Health and safety 

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

Though the risk of infection and transmission is very low in Australia, it is important that all attendees acknowledge there are inherent risks associated with large events. Also, the possibility of border closures and restrictions on travel and indoor gatherings remains high, as well as the possibility of having to quarantine or self-isolate. 

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.  

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.
