The Pharmacy Guild of Australia released its program for the Australian Pharmacy Professional Conference and Trade Exhibition (APP2021) and announced super early bird registration ending soon.
Kos Sclavos AM, APP Convenor and former Guild National President, says this year’s program boasted some not-to-be-missed speakers.
“We’ve got some fantastic speakers this year including Australia’s leading retail expert, Gary Mortimer, who will be speaking on consumer behaviour in a post-Covid world and Craig James, Chief Economist at CommBank, who will be speaking on the new Australian economy,” says Mr Sclavos.
“We will also have the opportunity to hear from past Australian Olympians Anna Meares OAM and Steven Bradbury OAM. I am particularly interested in attending sessions which focus on the practical learnings out of Covid how to survive and thrive in a post-Covid environment,” he adds.
Mr Sclavos also reminded community pharmacists, pharmacy staff and other industry players that super early bird registration closes on 8 February.
“The countdown is on to APP2021 in May! We’ve seen a great uptake with many attendees already registered,” says Mr Sclavos.
“Super early bird registration, which sees attendees saving over 20% off their full registration.”
Mr Sclavos assures attendees that a robust Covid Safe Event Plan is in place.
“APP2021 has a comprehensive Covid Safe Event Plan developed to keep attendees safe. Attendee safety is our number one priority, and this detailed plan considers several contingency scenarios that may occur in this ever-changing world,” says Mr Sclavos.
“We are continually keeping abreast of all state and territory border restrictions and have contingencies in place to deal with any circumstances that may arise. As 2020 demonstrated, the Guild is nimble at adapting to changing conditions.”
