About the ASAV Conference
It is with great pleasure and excitement to be able to welcome you to our 47th annual ASAV Conference in Darwin, from the 24 - 28 July 2022. The program that we have prepared is on Emergency Medicine and Surgery, and we will be joined by a star studded cast of speakers, including Drs Chris Tan, Terry King, Rob Webster and Ellie Leister. In addition, as the first annual conference in three years, we have made an extra effort to make this conference an unforgettable experience.
By teaming up with the Australian Veterinary Dental Society (AVDS), The Unsual Pet and Avian Veterinarians (UPAV) and the Australian Veterinary Behaviour Interest Group (AVBIG), this multi-stream conference will be the largest conference we have hosted since FASAVA in 2017, and promises to be a truly holistic learning experience for the general practitioner. But the ASAV conference is also about community, collegiality and connection. As we have done in previous ASAV conferences, we are putting up a great schedule of social events, like the welcome dinner, industry networking drinks, happy hour, the recent graduate dinner and our biggest night, the annual gala dinner and awards night. There will be ample opportunities to let your hair down and reconnect with old friends and colleagues, as well as make new friends, and to enjoy an experience that we have greatly missed for the last three years.
We could not have chosen a better venue to convene than Darwin. Get ready for sunny days, warm temperatures, and unique experiences that can only be found in the Top End; why not make a trip of it while you are here.
This is an event not to be missed. Mark the dates on the calendar, register now for the ASAV conference in July and make sure you don’t pack away the summer clothes just yet! Look forward to seeing you there.
