GA2020 | Coronavirus Statement 1 – March 2020

Sydney Harbour Bridge from Luna Park J Siu 2015We understand many of you may have concerns about the coronavirus (COVID-19) and how that may affect GA2020 in Sydney, this coming October. Australia ICOMOS and the GA2020 team are monitoring the COVID-19 situation, which is changing very rapidly at present. At this time, there are a range of restrictions in place, which affect travel to Australia. As this is a rapidly-evolving situation, it is not possible to provide advice about travel in September / October, nor to speculate about the prospect that GA2020 may be amended, deferred or cancelled.

We will at all times place the health and safety of GA2020 delegates at the forefront of our decision making. We will follow advice of the World Health Organisation and will comply with the requirements of the Australian Government.

We may issue a revised registration timetable and updated cancellation and refund policy – and would do so well before the current GA2020 early bird registration date of 3 June 2020.
