ASCIA Annual Conference postponed to September 2021

23 March 2020

ASCIA has closely monitored the COVID-19 outbreak in relation to the ASCIA 2020 Conference, which was scheduled for the first week of September 2020 in Melbourne.

Given that the situation has rapidly evolved in Australia and New Zealand, we have decided to postpone the ASCIA Conference until September 2021, at the Melbourne Convention Centre.

The new dates will be Wednesday 1st to 3rd September 2021 for the ASCIA Conference, with the CFAR Symposium on 31st August 2021 and the ANZVASC meeting on Saturday 4th September 2021.

All of the work that has already been done in planning for the ASCIA Conference, CFAR and ANZVASC will be transferred to 2021, including the exhibition and sponsorship, which will be rolled over until then.

This will be the first time in 30 years that an ASCIA Annual Conference has been postponed, but ASCIA believes it is the best action to take, to ensure the health and wellbeing of the community.
