SERVSIG 2020 Social Functions
The ServSIG social functions will allow you to experience Brisbane at it’s best. We welcome you to bring your partner along to all events and the casual dinner at the Queensland Museum is also a child-friendly event, so you can bring along the whole family. We hope that you will join us!
To better equip you for the conference and social functions, please note that during July, winter weather in Brisbane is an average of 21°C/68.0°F in the day and 10°C/50.0°F at night. The days are usually clear skies and sunshine; however, we do get an occasional drop of rain, so an umbrella could come in handy at times. We recommend a hat and sunglasses by day and a light jacket at night.
