Virtual Registration

Important Update

We are delighted with the response to the conference to date. Overwhelmingly, those who have registered have purchased in-person tickets.

With the removal of border restrictions, it has become clear that there is insufficient demand to warrant provision of a fully live-streamed conference.

As a result, the Re-Emerge conference will now take place in-person only. We look forward to welcoming you all to the State Library of Victoria.

These details will also be shared on the conference app and virtual portal as part of the attendee list. Please note that your phone number and email address will not be shared unless you opt in to meetings via the meeting hub event app or virtual attendee portal.

In the event that Commonwealth or State Government-imposed COVID-19 restrictions prohibit registrants from attending the event in person (for example, because of State border closures), you will be entitled, at your election, to access the conference content on-demand (note that some sessions may not be available on-demand due to the wishes of the presenters), or to cancel your registration. If you elect to access the conference content on-demand, you will be entitled to a refund of $400.
