WORKTECH20 Sydney Announcement: Event Postponed

Please note that we’ve made the decision to postpone our WORKTECH20 Sydney Conference on Thursday 26th of March due to the recent developments over the weekend with the COVID-19/Coronavirus situation.

We will be in touch in due course about the revised date but as I’m sure you can appreciate, this is an unprecedented situation and things still remain relatively uncertain. Delegate tickets are still valid and will be transferred to the new date once this is confirmed.

The health and safety of our partners, speakers, delegates and our own team are of paramount importance to WORKTECH, as is the welfare of all visitors to the ICC along with those who work here on a daily basis.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can. We will continue to monitor the global situation and update the WORKTECH community on developments.
