The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic forces also AFAC powered by INTERSCHUTZ to postpone its original date in August 2020. The next AFAC will take place in Sydney from August 17 to 20, 2021.
It is with deep regret that the organizers of the Australian AFAC had to declare that the 2020 edition of the conference and fair on protection and rescue has to be postponed. This is due to the conditions and restrictions caused by the current COVID 19 pandemic. The AFAC powered by INTERSCHUTZ, scheduled for August, will now be held one year later – from August 17 to 20, 2021, but then in Sydney at the International Convention Center (ICC). This year, AFAC had chosen Adelaide as a venue in southern Australia. The AFAC organizers have decided to organize the conference fair again in Adelaide in 2022. The focus is now on the 2021 program, and all information on topics, speakers and the exhibition will be published in due course.
AFAC powered by INTERSCHUTZ is a joint project between the Australasian Fire and Emergency Service Authorities Council (AFAC), Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC and Deutsche Messe, in this case Hannover Fairs Pty Ltd. At the same time, AFAC strengthens the international network of the world’s leading trade fair INTERSCHUTZ in Hannover.
