As all medical radiation practitioners are no doubt aware, we are in the midst of an expanding global coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, which has now been categorised as a pandemic by the WHO. ASMIRT and NZIMRT extends their support to all those who have been affected by the outbreak to date – either directly or indirectly.
With respect to the ASMIRT-NZIMRT 2020 conference, participant and wider community health and safety, is of utmost importance to us, so we are ensuring that we are taking all necessary precautions regarding COVID-19.
As a result, ASMIRT-NZIMRT 2020 has been postponed.
We are currently working with the conference venue, the Melbourne Convention Exhibition Centre (MCEC) to secure another date for this event. We expect an announcement to be made on this within the next two weeks.
Please note that this postponement will be an equivalent replacement for the planned event originally scheduled for 14-17 May 2020.
Registrations which have already been booked will be valid for the new, soon to be determined, date for the ASMIRT-NZIMRT conference. For those who have registered and are unable to attend the rescheduled event, refunds will be available. More information on how to access a refund will be available in the near future.
We are confident that we will soon be able to announce a new date for the conference in Melbourne. We understand that you need this information as soon as possible so you can change your travel plans. If you have booked your accommodation through us / InHouse Event Solutions when you registered, you will be eligible for a full refund on accommodation deposits / payments. More information on how to access a refund for accommodation or move your accommodation booking to the new conference dates will be available in the near future.
ASMIRT and NZIMRT would like to express our sincere thanks to our participants, sponsors and exhibitors for your understanding, support and flexibility.
