Technology in the Tropics 2021 – Together Again: Face to Face

Regretably this event has been cancelled for 2021.

With recent lockdowns well-advertised in Melbourne, ACT, NT, NSW, Brisbane and Cairns; we have had to very seriously consider if the 3rd of September would be at all possible.

Cairns’ people are still wearing masks until Sunday when a review will be taken. The Premier may lift the restrictions but can then reimpose them at any time. There is now too much uncertainty around what tomorrow (let alone 2 weeks’ time) might be like.

This uncertainty and Covid fear have had a predictable flow on effect to the number of registrations that we have received as well.

Date:   Friday 3rd September, 2021 — Pupil Free Day
