We already have a large number of exhibitors and sponsors supporting APS 2016, 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

ASM16 Freshwater-bay-yacht-ClubWe are delighted to announce the APS 2016 Gala Dinner will be held at Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club. Founded in 1896 the Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club enjoys a picturesque location on the banks of the Swan River. Relax and soak up the view whilst enjoying a 3 course meal, plus plenty of time for dancing and catching up with friends and colleagues.

Social Networking Evening

New to the program for 2016, a number of social networking activities have been organised on the Monday evening to give delegates the opportunity to spend time discovering some of the most interesting and unique parts of Perth.

Enjoy a trip to Cottesloe Beach to view the Sculpture by the Sea exhibition and a sunset over the water. Share a pizza and a glass of wine with new friends once the sun goes down across the road at the Cottesloe Beach Hotel.

If you prefer beer, jump on a bus down to the Little Creatures Brewery in Freemantle. Enjoy a tour and tasting experience before settling in for a shared grazing menu.
