Emergency communications conference

Experts in the field of disaster and emergency communications will gather in Melbourne in June to share ideas and lessons learned.

The Emergency Media & Public Affairs (EMPA) East Conference 2018 will be held at the Novotel Melbourne St Kilda, 3 to 5 June.

Formed in 2006, EMPA is the world’s only representative organisation of emergency service and disaster communications practitioners.

EMPA holds annual conferences in Australia and New Zealand and funds research on disaster communications and community response and recovery.

It also administers an internationally recognised accreditation program for those working in emergency public information management.

The aim of the EMPA and the conference is to highlight the need for effective disaster communications that can influence individuals and organisations to make the decisions they need to, quickly and comprehensively.

The conference is suited to communications professionals, emergency services professionals, response and recovery agencies, public information managers, public relations practitioners, researchers and social media specialists.

More details are available in the conference brochure.
