In support of community safety with the emergence of COVID-19, we have reached the difficult decision to POSTPONE our INSPIRE 2020 Summit which was scheduled to be held on 7-8 April at the Crown Convention Centre.

NEW DATES: Tuesday 30 March – Wednesday 31 March 2021
Crown Ballroom 3, Burswood, WA

We have taken this decision because it is clear, based on events over recent days, that holding large public meetings is not a good idea. 
All those that have registered to attend INSPIRE will remain registered for the new dates and if these do not suit, you will be able to request a full refund up until a month out from the new event dates by contacting
We have confirmed that Crown will cancel all accommodation bookings made through the special Inspire rate link without charge.  If you have any problems with your accommodation booking please contact Crowns Group Reservations Co-ordinator Tania Mondon directly on | ph: 08 9362 7966
For those that have made flight bookings, Qantas are giving customers who hold tickets the ability to cancel their booking and retain the value as travel credit. The offer is available until 31 March 2020 for travel booked up to 31 May 2020 and applies to all Qantas and QantasLink services. Full information can be found on the Qantas website:

We believe that postponing this event will provide peace of mind to our INSPIRE 2020 participants and their families and we would like to thank our guest speakers, sponsors and funding bodies and those that had already registered to attend the day.  Your support of Inspire is very much appreciated.

For general enquiries, please contact and please continue to refer to for up to date advice on COVID-19.

Thank you for your understanding and support,
Bron Fox
Chair, Rural Edge
