APSS 2017 Venues
WE ARE MOVING!!!
We are excited to announce that APSS 2017 will be held at Sheraton on the Park, Sydney, right in the heart of the Sydney CBD. This area gives delegates a much wider variety of accommodation options, including the opportunity to stay right where the conference is taking place. The new venue gives us bigger, better quality facilities, which will enable us to continue to grow the symposium in year to come.
Paper Presentations & Tea Breaks will be delivered in the Grand Ballroom and surrounds on Level 2 each day. The included lunch will be a full buffet in Sheraton's award winning Feast Restaurant on Level 1, with food that will cater to everyone's desires.
The Post-Graduate and Poster Session Canapes will be held as usual on the first evening of the conference, and will the hosted in the Hyde Park Room on Level 2, just opposite the Grand Ballroom. This is also the room where you will sign-in to the conference on the first day.
Sunday nights Pre-Registration evening will be a little more low-key this year. Informal drinks with Peter Groves and the Poultry Research Foundation team will be held at the Conservatory Bar on Level 1. We will limit sign-ins to 100 people and the first 50 will be offered a complimentary drink on arrival.
The Symposium Dinner will be held next door to the Sheraton, at Doltone House, Hyde Park. We will start off the evening with canapes and pre-dinner drinks, with some light entertainment. Dinner will be hosted in the luxurious Hyde Park Ballroom, with floor-to-ceiling windows gazing out across Hyde Park and the city lights. Following dinner and other formalities, there will be time left over to get your dance on if you please, with an in house DJ ready to help us rock the night away.
