Asia-Pacific Venue Industry Congress
The largest gathering of venue industry professionals in the Asia-Pacific region.
THE 2020 ASIA-PACIFIC VENUE INDUSTRY CONGRESS HAS BEEN CANCELLED
Important Message on the Asia-Pacific Venue Industry Congress
Updated March 2020
We regretfully inform that as a result of the COVID-19 international crisis, the VMA Board have made the very difficult decision to cancel our 2020 Asia Pacific Venue Industry Congress scheduled to commence 17th May 2020.
In reaching this decision the health and safety of our members and participants was paramount.
We have recognised the capacity for many of our delegates, sponsors, trade and speakers to attend has been impacted and as the Australian Government has now given our industry clear direction on mass gatherings it is important that the VMA Board be decisive in communicating our decision on this very important annual industry event.
As your Venue Management Association, your Board will be working to adapt to this challenge and deliver ongoing opportunities for member engagement and professional development, while continuing to keep the industry informed with timely and relevant information as best we can during this unprecedented period.
We also know that one of the greatest strengths of our Association is the support, camaraderie and friendship that underpins our membership base. I encourage all Members to continue to assist one another personally and professionally in support of our wonderful industry.
Rest assured, full refunds will be made for all delegate registration fees to date and our management team will be liaising closely with all sponsors and exhibitors.
On behalf of the Board and Staff, I want to personally apologise for any disruption this decision may cause.
For any immediate concerns, please do not hesitate to be in contact with either myself or the VMA office.
