Welcome to Congress 2012
Invitation from the Convenor
The 2012 Population Health Congress on the 10th to 12th September at the Adelaide Convention Centre 2012 will be the largest public health event of the year, without a doubt, anticipating an audience of at least 1300 people.
Organised and sponsored jointly by the four leading professional population health organisations in the Asia Pacific region, it will replace their normal annual conferences in 2012 and create an environment for a very large gathering of population health professionals. It will provide the opportunity for working across and within organisations on key population health issues and for unparalleled opportunities for networking
The first joint Congress was held in 2008 and was highly successful, enabling the four organisations to create a larger and more stimulating event than could be achieved separately. It drew 1300 attendees to the three-day event in Brisbane – over 50% more than anticipated. The Steering Committee is developing what we hope will be a stronger and therefore even more appealing program this time and is hoping to attract an even larger audience of public health practitioners and researchers to the event.
On behalf of the presidents of the four organisations, I would highly encourage your government, company or organisation to become a partner in the event through a sponsorship arrangement. We have developed several very attractive packages, described below, and participation will enable you to promote and interact with many of the key population health figures and practitioners in Australia and beyond over the three day period, as well as in the lead up to the event.
We look forward to talking to you about this event and its possibilities it presents for your organisation.
