2021 is a big year for the AVA. It is our Centennial year, and in celebration of 100 years of serving the veterinary profession, the AVA is holding a series of face-to-face Centennial Conferences in each state and territory.

The Victorian Centenary Series Conference will be held on Monday 22 November to Wednesday 24 November at the Pullman Melbourne.


Located near St Kilda and the Chapel Street precincts, the Pullman & Mercure Melbourne Albert Park is an upscale hotel overlooking picturesque Albert Park Lake, home to the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix. From here, it’s just moments to the top tourist attractions and activities in Melbourne.

Victoria's capital, Melbourne, sits on the banks of the Yarra River and around the shores of Port Phillip Bay. Melbourne boasts a packed program of festivals and events, Australia's best and most stylish shopping, has a lively passion for eating and drinking, and supports a flourishing arts scene. More info about tourism in Victoria and surrounds.

Please note that onsite booking will not be available.

In the highly unlikely event that we must cancel this year's event due to Government regulations and health directives preventing us from going ahead, we will issue you with a full refund of your registration.

In the event that Government regulations and health directives prevent you from attending due to a lock down here, or border closures just prior to, or during conference week, again we will issue you with a full refund of your registration. Latest announcements will also be made available via the AVA website.
