Dear Battery Community
The world is recalibrating and coming back to life. Here is Australia we are certainly looking towards 2022 with a renewed sense of openness and optimism. Scientists by nature are explorers, they will be the first to take up the opportunity to travel; their thirst for knowledge and to knowledge share is part of their DNA.
Sydney is fast approaching a 70% double vaccination target, with 80% reached by years end. It is at this stage our beautiful harbour city will open her doors to the world. We are further encouraged that Qantas is now taking bookings for international flights before they resume in mid-December, with Sydney to Singapore among the first to be available. With Singapore Airlines, Air New Zealand and British Airways also offering international travel by the end of 2021.
Proof of vaccination is already required in contexts around the globe by governments and private companies for people seeking to travel, meet and attend events. We can expect a similar scenario here in Sydney. As yet how the passport will roll out in Australia is still being discussed but we will keep you informed as information is provided to us. The signs are all positive that Sydney will be the hub for IMLB 2022.
Confidence from industry remains strong with a bevy of international support on-board six months in advance!
So, it is with this energetic sense of enthusiasm and optimism, we are thrilled to open registration for IMLB 2022 ahead of schedule to enable you to make tentative plans for your passage to Australia.
