COVIDSafe Conference Guidelines

The Conference Hosts and Conference Manager will closely follow Government recommendations to deliver a COVIDSafe conference. Guidelines will be in place to ensure attendee health and safety. Your support is also essential to keep this event COVIDSafe. We ask that attendees observe good hygiene and physical distancing at the event, where possible. If you are feeling unwell, please do not attend the conference. Please email the Conference Manager at least 24 hours prior to the conference if you are unable to attend due to illness. Under these circumstances a transfer of your registration to a colleague will be accepted at no cost. If Government restrictions impact your ability to attend, or the Conference Hosts’ ability to hold the conference, the Conference Manager will be in touch to discuss your registration.


ICAZ recognizes that the cost of conference attendance is financially difficult for many. To this end, ICAZ will be offering several scholarships, with details forthcoming.
