STATEMENT BELOW FROM ANDY PANES REGARDING 2020 NIFAT CONFERENCE
It is with great sadness that today the National Institute of First Aid Trainers has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 National First Aid Trainers Conference.
This event was scheduled to take place on 13th & 14th August 2020 on the Gold Coast.
I know this will cause an inconvenience to many people and I would like to personally apologise to all those who have booked to attend. I would also like to extend this apology to those who have booked trade stands and sponsorship packages.
Why has this event been cancelled?
As you will be aware, over the last couple of months the world has been dealing with the spread of COVID-19. This is causing uncertainty in several areas, and even with the best information available, it is hard to know how Australia will be impacted over the coming months.
Organising a conference requires an amount of certainty, especially when locked into financial agreements with venues and suppliers. We are approaching a ‘no return date’ and for this reason (amongst others) we have decided to cancel the event at this time.
We may find that come August, everything is fine and back to normal. I hope this is the case. I wish I had a crystal ball!
What happens now?
At this time we are not confirming a future date for this event. We will continue to evaluate over the coming months.
For those who have booked accommodation at the venue, please contact them directly as soon as possible to discuss refund options. 07 5579 1060 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Once again, I sincerely apologise, the conference team had been looking forward to organising another great event for you this year.
