Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) – POSTPONEMENT – ALAANZ National Conference, 6 – 8 May 2020

Dear Member,

The ALAANZ National Council have been very closely monitoring all Australian Government and World Health Organisation Int. advices regarding COVID-19 and the impact this may have on the forthcoming ALAANZ National Conference to be held in Brisbane, from 6 -8 May 2020.  The Council are aware the Australian Government (like many other international governments) has enacted various travel restrictions and quarantine measures for passengers arriving into Australia, and likewise, a number of corporate businesses are now also placing restrictions on non-essential staff travel (both international and domestic) and conference attendances.

In view of the ongoing uncertainty around the virus and its impacts, the ALAANZ National Council have made the very difficult decision to POSTPONE the ALAANZ National Conference scheduled for 6 – 8 May 2020 until Wednesday 21st – Friday 23rd October 2020.  Our members and delegates, sponsors, speakers, conference coordinators and suppliers are our top priority and we strongly believe this is the right decision given the international nature of our conference and the evolving public health risks, travel concerns and limitations and other circumstances.

For those members who have already registered for the May 2020 Conference, our conference coordinator Mecca Concepts will be in contact with you shortly to arrange a full refund of your registration fees.

When the conference is convened in October 2020, the conference location and venue will remain the same.  The ALAANZ National Council highly value the contribution our members and delegates make to the success of our annual national conferences and so in turn, our commitment to you remains 100% focused on delivering a world class aviation law conference in October 2020.  The conference organising committee are communicating with all of our sponsors and speakers to ensure we can deliver to you, our members, a safe and successful conference in late October 2020.

We thank you for your support at this time, and will be in contact with you in the coming months with an updated invitation to register and join us for the National Conference, in Brisbane from 21st to 23rd October 2020.

On behalf of the ALAANZ 2020 Conference Organising Committee and ALAANZ Council
