Following consultation with key stakeholders, the AFAC Conference team has made the tough decision to postpone AFAC20, which was set to take place in Adelaide this August.

Considering the many restrictions and safety issues surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, organisers say they simply couldn’t continue with this year’s event. AFAC21 powered by INTERSCHUTZ will run from 17 – 20 August 2021 at the ICC Sydney.

The AFAC Conference team is still committed to bringing the award-winning event to South Australia and are pleased to announce a return to Adelaide in 2022.

Full details around the AFAC21 programme will be available in due course and we look forward to working with our host agencies to plan a world-class conference and exhibition.

Earlier this year, five abstracts were selected by Fire and Emergency New Zealand to be put forward to the Conference Organising Committee. Once information is available about the abstract submission process for the 2021 event, we will work with those authors to discuss resubmission.

Organisers wanted to thank interested parties for their understanding, continued support and commitment to the AFAC conference.
