Welcome to the Australian Web Industry Association (AWIA) website.

Formed in 2002 to unite web industry professionals across Australia, AWIA's purpose is to advance the Australian web industry by:

  • Fostering greater ties with like-minded organisations, and
  • Educating the general public about the role of professionals in the web industry.

AWIA has become one of the largest dedicated web industry association of its kind in Australia. Our monthly networking meetings regularly attract 40-60 individuals from varying cross-sections of the web industry, our occasional speaking events have attracted 150-200 attendees each, and our online forums have over 450 active participants and a total of over 40,000 posts.
