Event Format

RPAS in Australian Skies 2022 will be a hybrid event incorporating face to face (live) and online (virtual) choices for participants.

Conference participants will be able to register as a Live or Virtual delegate where:

  • Live registration includes attendance to the conference in person in Canberra, and
  • Virtual registration includes attendance to the conference via an online virtual platform and does not give the ability to attend in person.

The conference will include both formal presentations and audience interactive panel sessions.

There will be an opportunity for international virtual presentations streamed to the conference as well as virtual attendance.

In addition, there will be exhibition space for exhibitors and sponsors at the venue.

There will be plenty of time to network throughout the event during fully catered morning, afternoon and lunch breaks.

The event will also include the AAUS Gala Dinner featuring the AAUS Industry Awards.
