Comms Connect Sydney and New Zealand postponed

Due to the current restrictions on travel and gatherings, WFevents has elected to postpone the Comms Connect Sydney and Comms Connect New Zealand conferences/exhibitions.

The earlier of the events, Comms Connect New Zealand has been postponed from May until September.

“This year’s Comms Connect New Zealand has so far received outstanding support from the sector, with the exhibition the largest seen to date and delegate registrations very strong at this early stage of the campaign,” said Paul Davis, WFevents Director.

“However, the difficult and perhaps only sensible decision to make right now, given the rapidly escalating situation around COVID-19, is that we postpone this year’s conference and exhibition. By postponing now, a level of certainty can be put in place, giving all those involved time to amend plans and make adjustments where necessary.”

The new dates that have been secured at the Wellington venue are 9 and 10 September 2020.

“In the coming days we will be in touch with our key stakeholders to discuss their plans and how they can continue to be part of this important event in New Zealand’s critical communications landscape,” Davis said.

“As you would imagine, this decision has not be taken lightly; we appreciate your ongoing support and understanding at this time and look forward to working with you towards another successful Comms Connect New Zealand, albeit at a later date than originally planned.”

The new dates for Comms Connect Sydney have not yet been decided. Keep an eye on the Critical Comms website for updates.
