Exhibition Hall

We’ve already got a record number of exhibitors and sponsors supporting APS 2015, without whom this conference would not be possible. The meal breaks during the conference will be a fantastic opportunity to spend time learning about new products on the market.

Gala Dinner

We are delighted to announce the APS 2015 Gala Dinner will be held at Brisbane City Hall. Built between 1920 and 1930, the heritage-listed City Hall is seen as the heart of Brisbane and is one of Queensland’s most significant heritage and cultural icons.

The dinner will be taking place in the Main Auditorium – one of the most photographed and renowned rooms in City Hall whose design was based on the Pantheon in Rome. With over 4000 pipes, the room holds one of the world’s most impressive organs. We are excited to have been able to secure this room for our delegates, we are sure the evening will be a highlight of the conference.
