The 30th ASCIA Annual Conference was a great success, with more than 600 registrations and an acclaimed program. Congratulations and thank you to Prof Michaela Lucas and the organising committee (Dr Chris Bundell, Rachael Dunn, A/Prof Mina John, A/Prof Richard Loh, Prof Dominic Mallon, Dr Tracy Markus, Dr Patricia Martinez, Dr Andrew McLean-Tooke, Valerie Noble, Dr Richard Nolan, Ingrid Roche, Sandra Vale). 
Thank you to the ASCIA staff led by Jill Smith (Rikki Dunstall, Michelle Haskard, Nadene Dorling) and ICMSA staff led by Rebecca Smith, who all worked tirelessly behind the scenes on the event logistics. Whilst ASCIA Annual Conferences are challenging to organise, they are also exciting events which provide an international standard of education and networking opportunities that ASCIA members can look forward to each year.

The ASCIA 2019 Conference was held in conjunction with the highly successful sixth annual CFAR Symposium, the eighth Australian and New Zealand Anaesthetic Allergy Group (ANZAAG) Symposium and the third ASCIA-DAA CAL (Centre for Advanced Learning) Food Allergy and Intolerance Course for Dietitians.
