The Australian & New Zealand Disaster and Emergency Management Conference provides a forum to examine the issues surrounding natural and man-made hazards. It is a joint initiative of the Australian Institute of Emergency Services, the Australian and New Zealand Mental Health Association Inc and the Association for Sustainability in Business Inc. Each association is a Non-Government, Not for Profit, member based organisation.
The program format consists of keynote addresses, concurrent sessions and workshops.
Following the successfull conference this year, the next event will be held on the Gold Coast in May 2014.
Overseas visitors to Australia must have a valid passport, and in most cases a 'short stay business visitor visa' and it is strongly recommended that conference attendees take out insurance policies to cover medical and travel expenses.
