COVID-19 update

With COVID-19 restrictions starting to ease in most states, we're forging ahead with our plans for the conference to proceed as planned in the Hunter Valley from 28-31 October 2020. We are monitoring the situation around the pandemic and continue to seek advice from the relevant government authorities. Should we be forced to cancel RMA20, we will provide a 100% refund to all registrants.

We encourage you to visit our COVID-19 RMA20 updates webpage for FAQs and information on our refund and cancellation policy. Still have questions? Feel free to get in touch with our conference team by emailing RMAconference@acrrm.org.au.  

The Hunter Valley

With over 150 wineries, restaurants aplenty, sweeping landscapes, mobs of kangaroos, and just a two hour drive north of Sydney (or less than an hour from Newcastle), Lovedale in the Hunter Valley is a fabulous destination for RMA and a great place to catch up with friends and colleagues from all across Australia.

With the whole conference being held at the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley, we want to make your time at RMA20 even better by showing you everything you can see, do and experience onsite. With a range of options available, feel free to bring the whole family! Visit the RMA-ville page for some ideas.
