Joint SOMANZ-ADIPS Statement regarding the Annual Scientific Meeting 2020

24-26 July - Grand Chancellor Hotel, Hobart

Cancelled until 2021

We have been closely monitoring advisories and updates from the Department of Health and Human Services in regards to Coronavirus (COVID-19). The safety of our members, speakers, trade partners and all those who participate in our meetings is of the upmost importance. 

On this basis, we have made the decision to cancel the ADIPS/SOMANZ Annual Scientific Meeting planned for the 24-26th July 2020 in Hobart, Tasmania. 

This decision has been made after much consideration by both the boards of SOMANZ and ADIPS. We hope that this decision provides clarity and certainty going forward, and will allow resources to remain focused on clinical care.
