Update 10 August 2020: Due to the current COVID-19 situation in Melbourne we are postponing yet again to 17 – 18 May 2021 in Melbourne. We will hold a half day virtual event on 13 October. More details to come.

There might be changes to the program depending on the availability of speakers. We will keep you updated.

The conference website has the program with links to abstracts, and the list of speakers. Highlights include keynotes from James Thurston from G3ict, Philip Taylor from Federation University, and Paul Harpur from University of Queensland.

The inclusive tourism panel will have Martin Heng, Nicole Healy, Victorian Government, and Sarah Seddon, formerly from Destination Melbourne. The final panel session will discuss the role of government in promoting and implementing universal design: James Thurston, G3ict, Michael Walker, Victorian Government, and Fiona Morrison, NSW Government will give their views. With a lunchtime walking tour, Table Topic discussions, workshops and posters there’s something for everyone!
