The Pharmacy Guild of Australia, Queensland Branch, has been successful in securing grant support through Austrade for exhibitors and attendees to the Australian Pharmacy Professional Conference (APP2021).
The grant is part of a $50 million Business Events Grants program launched by the federal government to support the post-Covid economic recovery of the business events sector.
In order to be eligible for the funding, delegates and exhibitors must spend a minimum of $20,000 to get as much as 50% returned to them.
Kos Sclavos, APP Convenor and former Guild National President, comments that “as the funding comes from a national pool and it’s a first in, best-dressed scenario, we encourage anyone interested in accessing this grant to do so now so they don’t miss out”.
Mr Sclavos says that whilst there are still trade exhibition stands available for the conference, they are selling fast.
APP2021 will be run as a Covid Safe Event. The Pharmacy Guild is in the process of finalising its Covid Safe Event Plan, which will be submitted to the Queensland Government Public Health Unit for approval.
APP will take place at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre on 20-23 May 2021.
