Cancellation of Symposium 2020

We have made the extremely difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Welcoming Cities Symposium.

We have been actively monitoring the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic; and, after conversations with our event partners – Scanlon Foundation, ACT Government and Department of Home Affairs – we believe this is the correct course of action.

While the Symposium remains a low risk event, the risk remains, and it is incumbent on us to lead in the best interests of public health and safety.
