RIAA is pleased to announce the launch plans for our rescheduled RI Australia conference.
RIAA will be running a series of virtual conference sessions across the coming months, to ensure our industry continues to address the issues that remain so very important in 2020, tapping the experts and gaining the leading insights at a time when we need them more than ever.
Throughout 2020, RIAA will run RI Australia virtual sessions monthly followed by a face to face conference in Sydney on the 27th November 2020 for all those delegates who registered for this conference. Our virtual sessions allows us all to connect and remain informed and engaged throughout this time of remote working, and we'll be experimenting with technologies that can ensure interactivity, as well as time for questions and answers.
If you have already registered for RI Australia 2020 you will automatically receive a join link for the virtual sessions at least 24 hours prior to each session. A reminder to join will also automatically be sent 1 hour prior to each session. More information on GoToWebinar.
