AFAC21 goes virtual with entire program and interactive exhibition
The much anticipated conference will go ahead with a progressive program and world-class speakers via an online platform.
Due to the current lockdowns happening in parts of the country, AFAC has decided to make the 2021 event virtual for the first time in its 26-year history. AFAC21 virtual conference and exhibition will happen 5-8 October 2021.
With the vital conversations still to be had by the emergency services industry, the virtual format will ensure as many essential sector participants can safely attend and contribute to the knowledge-sharing that will drive the industry forward. The virtual platform hosts a range of interactive features providing an immersive experience for attendees. The exhibition will be transformed into a 3D digital experience and offer multiple networking opportunities.
AFAC21 still has an action-packed program with numerous sessions covering key industry topics including simulation and data use, prescribed burning, community engagement, climate change and environment, volunteer capability and more.
There will be over 100 speakers across 7 immersive streams providing a holistic view of both the past and current landscape in emergency management, and what the future may hold. The five excellent keynote speakers include:
- Dr Michelle Dickinson, Nanotechnologist and Materials Engineer
- Dominique Hogan-Doran, Counsel Assisting the Royal Commission into National Natural Disaster Arrangements
- Stan Grant, International Affairs Analyst, ABC
- Turia Pitt, Mindset Coach, Author and Athlete
- Shane Fitzsimmons, Commissioner of Resilience NSW
AFAC21 is set to be one of the biggest events on the calendar for emergency management workers, with the events of the last two years high on the agenda to discuss. The virtual platform will offer the full experience of the conference and exhibition with attendees able to easily join sessions, interact with the exhibitors and network with peers.
AFAC21 has a range of access passes to ensure attendees are offered flexibility in the current environment. For further information visit: https://www.afacconference.com.au/pricing-registration
