NEDC20 – A completely online event

Due to the escalation of COVID-19 outbreaks in Victoria and NSW and continuing lockdowns and travel restrictions, we are announcing today that NEDC20 will be a completely online event.

While we are disappointed not to welcome delegates to the City of Liverpool in person, we look forward to bringing delegates a taste of this vibrant city, through innovative means! With the theme; Breaking New Ground, Building a Resilient Future, the dynamic program from 18-20 November will bring national and international economic development leaders directly to you, with fully interactive, live presentations and discussions, through a professional online event platform.

Full, online registration provides attendance at all conference sessions with interactive Q&A, access to the virtual sponsorship exhibition, networking sessions through a meeting hub, etc. Recordings will also be available after the event.

Registration fees have been amended to reflect a fully virtual event, as well as recognising the impact COVID-19 has had on many of our members’ budgets. If you have already registered as a face to face delegate, we will be in touch to transfer your tickets.

I’m sure you agree that Liverpool’s unwavering support to deliver a world-class conference while ensuring the safety, health and well-being of delegates is to be commended. This leadership reflects the reason Liverpool City Council were the successful host bidder!
