National Conference 2020 Update

Due to increasing travel restrictions and social distancing requirements, the AAA has made the very difficult decision to cancel this year’s National Conference in Sydney.


With existing restrictions likely to be in place for at least six months, and the very limited ability for industry to participate in these types of events for the remainder of the year, the AAA Board agreed it was no longer viable to proceed with National Conference this year.

The AAA will fully refund any organisations that have already committed to partner or exhibit as part of this event.

Thank you to all members who submitted a speaker nomination for the 2020 National Conference. We will keep these nominations on file and will hopefully be in a position to use all relevant suggested topics for the 2021 National Conference.

The cancellation of National Conference will also include the cancellation of our National Industry Awards and the Women in Airports Forum for this year.

We will provide information regarding the 2021 National Conference as soon as we can. If you have any questions regarding the 2020 or 2021 National Conferences please email [email protected].
