As Chair of the 2018 Conference Committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to the 36th Annual Conference and Exhibition of the Australian Institute of Occupational Hygienists. I am excited to announce that this event will be held in Melbourne from 1-5 December, 2018 at the Crown Conference Centre, Southbank.
Our logo and theme for the 2018 Conference was chosen to represent what unite us as hygienists- our issues. Notwithstanding the traditional hazards Occupational Hygienists deal with every day, the profession is also being challenged by a changing workplace base, new technologies and a more holistic approach to workers’ health. We hope the Conference will empower the profession in meeting the challenges of today but also those of the future, identify and provide opportunities to accommodate trending workplace issues and educate us on improved methods of keeping workers healthy.
The Crown Conference Centre is a purpose built, modern conference facility on the banks of the Yarra with plenty of accommodation options in and around the Centre. Melbourne is Arts, Culture and Food, so come and enjoy not only one season, but perhaps all four in one day! Dress in black like our logo and enjoy the city: Melbourne was voted World’s most liveable city in 2017- a record 7th time in a row in the top spot.
Our Conference will continue to provide opportunities for professional development on a wide range of traditional and trending occupation hygiene topics through:
• Continuing Education Sessions
• Presentations from International and National Speakers
• Exhibitors showcasing products and services
And not forgetting the opportunities for networking and connecting with peers through various Social Events.
On behalf of the 2018 Conference Committee, I ask that you consider being part of the success of this Conference by submitting a presentation, showcasing your outstanding products and services or just by indulging us with your attendance and participation at the event.
So please come to Melbourne and join us at the Crown Conference Centre for another dynamic and successful AIOH Conference!
