It comes with great disappointment that we will not be going ahead with the Australian Events Symposium in 2020. After extensive planning and discussion, we have decided to postpone the Symposium for when events start back up.

“The aim of the events symposium is to teach and innovate new ideas for the industry. As we don’t know how long we will be living without Australian events we would rather plan a bigger and better Events Symposium for when the industry starts making a comeback. Even though we don’t know when that will be, the Symposium will return when the industry does.” said Ian Steigrad, Managing Director of the Australian Event Awards.
