About the Event

TCI OCEANIA CONFERENCE 2020: CLUSTERING FOR POSITIVE FUTURES

This 3 Part Webinar Series is an opportunity for Australian/Oceania cluster practitioners and stakeholders to connect, share information and experiences on how clusters are navigating through turbulent times. Being equipped with this knowledge has never been more critical than today, especially with Australia’s recent Black Summer, and now the global COVID-19 pandemic.

A selection of international and local experts in clustering, disaster recovery and transformational change will present the latest information on these topics and will also be available live for Q&A. There also will be opportunities for exploring how clusters can collaborate with others to support businesses, regions and countries in building positive futures.

Join us online to hear from world experts in clustering and disaster recovery.
