Locate conference organisers have announced dates for Locate 2021, and a digital engagement plan featuring Locate20 speakers and exhibitors.
The next Locate will take place from 30 March – 1 April, 2021, following the postponement of the 2020 event due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
‘We have selected these dates to ensure we have the utmost confidence in the conference proceeding. In spite of our collective disappointment that this year’s conference will not be going ahead, we know we will be back bigger and better in 2021,’ the organisers said in a statement issued to delegates.
The Locate committee has also announced a digital engagement plan to make material from the 2020 program available to delegates, some of which will qualify for CPD points.
‘The digital engagement plan will showcase an ongoing stream of digital materials generated from our 2020 speakers, panel sessions and exhibitors in the leadup to Locate21 in various formats such as live webinars, live interviews and Q&A, exhibitor talks/demonstrations, a multi-day/multi speaker mini-conference, and live panel sessions drawn from the interactive Hub agenda,’ the statement continued.
These resources are available free to those registered for Locate20, and will be available at cost to those that are unregistered.
Locate20 delegates are encouraged to retain their registration for the 2021 event, which will attract no additional costs.
‘Your support of the conference is also vital to securing the future of this valuable industry conference, as we come to terms with the financial implications this crisis has had upon us, and others,’ the statement reads.
‘Locate Conferences recognises the impact this crisis is having on our industry and the country as a whole. These truly are unprecedented times and as such we want to pass on our sincere thanks to all delegates, sponsors, board members and partners involved in the conference.’
