Australia 30Th National Conference March 2022

30th National Conference and Exhibition: 21–23 June 2023 Cairns Convention Centre, Queensland

With international travel to Australia now open, why not take the opportunity to reconnect with your OT peers in tropical north Queensland next June.

OTA’s National Conference was last held virtually in 2021 and we have missed seeing you. Whilst being able to adapt to online learning has created new opportunities, our stakeholders, members, and suppliers are looking forward to face-to-face networking, in person product demonstrations and more.

Why not take a break, enjoy some leisure time either side of the conference and book a few days in Cairns, Palm Cove or Port Douglas? With several new hotels, and many recently completing multi-million-dollar refurbishments, now is the perfect time to plan your trip to Far North Queensland in June 2023. Famous for long days of sunshine and a warm tropical climate, the city of Cairns boasts both a relaxed and lively atmosphere, enhanced by a cosmopolitan feel.

Don’t miss Australia’s major scientific conference for occupational therapists! The program has 3 days jam-packed with concurrent presentations, invited and keynote speakers, hands on demonstrations and interactive workshops as well as a large exhibition showcasing the latest industry suppliers and products.

We look forward to welcoming you the 30th National Conference and Exhibition 2023 to come together to engage, learn and share. To be the first to hear about keynote speakers as they are announced and more, register your interest here.
