Networking Opportunities

 Meeting your fellow attendees, speakers, and exhibitors is a big part of the value of attending a World Congress. Don’t miss the invaluable informal opportunities to connect at the Welcome Networking Reception at Melbourne Public, South Wharf and the WFCP 2018 Congress Dinner and WFCP Awards of Excellence Presentation at The Peninsula, Docklands. In addition we will have an Inspiration Hub and private meeting rooms to kick-start new partnerships. Lunch, morning and afternoon tea breaks, including closing drinks on Wednesday afternoon, will be served in the exhibition area allowing you to make connections and talk with your peers and to take the chance to actively participate in product and service demonstrations on the exhibition floor. You can also arrange private one-to-one meetings with other delegates in advance through the registration portal.


Welcome Networking Reception

Melbourne Public, South Wharf (2 minute walk from MCEC)

5.15-7.15pm, Monday 8 October

In an informal setting over drinks and canapes, the Welcome Networking Reception will give you the opportunity to catch up with friends and colleagues as well as meet new contacts and connect with education and government leaders. The Welcome Reception will immediately follow the Opening Ceremony on Monday afternoon.

The Welcome Networking Reception is included for full congress delegates although you do need to indicate you will be attending when registering. Tickets for other delegates or guests are $110 each. Bookings will close 2 weeks before the Congress.
