Further details

The AVA Conference 2024 is at the Melbourne Convention Centre, 27 May – 31 May.   The Melbourne Convention Centre is on the land of the traditional owners of Narrm, the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people of the Kulin. 

The conference theme is ‘Living Well’ which reflects the aims for our patients and ourselves when we practice veterinary science and medicine. The conference will present a range of topics focused on improving the quality of life for animals with chronic conditions and enhancing veterinary practice to help veterinary professionals achieve longevity and satisfaction in their careers and life.

One of the largest gatherings of veterinary professionals in Australia, the AVA Annual Conference brings together over 750 veterinarians from every sector of our profession. Whether you work with smallies, largies, in public health, academia, referral practice, conservation, whether you delve into dentistry, veterinary business or acupuncture, the scientific program offers something for everyone. World class international and local speakers share the latest knowledge in an engaging format. 

You control your CPD by choosing from sessions over 7 concurrent streams. You can deepen your knowledge in an area of interest, broaden your knowledge by exploring a new area, or both. 

It’s Australia’s premier veterinary networking conference, with a social program providing unrivalled opportunities to catch up with colleagues you know, establish new contacts and explore opportunities. From alumni cocktails and group dinners to the fabulous gala dinner and awards night, we’ve got you covered. 

With over 100 exhibitors, the trade exhibition provides the perfect opportunity to continue networking, find out what’s new and take advantage of exclusive conference offers.
