Due to the Covid-19 outbreak in New South Wales and Victoria, the Australian Medicinal Cannabis Symposium has been postponed until October 2021.

The symposium, which was due to run from August 13-15 at the Novotel Twin Waters Resort, Maroochydore, Queensland will now take place from October 29-31 at the same venue.

Symposium organiser and United In Compassion co-founder Lucy Haslam said: “I will endeavour to keep the program unchanged although some minor adjustments will occur to accommodate speaker availability.”

As well as in-person tickets, virtual tickets are now available for the live-stream of the October event. Until capacity is reached, all tickets are priced at the early bird rates.

Ticketholders for the original dates will be able to attend the October symposium as their tickets will remain valid.

Haslam urged those who cannot attend the new dates to request a refund via the link on their ticket.

She added: “Please accept my sincere apologies for the changes. I would like to thank our sponsors who remain very supportive.”
