Event Details

The interactive virtual hub provides you with access to our full IWD 2021 program of speakers. You can watch the headline speakers in the main auditorium, move between virtual rooms streaming the local live events, immerse yourself in UN Women stories and projects, or make a life-changing donation.

The IWD presentations can be watched live or for up to a week post event (subject to approvals from our speakers).

Formal proceedings will be no more than 2 hours. We have allowed for registration time in the published event timings. Please refer to the our event pages for the timings of the events in each city.

We will deliver an exciting line-up of keynote speakers, led by a well-respected MC. Our line- up is continually evolving as we confirm new international and local presenters. Please refer to the website for the latest information.

Yes, you will be required to check in on arrival due to current COVID-19 regulations. Please have your ticket barcode ready for scanning (either printed or on your phone). You will be told your table number as you check-in. Our friendly volunteers will be on hand to provide assistance and direct you to your table.

Dress code is smart casual for the event.

The events’ content will be available to access via the hub for one week after the event. This will be subject to speaker permissions.

All events will include two courses. For the lunches a drink will be served on arrival and we will then be operating a cash bar.

Ticket sales will close on Thursday 25 February, unless sold out prior.

The preferred way to purchase tickets and to secure a table is to book online with a credit card, which guarantees your ticket/table selection immediately. We strongly encourage payment by credit card due to the popularity of the event as tables sell out quickly. Please click here to book online.

Should you wish to pay via EFT and require an invoice, we are able to arrange this separately for you.  Please contact [email protected].  Note that payment terms for the invoice are strictly 7 days. The invoice does not confirm your table until payment has been made. If payment is not received within the 7 day terms, the table may be returned for sale and the invoice cancelled.

Each registration triggers a unique link so please do not share your confirmation email. If your ticket is forwarded to others, only the first person to use it will be granted access so you may be blocked and will not be able to gain access on event day.
