Frequently Asked Questions

How is ARSC 2021 different from previous conferences?

ARSC 2021 will be a virtual event to accommodate delegates from anywhere in the world.  This format will bring together road safety stakeholders and decision-makers from Australasia and international jurisdictions to facilitate collaboration and information sharing in a way that has not previously been possible.

Why is ARSC 2021 going virtual?

The decision for ARSC 2021 to be presented completely virtually was made due to the changing COVID-19 restrictions.

The ARSC 2021 Organising Committee had been developing a hybrid conference to accommodate the  ongoing travel related restrictions due to the pandemic however the continued and increasing restrictions have meant that going totally virtual is the right choice. Making ARSC 2021 more accessible helps the conference achieve its underlying mission to facilitate the transfer of knowledge across all sectors, upgrading skills and building road safety capacity and to increase diversity and inclusion across all sectors and communities.
