New dates, a message from AGES:

“On behalf of Dr Stephen Lyons, AGES President, Dr Michael Wynn-Williams, Conference Chair and AGES Treasurer, the 2021 ASM Organising Committee and the entire AGES Board, we wish to advise that, due to the various interstate border travel restrictions and lockdowns, the AGES XXXI Annual Scientific Meeting 2021 and all associated workshops will be postponed. The meeting will now be held on 28th – 30th October 2021 at Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, Queensland.

We are greatly disappointed to be in this position, however, with the current uncertainty in South East Queensland and around the country, we believe that this is the best option to move forward.

If you have already registered the AGES team will be working to transfer your existing registration details and accommodation bookings to the new dates and will send through updated confirmations over the next couple of weeks once this has been completed.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact a team member at ages@yrd.com.au

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we work through the necessary arrangements. As always, your support of AGES is greatly appreciated and we look forward to seeing you on the Gold Coast in September.”

Welcome Letter

COVID-19 has changed much of our world, and we acknowledge the challenges many of our members will have experienced since our Sydney AGES ASM in March 2020.   

Whilst the current Covid-19 and world financial crisis is difficult for us, our families, and our patients, it does provide us with an opportunity to reflect and review the way we practice medicine, perform surgery, engage as an organisation, collaborate at conferences, and contribute to our world.  

With this in mind, we are delighted to invite you to the 2021 AGES ASM, ‘Leading the new Paradigm’. This will be an AGES ASM with a difference! 

The 2021 AGES ASM will offer the best of previous ASMs including live surgery, panel discussions, and international guest speakers from around the world. For the first time at AGES, the Simulation Teaching Advisory Group (STAG) will run live surgical simulations, and we will showcase members of our community who are leading change within Australia and New Zealand on sustainability, wellbeing, and innovation. The 2021 AGES ASM will also host a new session featuring surgical videos submitted by AGES members and trainees, as well as provide opportunities for plenty of hands-on industry-supported surgical upskilling.   

Our organizing committee is excited to bring you this ASM program, aiming to equip us all for ‘leading the new paradigm’.  Please join us for a fabulous 3 days of learning and fun at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, Queensland in 2021.
