NESA National Conference 2021

7 – 9 JUNE 2021  |  QT CANBERRA

The 2021 NESA National Conference and Gala Awards Dinner is scheduled to go ahead on 7-9 June at QT Canberra.
 
Despite the 7-day lockdown announced on Thursday 24 May for Victoria, we are still hopeful that we will be able to see everybody from around Australia face-to-face in Canberra.
 
However, if that’s not going to be possible due to COVID-19 restrictions, then the option for delegates to change their registration from in person to virtual will be possible.
 
For further details on the impact of COVID-19 restrictions on delegate registrations, please refer to our terms and conditions.

We will continue to monitor government announcements and guidelines closely and keep you up to date on any changes to our event.

We look forward to connecting with you in person or virtually at #NESACONF21 .
