Invitation to Participate

On behalf of the Conference Organising Committee we invite you to participate as a Sponsor and/or Exhibitor at the 2017 ACIPC International Conference being held at the National Convention Centre, Canberra 20 – 22 November.

The conference is hosted by the Australasian College for Infection Prevention and Control (ACIPC); the peak body for Infection Prevention and Control professionals in the Australasian region.

The conference provides sponsors and exhibitors the opportunity to:

  • Meet face-to-face with those who make and influence the final decision on the purchase of Infection Control and Prevention products and services.
  • Demonstrate new services and programs.
  • Launch new products.
  • Maintain a high profile with your target markets.
  • Network with delegates, industry leaders and health care experts.

We recommend securing your participation early in order to gain longer-term exposure and your preferred stand location in the exhibition area.
