In addition to 6 international speakers, and around 50 speakers and chairs from Australasia, we expect over 500 delegates to participate in this conference.

ASCIA annual conferences provide an international standard of continuing professional development and an opportunity to interact with colleagues working in these areas. ASCIA conferences are therefore a highlight of the year for ASCIA members and other health professionals with an interest in allergy and clinical immunology.
