Following the Prime Ministers announcement last Monday and Auckland remaining in alert level 3 the decision has been made to offer the Gastro 2021 Conference in a hybrid format. The conference will still proceed in-person at the Christchurch Town Hall for those who are able to physically attend.
If the rest of the country outside of Auckland is still in alert level 2 at the time of the conference, we have plans in place to be able to still hold the conference safely but it may affect some of the social programme not being able to go ahead. Any tickets purchased for functions not proceeding will be refunded.
For those not able to travel, we are now offering virtual registration where you will be able to enjoy the full 3-day conference programme from the comfort of your own home. You will have access to network with other delegates, meet with sponsors/exhibitors and ask questions all via the virtual platform. All sessions will be recorded and available to watch on-demand for two months following the conference.
Please note, if the whole country moves back in to a level 3 or 4 lockdown then we will have a fully virtual conference.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact our conference organiser, Emma Prattley.
Otherwise we looking forward to you joining us in-person or virtually!
