Comms Connect Melbourne rescheduled for March 2022
Comms Connect Melbourne has been postponed to 8–10 March 2022 due to concerns about ongoing COVID-19 outbreaks.
The event, which is Australia’s premier critical communications and public safety exhibition and conference, was originally scheduled to be held on 19–21 October 2021.
“We are confident this decision is in the best interest, safety and wellbeing of all in the industry, given the current outbreaks and lockdowns across the country,” said WF Media Managing Director Geoff Hird.
“Our key industry stakeholders, including leading industry bodies ARCIA and TCCA/ACCF, have supported the move, as have our sponsors and conference speakers. We wanted to make this call now to allow our partners plenty of time to adjust their plans and resource commitments.”
Comms Connect Melbourne is in its 14th year and is the annual meeting place for the sector’s key vendors, suppliers, public sector leaders and end users. The updated conference program will be released late next month and the current list of sponsors, exhibitors and supporting industry bodies can be found here. The Australian Radio Communications Industry Association holds its annual ARCIA Awards gala dinner as part of the event, and this will now take place on 9 March.
“With the vaccination rollout ramping up nationally now, we look forward to a very strong Comms Connect Melbourne in March next year and a business events rebirth,” Hird said.
