Convention Postponed until 2021

Beyond Digital Continuity, Canberra 12- 15 October                                                                                                                                          

Now in its 37th year, the RIMPA Live convention is held annually and is the organisations flagship event, bringing together information/records/data management professionals, key decision makers and trade vendors from a range of organisations across all industry sectors in Australasia. It is the perfect platform for delegates to exchange ideas, rub shoulders with industry influencers and walk away inspired! 

This year's convention will be delivered as a hybrid event. Whether you attend face to face or from the comfort of your own home or office, you still have access to inspirational speakers, professional development workshops, vendor insights and unbeatable networking opportunities – centred on an exhibition showcasing the latest technology, the latest thinking, industry innovations and best practice from around Australasia.

The theme for 2020 is ‘Beyond Digital Continuity’, showcasing various ways the profession is approaching and moving beyond:

  • digital futurism and leadership, approaching the modern and ambitious approaches that organisations are taking to enhance current practice in records,

  • information and data management, to keep pace with the ever-increasing amount of the future needs for the industry

  • enhancing the skill set of practitioners and providing them with their very own toolbox to move beyond, digital continuity
