Learnings from one of the first international conferences in 2020 to run in-person and hybrid

By Brisbane Convention & Exhibiton Centre, 7 April, 2021

COVID-19 caused the postponement and cancellation of most major conferences in Australia in 2020. Against that backdrop, the largest drone congress in the Asia Pacific region adapted to a combined face-to-face and virtual event, bringing together global leaders in the drone and robotic space in November 2020.

Defying all odds, World of Drones & Robotics Congress (WoDaRC) actually expanded in 2020, uniting drones and robotics under the one conference banner, with record results.

Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC), one of the very first convention centres in Australia to re-open for business during 2020, has successfully hosted 266 events and welcomed 117,416 patrons since reopening in August and was easily able to host the event with COVID Safe practices in place.

We thought you might like to hear from Congress Co-Founder Carillon’s Ashley Gordon on the learnings and challenges of this hybrid Congress and read the case study of one of our most successful international events held in the era of COVID.
