We are chuffed to announce that the AMT Annual Conference will be held on October 12, 13 and 14 at the Rydges Sydney Central. The venue is located within five minutes easy walking from Central Railway Station in Sydney. That’s ten minutes by rail from the airport. We’ve negotiated a special room rate for conference delegates but there’s loads of accommodation options within easy reach of the venue to suit all budgets.
We are working in earnest to finalise the program. This year, you’ll be able to choose whether you’d like to attend for any single day, two days or all three days of the shindig. There will be a cosy welcome event on the evening of Friday 12th and a cocktail function on Saturday evening (13th October). We’re closing the entire event on Sunday afternoon with a mystery session that we reckon you’re going to love.
So far we have two confirmed breakout presenters. We’re really excited to be hosting guest international presenter, Robert Libbey, who will also be taking his workshops on a road tour around the country during October 2018. We are just beginning to work on the details of Robert’s visit, so now would be the right time to check out his website and put in your bid for particular presentations in the comments section!
We are also pleased to be hosting Josephine Key who will present breakout sessions on movement and manual therapy.
We have some exciting prospects on our plenary presenter hit list and look forward to sharing details as sessions are confirmed.
The AMT annual conference is the keynote educational event of the Association and it’s actually fun! It’s your chance to learn new stuff, earn CEUs, catch up with old mates, connect with peers and, god forbid, let your hair down a bit. It’s also tax deductible …
We really hope we’ll see you in mid-October!
