How to navigate the virtual conference
How it works
The Public Practice Virtual Conference is an interactive online experience designed to provide you with an enhanced calibre of content and a worthwhile experience.
The one-day conference will feature an exclusive mix of keynote speakers, panels, pre-recorded content, resources and networking opportunities.
With flexibility and convenience our priority, we’re pleased to provide you with access to the virtual environment for four weeks post-conference, until Thursday 15 September 2022. The live sessions will be recorded and available for viewing within 24 to 48 hours. Post-conference, you may continue to explore the environment, chat with attending participants and access resources. However, sponsor booths will be unattended, and some features will be disabled.
Tickets are available for purchase by all CPA Australia members, colleagues from the wider profession, business professionals from all industries and any interested members of the public.
In addition to the existing search and chat options, new features have been added to enhance connection between attendees, including:
- 1-on-1 video chatting between delegates
- scheduled meetings with sponsors
- finding like-minded colleagues with the matchmaking tool.
The program will comprise up to 10-12 total CPD hours distributed across all sessions (the total will reflect the sum of final session durations).
Please note, you are welcome to re-watch sessions, however a time cap for that session will apply equivalent to that session duration. As a CPA Australia member, your CPD Diary will be updated automatically within the two weeks after Thursday 15 September 2022. Non-members are requested to manually track their hours.
You will receive a reminder email 24-48 hours before the event with login and access details. The event will be delivered through a virtual event platform. We recommend you run a system check prior to the event. You are also advised to perform a live stream test to ensure you are able to watch via the integrated webcast software.
