Join us for the 49th ASAV annual conference from Monday 12 August to Thursday 15 August 2024, at the stunning Novotel Sunshine Coast Resort, QLD. But that's not all - in 2024, we're teaming up with the Veterinary Business Group! 

The 4-day extravaganza is now the most comprehensive small animal conference offered by the AVA and is full of great scientific information focusing on Cardiorespiratory diseases, as well as practice management and business topics. It also brings together two of the largest group memberships within the AVA, and therefore there will be ample opportunities to create new connections as well as reunite previous ones. 

 As well as the lectures and scientific information at our conference, we will have a great feature of social events, like the recent graduate dinner as well as the combined ASAV and VBG awards gala dinner. With the latter event, we celebrate the champions of our profession and recognise the contributions of our colleagues. 

With over 350 veterinary professionals expected to gather under one roof, this event promises unparalleled networking opportunities. Don't miss our standout exhibition will only limited stands remaining! 

Mark your calendars now for a conference that promises education, camaraderie, and fun! This is your chance to learn, connect, and make lasting memories. 

We can't wait to welcome you to the 49th ASAV Conference and Veterinary Business Group collaboration - where beats, breaths, and business converge!
