The 2020 edition of NoVacancy has been postponed to 24-25 September, 2020. As a result of increasing concerns and uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 / Coronavirus, and with the health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, and staff our top priority, this was deemed the appropriate decision at the time. With many of our exhibitors and visitors facing travel and event restrictions we decided it best to make the decision now, rather than closer to the event with more ramifications for all involved.
NoVacancy will take place on 24-25 September at the ICC Sydney Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour, Sydney.
Yes. If you have already registered your ticket is valid for the 24-25 September dates. There is no need to re-register, a reminder ticket will be sent to you in the days leading up to the event.
NoVacancy will take place 1-2 June 2021 as previously planned.
