2012 APCO Australasia Conference and Exhibition
With the rising frequency and magnitude of natural disasters in recent times, the 2012 APCO (Association of Public Safety Communication Officials) Conference and Exhibition will focus on topics such as building resilient communities, multi-agency cooperation, preparedness and sustainability of our people, systems and resources.
The event encourages information sharing, growth of new knowledge, professional development for the public safety sector as well as networking opportunities for emergency management professionals and exposure to local and international vendors.
We are expecting in excess of 850 attendees on the Gold Coast, which will include a cross section of members and representatives from emergency service organisations, local state and federal government and security agencies, from high level management to volunteers. In times of crises it is not only our emergency responders that are called on, we recognise that many industries have an important role to play, such as utility providers, transport, mining, defence and finance.
