent thinkers and activists from Australia.

We expect that this year there will be well over 300 people at the conference, which makes the ALS Friedman Conference the biggest liberty event in the Asia-Pacific region.

The ALS Dinner on Saturday 14 May will again be a celebration of the Australian liberty movement, with the announcement of the Libertarian of the Year, Young Libertarian of the Year, Libertarian Lifetime Achievement, and Libertarian Activist of the Year… as well as a dinner presentation from prominent businessman Matt Barrie. Not to be missed.

The speaker lineup is too long to do justice in a short letter, but some highlights include North Korean defector Park Yeonmi, law professor Ilya Somin from George Mason University, former French minister Herve Novelli, Cato research fellow Trevor Burris, NSW Finance Minister Dom Perrottet, American political commentator Julie Borowski, Australian Senators Sam Dastyari, Bob Day, and David Leyonhjelm, economics professors Sinclair Davidson, Jason Potts, and Phil Lewis, Sex Party leader Fiona Patten, and outgoing Human Rights Commissioner (soon to be MP) Tim Wilson.

The ALS Friedman Conference is a great opportunity to learn from the best… but perhaps more importantly it is a chance to bring together libertarian thinkers, activists, and supporters for a couple of days of celebration and friendship. Book your tickets now, and come join the fun.
