WAIMH 2021 Hybrid - How will it work?

WAIMH 2021 will be held from 22 – 26 June 2021 and will be a Hybrid Congress – a blend of in-person in Brisbane, Australia and virtual on-line (both interactive and on-demand). As a consequence of COVID-19 and Australian government restrictions on travel, it is likely that only Australian residents and possibly travellers from New Zealand will be able to attend in-person.

If travel allows, you can participate in WAIMH 2021 by attending the Congress live in Brisbane at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre. For those unable to travel, you can participate in WAIMH 2021 virtually (on-line) from your home or office. 

The Hybrid format of WAIMH 2021 creates an opportunity for even more people to participate than before. We encourage those who may not have attended WAIMH 2021 in person, to consider registration as a virtual attendee. 

How will the program work?

The Scientific Program for WAIMH 2021 will consist of all current accepted presentations. The only difference, is how the program will be offered, to ensure that WAIMH 2021 Hybrid will be a truly global Congress, with full participation in multiple time zones.  

The Scientific Program for WAIMH 2021 will be broken down into three (3) opportunities;

  • WAIMH 2021 – Live to the World
  • WAIMH 2021 – Live in Brisbane
  • WAIMH 2021 – On-demand

The WAIMH 2021 five day program will be presented live and has been designed to allow participants from all around the world access to view and participate in a variety of live sessions. Throughout the live program, there will also be various opportunities for networking, coffee chats and other activities to unite the participants of WAIMH from all corners of the world.

What if I am already registered? 

In light of WAIMH 2021 now being hybrid format, we understand that international attendees may not be able to attend in person, therefore may wish to switch to a virtual registration.

All international attendees with a current WAIMH Congress registration will be contacted via email in February 2021 and provided options relating to registration, virtual registration and refunds. Registered delegates will be provided a selection of 3 options available for their registration.

Please keep an eye out for your email communication in February 2021 regarding your current WAIMH registration.
