Conference Celebration Event

Join us under the "APC-Sea" for a magical evening of celebration! Don't miss this opportunity to reconnect with friends and colleagues. Following on from the success of our Cairns event we are once again opting for a stand-up style event, we aim to foster a dynamic and vibrant atmosphere where you can freely move around, engage in meaningful conversations, and exchange ideas with fellow attendees. This year our event is being held at the Melbourne Aquarium so on top of excellent food and beverage you also get the opportunity to self-tour the aquarium without the general public! We look forward to seeing you at the conference celebration event, where new opportunities, inspiring conversations, and unforgettable moments await!

Register early as this event is not to be missed!
