Rydges Camperdown

Located on the ground floor of the hotel the Bligh Room at Rydges is the perfect space to host the opening evening of the APSS Conference. It boasts reverse cycle air conditioning and built in projection screens. It is fitted with a digital signage board to address the conference name and event details. However, most importantly it is conveniently located to all Hotel facilities, making this venue the most popular choice of accommodation for delegates attending the symposium. Discounted rates are available with our special "Corporate ID" available on our Accommodation Page.

Registrations and presentations will take place inside the Bligh Room, however this year we will break out into the restaurant area for drinks and canapes. There will also be access to the outside pool deck if weather permits.
