Gather 2020

Cancellation notification

It is with regret that Brisbane Catholic Education has made the decision not to proceed with the Gather 2020 conference planned to be held from 23–26 August 2020 at the Royal International Convention Centre, Brisbane, Australia.

As the Australian Government’s response to COVID-19 continues to strengthen, there is uncertainty in relation to future international travel and mass gatherings. Given this unprecedented situation, the decision to cancel has been made in the best interest of all our delegates, presenters and the wider national and international community.

We wish to thank all the speakers and presenters who had agreed to take part in the conference. Without the kindness of these people, Gather 2020 would not have been possible.
