Take advantage of our second early bird rate, and find out how to enter the VetEd Talks and poster competition

The early bird gets the worm, or in this case, a $310 discount on registration if you register before April 23. If you’re not an AVA member, there’s never been a better time to join. If you join now, your AVA membership will be extended to June 2020, so you can take advantage of member benefits for an additional three months – for free! The earlier you act, the more you save. Email members@ava.com.au or call 1300 137 309 to join.

Have you got a passion you’d like to share with the profession? Something that makes you leap out of bed in the morning? You’re invited to apply to give a ten-minute VetEd talk in our plenary session on Wednesday May 8.

All AVA members are eligible to apply. Send an expression of interest and brief accompanying video to speakers@ava.com.au by 25 March. Eight speakers will be short-listed and may be eligible for a $500 travel stipend. See the VetEd terms and conditions for more details.

AVA members who have performed research or have a case study to share can enter our poster competition and win up to $600. Entries are open until 15 April. Find out more.  

Network with other delegates at one of the many AVA group dinners, daily happy hour sessions, and the biggest veterinary trade fair in the Southern hemisphere!
