CONNECT Event in 2021 Will Be an Experience Like No Other

CONNECT Event in 2021 Will Be an Experience Like No Other

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!

With this year already feeling like an extension of 2020 with unending disruption, spontaneous border closures, and a virus yet to be fully managed CMAA have made the difficult yet judicious decision to change the date and structure of CONNECT21.

The Conference is destined to be In-Person on the Gold Coast for 1 day, to complete a Virtual Experience - over 5 days – August 30 to September 3.

The In-Person portion 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:

  1. Raising the standard of excellence in Christian Media and The Arts
  2. Facilitating greater collaboration, and
  3. 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.

CONNECT21 Event Format

In 2021 the CONNECT experience format has been redesigned to combine 2 experiences in one:

  1. Daily Professional Development
    A ‘professional development’ style 'conversation mini-series' with daily episodes from Monday August 30th to Friday September 3rd. Each day's episode will comprise short and sharp keynotes from industry leaders and experts that will challenge and inspire you and your team. It will take no more than 90 minutes out of your day, as these sessions will run approximately 60 minutes with a further 30 minutes for an Interactive LIVE Q&A.
  2. In-Person Connection and Celebration
    A full day face to face event on Friday September 3rd on the Gold Coast (incorporating the 90 minute daily Virtual session), concluding with a Live Streamed Celebration Awards Dinner.
