CONNECT21 will be a ‘hybrid’ In-Person and Virtual event in 2021 and promises to be a truly engaging and unifying experience.
The CONNECT21 experience will be different… but in a good way!
The Conference is destined to be In-Person on the Gold Coast, in addition to a Virtual Experience Worldwide - over 3 days – April 20 to 22. An additional day for the Media Symposium focusing on future leadership will be In-Person only on April 23rd.
The In-Person portion of both events will be restricted due to COVID-19 guidelines, meaning tickets are strictly limited, and ticketing will close for each event, once numbers are filled.
As our nation and the world rebuilds after COVID19 – we believe Christian Media and Arts organisations are well-placed to play a leading role in the spiritual, cultural and economic rebuilding that will occur. Our hope is that this conference will help leaders to be equipped to respond to the key challenges they will face in meeting this task.
One >< Many
The CONNECT experience is always connected to focus areas of:
- Raising the standard of excellence in Christian Media and The Arts
- Facilitating greater collaboration, and
- Increasing individual and collective reach and influence.
To this end we are going to be placing higher value and importance on ‘lived’ conversations in 2021.
The CONNECT21 Experience is all about helping you and your team to Think well, Create well and Speak well into lives, society and culture. Our dream is to see 50% of the population engaged each month through our collective media reach by 2030. This is why CONNECT21 is being designed as a catalyst that will help advance our individual and collective excellence, unity, reach and influence
It’s also why CONNECT21 is focused on coming together as ONE in order to reach MANY.
