News Corp Australia has lifted the lid on the 2024 program of its national advocacy program, the Future series. This year marks a decade of the event, which was first launched in Sydney in 2014.

Since then, The Future series has expanded to 11 events in 11 cities and towns across Australia and is supported by News Corp Australia’s state and regional mastheads.

Future Geelong kicks off the 2024 program on 1st March with Deputy Prime Minister Richard Marles and Victorian Premier Jacinta Allan outlining their visions for the region. 

Future SA then takes place on 15th March with South Australian Premier Peter Malinauskas delivering the keynote address in Adelaide. 

Future Geelong will be supported by commercial partners including Barwon Water, Viva Energy Australia and City of Greater Geelong.

Future SA is sponsored by Santos, Walker Corporation and Mitsubishi.

The series then moves to Western Sydney (April), Townsville (May), Cairns (June), Gold Coast (July), Darwin (September), Victoria (October), Hobart (October), Sydney (November), and Brisbane (November). 

Sponsors for the later installations of the series will be announced as the events get closer. 

The in-person events will also be live-streamed and supported by editorial coverage across local mastheads including Geelong Advertiser, The Advertiser, The Daily Telegraph, Townsville Bulletin, The Mercury, Cairns Post, Gold Coast Bulletin, NT News, The Herald Sun, and The Courier-Mail

News Corp Australia’s publishing board chairman Jason Scott said “These mastheads have become cornerstone brands in their communities because they have advocated for their cities and towns, in many cases, for more than a century. Whether it’s campaigning for education, transport infrastructure or healthcare, we are committed to making our communities better places to live. 

“As we mark the 10th anniversary of the Future series, we recognise there is still plenty of work to be done. We remain focussed on shining a light on the issues that matter and holding those in power to account,” Scott said.
