We regret to advise that due to the ongoing health crisis the LibertyFest Perth event has been cancelled.

We have taken the West Australian Government Health Department guidelines into account when making the decision to cancel the conference.

The West Australian government guidelines can be found here: https://healthywa.wa.gov.au/coronavirus
Federal Government guidelines: https://www.health.gov.au/health-topics/novel-coronavirus-2019-ncov

Whilst we are very disappointed that we are unable to showcase the speeches, ideas and event preparation we are in no doubt this is the most responsible course of action considering the potential health implications for conference attendees and the community.

We apologise for the inconvenience this decision may have caused you. Thank you for your commitment to LibertyFest and hope that we can continue our association after this health crisis is dealt with.
