Monday 9th November - Thursday 12th November 2015
RMIT and University of Melbourne, Melbourne, VIC, Australia
AETM 2015 Conference Programme
The AETM conference is a great opportunity for AV professionals to see, learn and connect.
The theme of this years conference is COLLABORATION

In keeping with the 2015 conference theme of collaboration, both RMIT and the University of Melbourne will be providing campus tours showcasing their respective new buildings. In-depth tours of the Swanston Academic Building and the Melbourne School of Design will be offered. The conference and accommodation will be held right in the heart of the bustling and eclectic CBD of Melbourne.

Along with the detailed campus tours expect inspired talks from industry professionals, vendor and committee member presentations showcasing new technologies, approaches and experiences of a wildly diverse and ever-changing sector. This year’s conference looks to be a busy, exciting and thoroughly entertaining time for all.

We have an excellent conference organised for you at RMIT & UoM in Melbourne and our hosts will provide us with some great campus tours during your stay.

Our hotel of choice for your stay is Rydges Melbourne (bookings on Registration website) as this is where the last two days of the conference will be held due to the size of the conference exhibition.

This year we will have another great exhibition space with some sponsors and exhibitors from previous years along with many new exhibitors. Our major sponsors this year are AMX, Crestron, Extron, Panasonic and Epson.

Please register now so you won’t be disappointed!!
