High Profile Events (HPE) has recently updated their registration software to the Currinda platform. All attendees will be required to hold a Currinda profile.

To complete your registration, please select the above button ‘REGISTER NOW’. This will take you to the EMPA Australia Currinda log in page.

It is likely some of you will have created a Currinda profile in the past. If you know your original email and password, please log in using these details. Otherwise, create a new Currinda profile by selecting ‘Begin here’ and fill in the personal details page. If you have simply forgotten your Currinda log in details, the Currinda database will recognise your profile by matching fields such as email address, full name, organisation etc. If a profile is recognised, please confirm if these details are yours. In the case that it is correct, please update your password.

Once you have successfully logged in, please follow the registration prompts. Upon completion, a confirmation email will be sent to you. If you do not receive this email, check your profile email address was entered correctly and that your registration is complete. If you require assistance, please click here to contact HPE. Do not re-register.

Your Currinda profile (email and password) can be used to access your registration at any time to make any necessary changes such as registering add-on’s, making a payment, downloading a current invoice or your certificate of attendance.
