Join us for the AIOFP 2021 conference in Hobart!
It's finally time to get together and celebrate again. We've lined up some amazing speakers - this is an event you won't want to miss!
Our approach is different to most other conference formats – and it works. The conference fee covers all professional and social events - for example hotel lunches, conference hotel fees for equipment, transfers etc. It also covers the social events including welcome drinks and dinners. We also embed a $500 margin for the AIOFP funding and costs for guest speakers.
Over the years the AIOFP has been caught with the cost of partners attending functions they should not be at. [Hotel staff do a head count…] This eventuality gets embarrassing and messy for all concerned. To use an industry term Partners either OPT IN for all functions or OPT OUT for all, we do not want to split them. We also pay a fee per head regardless of what is consumed trying to get cost relief based on being a non - drinker is problematic. Based on the above, the partner fee is the same as a delegate.
Our conferences are about working hard and playing almost as hard. We are not into speakers who have scaled Mt Everest, we are into industry relevant information to maximise intellectual growth and satisfy FAESA CPD requirements. Our official program will be out closer to conference to ensure the content is up to date. We have included plenty of time to sight see around beautiful Tasmania. The broad agenda for the 3 days are:
- Tuesday night welcome function, dinner in the hotel
- Wednesday morning conference sessions, lunch, free afternoon and dinner function at 7pm
- Thursday morning conference sessions, lunch, free afternoon/ dinner function with speaker at 7pm
- Friday morning sessions, final session will be a lunch followed by AGM. Conference concludes at 2.30pm
The hotel will extend the special accommodation rate 3 days either side of the conference should you wish to stay on.
