Summit COVID-19 Event Policy
COVID-19 is impacting the way in which events are run. It’s important that you understand the precautions we are taking to ensure your safety and what may happen should circumstances change. Rest assured, the safety of our attendees, speakers and staff is paramount and as an organisation we will work to ensure the safest environment possible.
What measures are being taken to ensure the safety of participants and to reduce the risk of the spread of COVID-19?
The Summit will comply with all measures put in place by both federal and state governments to ensure the safety of participants.
The event will look to maintain social distancing, increase sanitisation, decrease congestion in all areas, food service will be altered to minimise contact and to ensure hygiene, attendees will be asked about their health and those with flu-like symptoms may not be permitted to attend.
These measures may change in line with the most up to date health advice.
What happens if government regulations or restrictions related to COVID-19 limit or prohibit me from attending in person?
The Summit this year will be hybrid (both in person and virtual) to facilitate the participation of all attendees. Attendees will have the option to register either for an in person or virtual ticket. In person tickets will also have access to all virtual components. This will include a live stream of all sessions as well as the ability to interact with workshop discussions and presentations with live questions and polling.
If after registering to attend the event in person you are unable to travel due to state border closures, or illness, your registration can either be transferred to a colleague who is able to attend in person, 3 virtual passes, or 2022 Summit attendance providing written notice to Claire.firstname.lastname@example.org within 2 days of the event commencement.
We will not be issuing refunds. Any outstanding non-payment does not constitute cancellation.
What happens if the Summit needs to be moved from these dates?
COVID-19 has increased uncertainty around events, with the possibility that the event’s scheduled timing may need to be changed at short notice. This could occur if there was an isolated case of COVID-19 identified at the Summit venue or if there happened to be a significant increase in cases throughout the broader community in the lead up to the event.
The safety of our attendees, speakers and staff is paramount and as the organisers we reserve the right to postpone the Summit to a later date within 12 months.
In the event of a postponement, your registration will be automatically transferred to the new Summit dates. If you cannot make the new dates, you can transfer your ticket to a colleague or alternately receive a credit note for use at the next Summit event.
