Success of digital AFAC underscores INTERSCHUTZ industry cohesion
The first virtual event in the 26-year history of AFAC21, the Australian Fire, Rescue and Civil Protection Conference Exhibition, was a great success and underscores the positive spirit and cohesion of an entire industry.15 Nov 2021
In total, more than 2,500 attendees gathered online over four days. 120 presentations from seven sectors, nine high-profile keynotes, and 37 digital exhibitors formed the content core of the new digital edition, the AFAC21 Virtual Conference and Exhibition, which took place October 5-8, 2021.
Due to pandemics, this year AFAC was held on a state-of-the-art, interactive digital platform. The event was complemented by the Institute of Fire Engineers (IFE) Australia Conference and the Australian Disaster Resilience Conference (ADRC), as well as a day dedicated to professional development.
Online sessions, which were very well attended throughout, covered a variety of topics such as: Prescribed Burning, Simulation and Data, Cultural Land Management, Community Engagement, Mental Health and Well-Being, Climate Change and the Environment, and Volunteerism.
The professional development program focused on managing extreme wildfires and provided participants with the opportunity to expand their knowledge and skills while connecting virtually with colleagues.
Unique virtual exhibition
AFAC21 Virtual was held virtually in a state-of-the-art digital environment that was modeled after the ICC in Sydney in its visual representation. During this unique digital event, a total of 37 exhibitors showcased their latest and greatest solutions, technologies and services.
Following the huge success of AFAC21 Virtual, preparations have already begun for AFAC22, which will be held in Adelaide from August 23-26, 2022. For more information, visit www.afacconference.com.au .
