7th Annual ABSANZ Biosafety & Biocontainment Conference Program

7th Annual ABSANZ Biosafety & Biocontainment Conference
Early bird registration closes 1 September

Have you checked out the latest line up for our 7th Annual ABSANZ Biosafety and Biocontainment Conference program? The program is jam packed with high quality presenters discussing relevant and current issues aimed at biosafety, biocontainment and biosecurity specialists.

ABSANZ is listening to you!  Our delegate and member survey identified that you wanted more talks on larger animals, so this year we have two symposium sessions that relate to non microscopic organisms.  These sessions range from bees to penguins. 

In Symposium 2 we will hear about the workings of the Mickleham Post Entry Quarantine Facility in Victoria which has now been open for two years and which some of you will have toured as part of last year’s conference.  The session will also examine the design complexities of building a containment facility that must be open to the public but also meet containment requirements for imported penguins. 

Our session on bees in Symposium 5 will emphasise the biosecurity issues faced by both Australia and New Zealand in protecting these important insects from diseases that are spreading throughout the world. Check out our program for more details!

We are on track to deliver the most informative and relevant ABSANZ conference to date so do take advantage of the earlybird special and secure your spot now - click here to register online

Sponsorship and exhibition opportunities are selling fast - we thank those companies that have already confirmed their participation -
