APPEA 2020 is postponed



The conference and the exhibition are open only to paid delegates and invited guests (it is not open to the general public), ensuring the people you meet are the people you need to meet—other oil and gas industry professionals.

Full and day delegate registrations are now open. All other registration categories will open later in the year.

We are actively monitoring the potential impact of the COVID-19 coronavirus on our activities and currently do not anticipate making any change in plans to APPEA 2020. As the situation evolves, the health and safety of event attendees, exhibitors, and staff will be our highest priority and guide any decisions that we make. Please contact us if you have any other questions.

Attendance offer to displaced industry personnel
Recognising the impact of the difficult operating environment that confronts many in the industry, APPEA is offering a special registration arrangement for the APPEA Conference and Exhibition. The Association is making available a limited number of scholarship entries to the Conference for displaced geoscientists and energy specialists in the Australian industry. Eligible individuals will be offered a discount on entry fees for full or day attendance. This will allow eligible individuals to attend technical and business concurrent sessions and networking events as well as allowing entry to the Exhibition. Some special one-day Exhibition passes are also being made available.

Industry bodies and associations
APPEA is currently in negotiations with specific industry bodies and associations to offer special registration rates for their members for the APPEA 2020 Conference & Exhibition. If special rates are available, they will be advertised through the individual bodies and associations. For immediate details at present, please contact Julie Hood, Director Events, APPEA  +61 7 3231 0501
