Events and Conferences

CCAV Conferences

CCAV hold two annual conferences for members; these include the country conference held in regional Victoria during the first half of the year, and the annual conference held in the second half of the year.

A not to be missed conference where you will learn, discover and hear from peers around all things cemetery, industry experts, guest speakers and a few local sights and mysteries.

The committee are planning some very informative and topical speakers so that you will leave the couple of days with new ideas, new methods, solutions to existing challenges and key contacts to further support you and your cemetery moving into 2023 and beyond.

A mid-week conference, providing options for three days or just two days of information.

The Exhibition will showcase local and national suppliers to the Australian cemetery industry; their latest and greatest products, answer your questions and let you explore what is available to your cemetery. Providing solutions for record management, mapping, memorialisation, security, wayfinding, maintenance and horticulture, environmental & sustainable solutions and many more – well worth the time to talk and look through their offerings!

There will be an opportunity to take a tour though the local cemeteries that will showcase:

  • QR Guided Tours
  • Environmental and Sustainable Practices
  • Accessibility around the cemetery
  • History and Capturing those stories for the future
  • Local Wadawrrung Burials and customs at the cemetery

The Conference Guest Speakers are still being invited and secured, but they will be new and will provide information relevant to your cemetery, the management, the safety and the future planning.

So as we continue to organise this conference occasion we hope you highlight these dates in your diaries and on your calendar, please arrange for those who are interested from your cemetery to come along for an immersive couple of days.

More information on the schedule & registrations will be coming out in the new year.
