AFAC21 Virtual was a testament to resilience

AFAC21 Virtual Conference and Exhibition concluded with more than 2534 registered delegates in attendance over four days, with presentations that shared insights and tackled the tough issues affecting the fire and emergency service sector. The first virtual event in the conference and exhibition’s 26-year history attracted more than 2500 attendees, featured 120 sessions across seven streams, 9 keynote presentations and 37 virtual exhibitors.

The conference and exhibition ran from 5–8 October 2021 and was hosted on an interactive platform as a result of COVID-19 necessitating an alternative to a face-to-face environment. The AFAC21 conference was complemented by The Institute of Fire Engineers (IFE) Australia Conference and the Australian Disaster Resilience Conference (ADRC) as well as a day dedicated to the professional development program.

The highly attended sessions covered diverse topics around the theme ‘balancing impact and expectations’. Keynote presenters included Turia Pitt, Stan Grant, Dominique Hogan-Doran SC, Bronwyn Ray, Shane Fitzsimmons AFSM, Dr Michelle Dickinson and Adriana Keating.

Preparations have begun for AFAC22 due to be held in a face-to-face environment in Adelaide, 23–26 August 2022.
