COVID-19 update

With the resurgence of COVID-19 in Victoria and New South Wales and the changes to restrictions evolving, we have made the decision to postpone this year’s conference until 24-27 February 2021. This decision supports our commitment to put the health and safety of delegates, sponsors, staff, families, colleagues and communities first. We encourage you to continue to check the NSW Health and NSW Government websites for the latest information on restrictions. 

The RMA Conference team commit to continuing to communicate with you over the weeks and months ahead and encourage you to refer to the Refund and Cancellation Policy for further details.

Health and Safety

The conference organisers will consult with government authorities, the conference venue and COVID-19 clinical advisors to ensure all regulations and health and safety measures are in place at RMA20. However, the risk of transmission of viral illness, including COVID-19, remains and this must be considered by all attendees for their own personal circumstances, including any health condition or vulnerability that they may have, or that of persons they will be in close contact with following attendance at RMA20. It is important to note, for a small number of people, COVID-19 has very serious health consequences. By attending RMA20, attendees acknowledge and accept these risks.


It is recommended all attendees download the Australian Government COVIDSafe app, and have it running on their phones with Bluetooth enabled at all times throughout the duration of the conference, including pre- and post- conference activities.


Entry Conditions
Due to COVID-19, additional venue restrictions will apply at RMA20. Information will be continually updated and communicated via the various conference communication platforms. 

The current entry conditions are as follows:

  • Anyone unwell or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms (no matter how minor) in the days prior to the event must notify the conference organisers before arrival at RMA or any of the pre-conference activities
  • Anyone unwell or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms (no matter how minor) after arrival at RMA or any of the pre-conference activities must self-isolate immediately and contact the conference organisers
  • Social distancing must be practised at all times keeping 1.5m between yourself and others
