The Australian Festival Industry Conference (AFIC) has postponed to next year, due to the ongoing national covid-19 crisis.
The conference will now be held on August 30 to September 2, 2022.
“It is with great sadness that we announce our decision to postpone the conference yet again,” said AFIC founder and event director Carlina Ericson.
“With the situation worsening in NSW, VIC and ACT, it makes it impossible for us to deliver the event as originally planned in November 2021.
“Over the last few months, we’ve continued to witness further event postponements and cancellations. I am conscious that everyone is going through an incredibly difficult time and I still want to ensure that we can eventually meet face-to-face to discuss how we move forward as an industry.”
The program as it currently stands will remain the same in 2022.
“Already we have delegates registered to attend from Queensland, New South Wales, ACT, Victoria and South Australia, which is excellent to see, and I look forward to welcoming everyone to AFIC in 2022,” said Ericson.
