2018 AVA Annual Conference - 13-18 May - Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre

The AVA Annual Conference is the largest veterinary conference in the region. Rotating around Australia’s capital cities it attracts an average 1,100 veterinary professionals including over 920 paid delegates on any given day.

The AVA Annual Conference puts you in touch with the veterinary professionals and decision makers. We offer an array of sponsorship, exhibition and promotional opportunities at various levels and will work with you to create a package that fits your needs and budget.

The scientific committee is working on a program that will offer a stellar line-up of local and international speakers, eight concurrent streams and 200 scientific sessions. There will be specialist workshops and field trips and a social program bursting at the seams. You will have the opportunity to mingle with your customers in a relaxed atmosphere at the welcome reception and exhibition opening, happy hours and the gala dinner.

The exhibition is always a sell out and is the largest veterinary exhibition in the country with 133 stands available.

Sponsorship and exhibition opportunities are open now and delegate registrations open in February 2017. 

Our delegates tell us they are looking for the newest products and innovations from the companies that are contributing to the advancement of the profession. They are engaged and eager to learn about your products and services.

Our sponsors and exhibitors tell us it is the one conference they can’t afford to miss.

Hope to see you in Brisbane in 2018!
