The Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) has made the decision to cancel the National Native Title Conference 2020 (NTC20), as a result of the changing and widespread impacts of COVID-19.

This decision was not taken lightly and was reached in partnership with our co-convenors, NTSCORP and the Minjungbal Bundjalung traditional owners to ensure the health and wellbeing of all delegates, the local community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities across Australia.

We continue to value opportunities for exchange and learning and are looking at innovative ways to create connections, share views and facilitate the evolution of the native title sector. 

We intend to convene the conference in its full format in future when it is safe to do so and thank you for your ongoing support and understanding during this time.


The NTC20 online event co-ordinator, InHouse Event Solutions will be emailing those who have registered and booked accommodation via the NTC20 Registration and Accommodation website.

Registration fees will be fully refunded for those who have paid to attend the conference.


For those who made accommodation bookings via the NTC20 Registration and Accommodation website, InHouse Event Solutions will manage cancellations.

On your behalf, InHouse Event will cancel your accommodation bookings and arrange refunds. You do not need to contact the hotel.

If you booked accommodation directly with a hotel or via a third party website (outside of the NTC20 Registration site), we advise you to cancel the accommodation booking immediately.
