Brisbane’s appeal central to Rheumatology Congress success say organisers MCI Australia

Brisbane is set to welcome almost 2000 Rheumatology practitioners and specialists in April.

The 21st Asia Pacific League of Associations for Rheumatology Congress, co-hosted by the Australian Rheumatology Association, will be held in Brisbane from 8-11 April, and be one of the largest meetings events for the city in 2019.

To be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, the Congress will provide an important global forum for exchange on cutting edge scientific and clinical information, with more than 100 national and international speakers featured over the three-day program, providing world-class research, scientific and medical advances and state-of-the-art industry innovations.

Hayley McLeod, congress manager from MCI Australia, said there has been an overwhelming response by delegates to attend the event once Brisbane was announced as the host city.

“The appeal of Brisbane as a meetings destination is undeniable,” she said. “The city’s liveability, transport network, range of world-class hotels and dining options and the support of State and Local Government is extraordinary.

“Of course, the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre is famed around the world as a leader in meetings facilitation, so these factors, combined with the all-star weather and reputation of the city as one that welcomes visitors with open arms make it unbeatable. And our delegate response is testament to this.”
