Things are different now. Better different!

In 2020, over 640 delegates registered for the CMA online conference, and attended 45 online sessions. In 2021, we're going hybrid to get the best of both worlds: in-real-life for those who prefer to bump elbows with our national speakers and audience, AND online for those who can't easily access Melbourne. In 2020 we made a quick pivot, used a home-made portal, and just Zoomed a lot. it worked fine, but it was a one-off. In 2021, it's going to be so much better!

What's Different in 2021?

Attend online, or join us in Melbourne. Network in-real-time with both physical and virtual delegates, sponsors and exhibitors!

We're investing heavily in technology and apps, for the most interactive experience ever - whether you're in Melbourne or Toronto!

More international speakers, because they'll be presenting virtually - to both the in-house audience and the online audience.

In-person attendance may be capped because of venue restrictions. Capacities will be regularly updated, but if you prefer in-person attendance, get in early!

ALL attendees will have access to recorded sessions even when the conference is over. So you won't miss too many of those "which do I go to?" elective clashes!

Sponsors and exhibitors can have physical AND online booths, meaning much wider reach.
What's NOT changing in 2021?

CMA's unique mix of church, ministry and Christian business topics to help you develop your organisation.

Our high-quality faculty of nearly 50 presenters, representing experts from all facets of Australian ministry leadership, governance and management

The great food, networking and fellowship of the Melbourne Convention Centre facility for those attending in-person.

A chance to meet with a wide range of sponsors and exhibitors who provide products, services and ministries to support your work.

The program is now under development, and although the event will focus on the two days (31 May and 1 June) there will be some online pre- and post-conference components as well.

Registration for the ONLINE Conference is open now with super-early-bird pricing until January 15th, when prices will increase. Registration for the IN-PERSON conference will open soon, after we hold further discussions with the convention centre.

In 2021, sponsors and exhibitors will, for the first time, have options for both the IN-PERSON event, and the ONLINE event. In our event platform evaluations, we rejected literally dozens of hybrid event platforms, simply because they lacked sufficient sponsorship and exhibition features. We're investing significantly in a top-shelf hybrid event platform, both to ensure a great overall experience for all delegates, and also to provide sponsors and exhibitors with a fully featured means of engaging with delegates.
