AVA Centenary Conference Series


2021 marks the AVA’s 100 years of representing our veterinary profession in Australia, and we’re inviting the veterinary community to join a very special AVA Centenary Conference Series to celebrate a century of science, community and collegiality. Every year, the AVA Annual Conference is hosted by a different city around the country. In 2021, the special AVA Centenary Conference Series will instead be brought to every state and territory. Join us in your state or territory as we bring the AVA Centenary Conference Series to you, together with a world-class program and guests from across the globe who will share all the latest in veterinary science and discuss the topics that are of most interest to you. You’ll discover exciting innovations that are transforming veterinary care, learn how to adapt and innovate to meet future business demands and ensure your skills and knowledge are up-to-date to cope with the changing veterinary landscape. Excited to catch up with your fellow veterinary community following 2020? This Conference Series will feature a huge social program including Group dinners, happy hours, university alumni events, meet and greet nights and of course the highly anticipated Gala Dinner! You can also expect an extensive trade show exhibition with the latest products, services and technology from our conference partners who will be available to answer all your questions and inform you on what’s out there. Sponsorship and Exhibition bookings are now open. Delegate registrations opening soon.
