Registrations Now Open

An Invitation from the Meeting Chairs

Hobart last hosted our Annual Scientific Meeting in 2012, and it’s with great pleasure and excitement that we dare you to come back and again push the boundaries of what’s possible and necessary for a stimulating 21st century medical conference.

We’ve had a long hard look at ourselves and we’ve come to the realisation that the nature of our specialty and the very reason for conferences has changed significantly. So too should the nature of conferences change.

Why do you even go to conferences? Stop and think about it.

Come to Hobart, try something a little bit different and a little bit fancy.

Come to Hobart to experience “The Changing Climate of Emergency Medicine”.

Participate. Engage. Contribute.

Explore the program and register now; follow us on twitter at #ACEM19 for updates and get ready for a great week in Hobart.
