ACIPC Conference Community

Inclusive for all ACIPC Sponsors

The ACIPC Conference Community will run from October to the end of financial year 2021 and consist of a variety of online and physical regional events. Planned activities include:

  • A series of Live and Pre-Recorded Invited Keynote Presentations
  • Online Poster Presentations
  • Online Free Paper Presentation Sessions
  • Dedicated Educational Sessions delivered by ACIPC Sponsors
  • Online Exhibition Areas
  • Online Discussion Forums
  • Physical Regional Events when appropriate

The Australasian Conference Community is intended to deliver quality educational and social networking opportunities to members and stakeholders in the absence of the traditional annual conference which has been postponed due to COVID-19.

The COVID-19 pandemic is giving us an opportunity to disrupt the traditional means for delivery of conference content, to try new ways of connecting our members with industry, and to expand upon the conference’s traditional audiences.

As such we are excited to be making registration for the ACIPC Australasia Conference Community free. Through making registration free for all attendees, it is our hope that a great number of our members and broader profession will embrace the new look concept for this year, which will in turn provide excellent exposure and networking opportunity for sponsors of ACIPC.  

Audience

A key focus for the Conference Community will be expanding our audience in Australia and the Asia Pacific region more broadly beyond the traditional Infection Control Professional, particularly WHS/OHS staff in organisations tasked with managing infection prevention and control, and issues related to COVID-19. 

 
We look forward to the support of sponsors in helping us to make this new initiative a great success.

ACIPC sponsors will be acknowledged as valuable supporters of the Conference Community and enjoy the following benefits.
