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.

On 13 March, RIAA took the position to postpone the RI Australia Conference 2020 in light of the rapid escalation of infection in COVID-19, including advice by credible health authorities to ban mass gatherings, as well as increasing number of companies acting to constrain staff travel and meetings.

However, as communicated at the time, RIAA remains committed to running this event, that so many people have contributed towards creating. We believe that at this time it is especially important to continue to share insights and leading practices.

Our rescheduled plan for RI Australia will:

  • model a modern way of connecting people around important issues that can operate even when we're all in lock down, and occur with greatly reduced carbon impact
  • deliver value for delegates, keeping them engaged and informed across 2020
  • ensure we are continuing to provide a platform to discuss issues that are so important right now to our industry

This continues to be a dynamic environment we're all working in, and so we will continue to be responsive to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 in our RI Australia planning.
