Care in the age of outrage

Internationally and here in Australia, health authorities are making sure we are safe and well. That’s exactly what our conference team are doing for all of our delegates, speakers and exhibitors.

The International Dementia Conference will now be an online Interactive Conference Experience in September 2020. 

We are sorry for any inconvenience caused. However, we are pleased to tell you that our plenary speakers have signed up to our September 2020 dates with the online conference offering even greater access to our speakers and exhibitors, wherever you are in the world. 

The online program will include: 

  • Live streaming and on-demand access for delegates
  • Interactive keynote speakers and panels online
  • Online Q&A and post-session chat forums available throughout the month of September to all our delegates
  • Exclusive access to international speakers and panels live from across the globe
  • A virtual and interactive E-Poster forum
  • A virtual exhibition space providing access to our sponsors, their important work and 1:1 consultations

For the first time the thought-leadership, expertise and delegate experience will transcend the confines of the conference and be made available to delegates beyond the event dates. 

Watch this space over the coming weeks for further updates.
