The latest events news: how APP can be COVID-safe, plus National Medicine Symposium speakers revealed  

With less than five weeks to go to APP2021, the team behind the event have worked hard to ensure the event is COVID Safe for everyone to come together face-to-face.

Here’s some reasons why it’s safe to be at APP face to face:

  1. APP’s no risk booking guarantee means you won’t have to worry about snap border closures or government restrictions. Options include a full 100% refund, or the ability to transfer your registration at no cost*
  2. Connecting safely at APP will be covered by our COVID Safe Event Plan. We’ve put measures in place to ensure your safety during the event
  3. Miss the airport experience but not the queues? When you arrive, you’ll be able to collect your name badge using APP’s new contactless check-in experience. Attendees will book a time slot to ensure seamless collection of your APP pass(port).
  4. Every step of your APP journey is simpler with quick and easy check-in. Don’t forget to download the free and secure Check In Qld App before you reach sunny Queensland.
  5. There’s plenty of space for you to relax and experience APP. We’ve allowed plenty of room for session attendees to spread out. APP will also feature additional rooms and areas to enjoy live streaming of the sessions, so no one misses out!
  6. Everyone will be fashionably kitted out in face masks, if they’re unable to physically distance. Who said wearing the same thing was boring?
  7. We’re ready to bump elbows. We may not be able to shake hands but we’re ready for some safe networking complete with hand sanitiser and physical distancing.
  8. Shopping and pristine beaches anyone? Many airlines are currently offering half price travel to the Gold Coast thanks to the Federal Government’s tourism support package – make the most of what the Gold Coast has on offer while you’re there!
