APSS 2015 Venues
This year the Australian Poultry Science Symposium is back to it's usual venue at the Veterinary Science Conference Centre on Regimental Drive of the University of Sydney, Camperdown Campus. Paper Presentations, Tea Breaks and Lunch will be served here daily. The Post-Graduate Welcome BBQ will also be held directly outside the building on the Round House Lawns.
The Pre-Registration and Sunday evening social gathering will be held in Rowleys Restaurant & Bar area of the Rydges Hotel Camperdown, with canapes and drinks being served.
Due to some unforseen buildings works at the Australian National Maritime Museum, we have changed our symposium dinner back aboard the amazing "Starship Sydney" for a truly wonderful view of the harbour, hopefully we will head to the Museum next year.
We have yet again created a map on Google specifically for APSS 2015, where you can view all of the locations that the conference will take place, numerous options for accommodation, as well as suggested walking routes. Click Here to view.
Veterinary Science Conference Centre
The Veterinary Science Conference Centre (VSCC) is a triple-storey building that contains the Webster Lecture Theatre, where all of our paper presentations will take place; Palfrey Room, where you will be able to register and submit your powerpoint presentations throughout the week; as well as a number of meeting rooms, which can be booked by sponsor companies for breakfast presentations or lunch time meetings.
As mentioned above, the Post Graduate BBQ will be held just outside the building on the Round House Lawns (pictured below) on Monday evening.
Located on the ground floor of the hotel, Rowleys Restaurant & Bar at Rydges is the perfect space to host the opening evening of the APSS Conference. 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 will take place inside the restaurant along with the drinks and canapes. There will also be access to the outside pool deck if weather permits.
The Symposium Dinner is always a fabulous event and 2015 will be no exception. This year we will be again boarding the Starship Sydney, the same boat that the symposium dinner was held on in 2012-13.
The Starship will take us on a 4 hour cruise around Sydney Harbour, with views of the Harbour Bridge, Opera House, Fort Denison and much, much more...
We will enjoy 1 hour of Canapes and live background Jazz on the Lounge and Viewing Decks, followed by Dinner and award presentations on the lower Dining Deck.
