The Pharmacy Guild of Australia has reminded potential attendees of the deadline approaching for discounted tickets to attend APP2021
The Guild is the organiser of the Australian Pharmacy Professional Conference and Trade Exhibition (APP), to be held from 20-23 May on the Gold Coast.
APP Chairman, Kos Sclavos, encouraged anyone wanting to attend this year’s event to register before 8 February as they would save up to $200.
Mr Sclavos said the super early bird deadline was timely, given that COVID-19 restrictions on travelling to Queensland for parts of NSW and Victoria have now been lifted.
“With travel restrictions from Sydney in particular easing, now is the time to register and save up to 20% on your registration fee,” Mr Sclavos said.
“We have also recently released the education program, meaning that potential attendees can view the fantastic line up of speakers and topics on offer at this year’s event before registering.
“We’re very excited to be hearing from high-profile speakers such as leading retail expert Gary Mortimer, who will be speaking on consumer behaviour in a post-COVID world, CommBank Chief Economist Craig James, and past Australian Olympians, Anna Meares OAM and Steven Bradbury OAM.”
Mr Sclavos also highlighted that the event had a comprehensive COVID Safe Event Plan in place, which was developed to keep attendees safe.
“The health and safety of all our attendees is our number one priority,” said Mr Sclavos.
“We are continually keeping abreast of all state and territory border restrictions and have contingencies in place to deal with any circumstances that may arise. As 2020 demonstrated, the Pharmacy Guild is nimble at adapting to changing conditions.”
Mr Sclavos also reminded potential delegates and exhibitors that the Pharmacy Guild has secured access to a $50M Business Events Grants program launched by the Federal Government to support the post-COVID economic recovery of the business events sector. To be eligible for the funding, delegates and exhibitors must spend a minimum of $20K to get as much as 50% returned to them.
