With less than one week to go until APP2021 (APP), attendees are being reminded of a few changes to this year’s conference on the Gold Coast to make the event COVID safe for everyone.

Kos Sclavos AM, APP Convenor and former Guild National President, said many delegates will be familiar with check-in processes and physical distancing and that with a bit of preparation, APP will be a seamless experience.

“This year APP will be run a little differently to previous years, but rest assured you can still have a great time reconnecting with colleagues, learning, visiting the sold-out trade exhibition to meet with suppliers and having lots of fun at the social events,” Mr. Sclavos said.

“We’ve all adjusted to COVID when doing things like travelling through an airport and APP is no different – take a moment to download the apps you need, check out the program, book your name badge collection window, and familiarise yourself with the conference entry points.

“This will be a COVID-safe event – we'll all have to check in daily and other precautions, such as perspex screens, socially distanced seating and COVID ushers, will be in place.

“Most importantly, with a little bit of planning, no one will miss out on any APP activities or sessions,” said Mr. Sclavos, “as well as physically distancing attendees in the main sessions, attendees can enjoy the sessions live in comfortable overflow seating areas.”

Mr Sclavos reminded attendees of the need to download the relevant apps.

“Once again we’ve got an APP2021 conference app available for free via the Apple App Store and via Google Play. However, new this year, everyone attending will also have to use the Queensland Government ‘Check in Qld’ app to check in to the venues.

“You can’t beat the APP2021 Conference app for a COVID-safe way to view the program, CPD information and trade exhibition details, and to exchange contact details”

For those who have not yet registered, Mr. Sclavos said there was still a little time left to sign up and attend.
“This year’s program is one of the best I’ve seen,” said Mr Sclavos, “we’re really looking forward to seeing everyone face-to-face again.”
