Reduced Australian Support – ANZAC Day, 25 April 2017

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017


Each year on the 25th of April, Australia takes a day off to remember soldiers who have died in conflict.

This day – which we call ANZAC Day –  is a national holiday and as such, our Australian support and sales team will not be in the office on 25 April. Support in our US office will be operating as per usual.

ANZAC Day is similar to Veteran’s Day in the US or Remembrance Day in the UK. There is a great Wikipedia article if you’d like to know more about the history and traditions of the day.

If you have an urgent inquiry please contact our US support team via
