Health and safety

Health and safety is paramount at AIEC and the well-being of our attendees is our priority.

We are closely monitoring COVID-19 regulations in line with advice from the Australian Government and local health authorities to ensure your health is protected.

We are working with our Professional Conference Organisers, Think Business Events, our main conference venue partner, the  Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, and all our other suppliers to ensure we take all reasonable steps to make AIEC a safe environment for everyone.

We are developing a COVID-19 Safety Plan that details how we will manage the risks of COVID-19 during the conference. It will include measures for your safety while at the conference, such as:

  • physical distancing
  • increased hygiene practices
  • safe food and beverage service
  • cleaning protocols.

We will be following the latest health advice from the Australian and Queensland governments, so in-person delegates must be aware that safety measures and health requirements may change in the lead up to the event.

Details will be provided to in-person attendees closer to the conference.

In the meantime, please see the GCCEC Covid Safe Guidelines for more information, or contact us if you have any questions.
