Cancellation of UDIA National Congress and Gala Awards Dinner 2020

UDIA has been monitoring daily the extraordinary challenges posed by the COVID-19 virus and its potential impact on next week’s National Congress planned to be held in Sydney commencing Tuesday 17th March, 2020.

The physical and emotional health and wellbeing of our delegates, staff, sponsors, exhibitors and speakers is paramount.

As a result, UDIA has made the decision to cancel this year’s National Congress and Gala Awards Dinner in Sydney.

We understand that this decision will cause inconvenience especially for interstate and international travellers for which we apologise.

We all remain optimistic that the current situation will resolve itself soon and we can all go back to “business as usual”. Once this occurs, we look forward to see you all at the many quality UDIA state events that are held throughout the year and welcoming you all to the 2021 Congress.

We will continue to communicate with you on matters arising from cancellation of Congress.
