PAA Conference 2021 – 3-5 September

The dates are set for the PAA Conference 2021 and we’re going virtual!

We’re excited to welcome you to our first ever virtual conference featuring an impressive line up of international and national presenters.

Introducing the first of our international presenters

The PAA is excited to announce confirmation of our first three international guests to be presenting at the PAA Conference in September 2021:  Cara Reeser,  Jeremy Laverdure and Elaine Ewing.

Watch this space to see who will be joining them!

Curated Content

After a fast paced and exciting application process (time is pressing!) the workshops for our two stream, three day event have now been selected and the schedule will be released very soon.

Content has been carefully curated with a mix of practical and theory to provide something for everyone: there will be interactive and engaging online virtual workshops, in-studio and virtual classes, and on demand replays of every workshop.

In a PAA first, thanks to the versatility of an online environment, delegates will be able to enjoy DOUBLE THE VALUE of a PAA live conference. You’ll have the chance to experience every workshop of both streams that are scheduled for your chosen ticket.

And this time the fun doesn’t end on Sunday! – All workshops are being recorded and will be available for on demand viewing for 14 days after the conference*.

Virtual Exhibition

We may not be meeting in person, but you can still catch some conference offers and specials! Through the magic of the event platform all your favourite exhibitors will be present in virtual exhibition booths to share demonstrations, answer your queries and arrange one to one meetings.

Going virtual offers great opportunities for engagement between delegates and sponsors, so let us know if you would like to feature your product or service at the conference.

What to Expect from PAAC 2021…

The PAA virtual conference platform

Before choosing where to host the PAA 2021 conference we searched long and hard for an event platform which would help us forget that we aren’t able to meet in person – obviously that will always be the preference, but travel for international presenters is still impossible and sadly, the pandemic situation itself is still too unpredictable.

Interactive Attendee Hub

Once you have purchased your ticket you have a whole virtual world to explore in the Attendee Hub. Use the interactive schedule to choose and adjust your workshop selection, bound only by the limits of your ticket selection. Network with friends, visit the exhibitors, watch replays and join in the fun.

Personalised schedule

Purchase your ticket first and then build your schedule later! Amazing flexibility to switch workshops and choose exactly what see when – participate live now, or watch later with on demand video.

Live streamed workshops, on demand replays

Workshops will be streamed live as they happen, Zoom style, so you can participate and ask questions. Replays will be available to watch again later on demand. Watch all the content available on your chosen ticket, either live as it happens or up to 14 days later as a replay.

Virtual exhibitors

The ever popular exhibition room will be transformed into a digital experience. Visit your favourite suppliers in their virtual exhibition booths for conference offers, demonstrations and specials. Need a serious chat before deciding to purchase that new equipment? In your Attendee Hub you’ll be able to book an appointment for a one to one meeting with the exhibitor.
