You can if it’s advertised as such. ‘Delegate only’ sessions apply only to delegates registered for a single day or three days. There are however some keynotes, workshops and spaces that will be available to the public and all will be marked as ‘Open to the Public’ where appropriate. This includes the exhibition floor at the Art Gallery of WA, exhibits at PICA and at the Kaos Theatre and Beer & Board Games at Studio Startup.
There’s two types of conference registration. You can register for a single and specific day or for three days. Each type allows you access to all sessions on that day or throughout the conference. It/they also allows for:

All venues except Studio Startup are wheelchair accessible. We are however not able to provide Auslan to most sessions but will where possible. Please contact us should you wish to discuss further.
We’ll be having as much diversity of content as possible. There’ll be playable games, VR experiences dealing with educational and training, experiences from the CSIRO and other science-based organisations, medicine and research, emergency responding and art and architecture. It’s perfect for those wanting to explore career opportunities or talk directly with people working in the field.
Of course! You can hire a table or a trade booth to your specifications. Each booth comes with signage, power, table and lights. All you need to do is turn up. We can provide you with excellent rates for display monitors and other equipment should you require.
You can email right here (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’d like to join a panel, present research, display a game, have your organisation platformed, provide a keynote or otherwise be directly involved in the event. We’re open to any and all suggestions and topics.
We maintain an ethical partnership agenda and we welcome in-kind and cash partnerships with all manner of organisations, companies or individuals who also have ethical interests at heart. Partnering with the event may include presenting keynote, talks and workshops, branding spaces, powering our volunteers or presenting events. We’re open to any input and collaboration and not contribution is taken for granted, so email us if you’d like to support the event.
