We understand how volatile COVID-19 is and have planned accordingly. All participants will have access to the hybrid event through the secure virtual live streaming of all events included in the Summit (some events will be invitation only and therefore only available to invitees). For those who live in Western Australia, or who have the resources to send delegates from interstate, we encourage you to apply to participate in-person. The Summit has been planned with Level 4 COVID-19 safe practices and restrictions in place. Your safety is of utmost importance to us.
