Invitation to APSAD Brisbane 2020 Conference

Sofitel Brisbane Central | Sunday 15 – Wednesday 18 November 2020

On behalf of the Australasian Professional Society on Alcohol and other Drugs (APSAD), we are excited to invite you to the River City of Brisbane for the 2020 APSAD Conference. Come and enjoy our idyllic subtropical weather, and explore our city and inner-city precincts, and river-side dining, outdoor activities, lush parklands, and our inner-city “beach” at South Bank.

The 2020 conference program will showcase high quality and state of the art scientific research into alcohol and other drug treatment, prevention, policy and workforce development, with a specific focus on the translation of evidence-based research into practice. We will also be providing opportunities for front line workers to share their insights to inspire the next generation of clinically-relevant research.

The conference is being held at the Sofitel Brisbane from Sunday 15 – Wednesday 18 November 2020, located in the Brisbane CBD. APSAD acknowledges the Turrbal and Yugara people, as the traditional owners of the lands we will meet, and pay respect to their Elders, lores, customs and creation spirits. We recognise that these lands have always been places of teaching, research and learning.

On behalf of the APSAD Council, Organising Committee and the Sc ientific Advisory Committee we hope you are able to join us in Brisbane, Queensland for the 2020 APSAD Scientific Alcohol and Drug Conference.

We look forward to seeing you there.
