Wellness centre and exhibition

Let us help you look after yourself at the Australian Veterinary Association Wellness Centre, behind the AVA stand. All delegates are invited to participate in an annual health check and wellness survey. Take stock of your health with a free health check on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10am.

Forget your surroundings for ten blissful minutes with a restorative complimentary massage, or enjoy other mindfulness activities before heading back to lectures, from 12.30pm on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Dr John Aspley Davis will run an artists table at the stand, for those who like to be creative, while Dr Michael Paton will discuss how music helps mental health and perform on his guitar during some of the breaks.

What better way to relax than a bit of retail therapy? With over 100 exhibitors showcasing the latest technology and newest products on the market, it’s the ideal opportunity to collect samples, ask those burning questions, get that quote, and take advantage of exclusive conference discounts. Make the most of extended lunch breaks and daily happy hours to enter the passport competition.

For those who cannot make it to the scientific sessions, exhibition-only registration ensures you won’t miss out.
