ASC Aotearoa New Zealand hub
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, numbers will be restricted at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre in May during the RACS ASC 2021. As a result, the ASC will be live-streamed and on-demand to all those unable to travel and attend, and RACS offices will be hosting 'hubs' across Australia and New Zealand.
The Aotearoa New Zealand hub will be located at The Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, one of Wellington’s premium event venues, on the attractive waterfront and within easy walking distance of many of the Capital’s best accommodation, entertainment and dining amenities.
E ngā rata, e ngā iwi, e ngā tauiwi o te motu, tenā tātou katoa.
Nau mai, haere mai ki Tāhuna Queenstown for the RACS New Zealand Annual Surgeons Meeting - Surgery 2021: Reflecting on Practice, on Thursday 2 and Friday 3 September.
The countdown has begun and an exciting programme is being developed, featuring a range of inspiring speakers from both Aotearoa / New Zealand and overseas. The organising committee is delighted to confirm that Professor Peter Brennan, MD, PhD, FRCS Consultant Maxillofacial Surgeon and internationally renowned expert in human factors and patient safety will be a keynote speaker. Whether he will be with us live in Queenstown or be attending via Zoom, is still to be determined. Fingers crossed for the former.
We strongly recommend you either travel to Queenstown ahead of Surgery 2021, or stay on for the weekend and experience the wonders and delights of New Zealand’s top adventure and skiing region.
More details, including a provisional programme and accommodation deals, will be available in due course so do keep checking this page. In the meantime, block out your calendar and book your flights now.
