Canberra welcomes large events back

The hybrid event will take place at the National Convention Centre Canberra

The National Convention Centre Canberra (NCCC) is all geared up for a return to large in-person business events as it hosts the Australian Information Security Association (AISA)’s 2021 Australian Cyber Conference from March 16-18.

Delivered by Canberra-based Conference Logistics (Conlog), the hybrid conference is expected to attract 800 in-person delegates, with an additional 400 attending virtually.

The Australian Cyber Conference is significant as it marks not only one of Canberra’s, but also Australia’s, first major multi-day conferences in 12 months, and attests to a growing confidence from delegates to meet in person again.

Canberra has been the least impacted major city in Australia, where there are stringent Covid-safe guidelines in venues and institutions in place, as well as zero community transmitted cases since mid-2020.

The NCCC has managed the planning and delivery of the event collaboratively with Conlog, navigating through changing restrictions and finding creative solutions for a successful hybrid event.

“The size and scope of the event delivery network in Canberra allows for immediate and creative response times, allowing us to pre-empt any guideline updates or logistical changes in the lead up to the event.

“NCCC has been leading the Covid-safe response with a focus on delegate safety and wellbeing, which has been paramount to a growing confidence among meeting planners and delegates to return to business in Canberra,” states Stephen Wood, general manager at NCCC.
