The Dietitians Australia 2022 Conference will take all reasonable steps to provide the safest possible environment for conference delegates, speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, staff and suppliers. The Conference organising committee are guided by the relevant State and Federal Government guidelines, and advice from the World Health Organisation, to ensure the event meets our COVID-safe obligations.
The Conference organising committee will work closely with the venue, Adelaide Convention Centre, and suppliers to develop and implement a COVID-safe event plan, to protect the health and safety of attendees, staff, suppliers and our communities.
COVID-safe event principles include:
- Physical distancing
- COVID-safe food service
- Enhanced cleaning and sanitation
- Attendee check-in and contact tracing
We encourage you to check restrictions in South Australia, Australia and your local area closer to the conference date to ensure you understand any travel restrictions and/or health directives that may apply. We will be keeping abreast of developments and provide updates as needed. www.covid-19.sa.gov.au

In Adelaide the average temperatures in July are 9 – 16C (48-60F). Visitors traveling to Adelaide should plan on bringing a totally waterproof rain jacket since it will often be raining. Plan on layering your clothes as some days or part of the day it will be nice and warm and some moments it can be a bit chilly.
We recommend smart, business casual dress for the conference days plus a jacket, cardigan or wrap, and for the social functions – this is an opportunity to step out in style, dress to impress.
