24th PSANZ Annual Congress – April 5-8, 2020

Greetings from the Perinatal Society of Australia and New Zealand!

Sydney, Australia is hosting the 24th PSANZ Annual Congress, "Bridging Gaps in Perinatal Care" and we would love for you to join us!

PSANZ is a unique multidisciplinary society of Australia and New Zealand dedicated to improving health and longterm outcomes for mothers and babies. We aim to do this by bringing together all disciplines involved in perinatal care and to encourage and promote research that focuses on pregnancy, birth and the newborn period and the implications for future health. The Society also has a key role in advocacy, policy and promoting high quality, safe and innovative practice.

Our annual congress aims to broaden perspectives of perinatology; stimulate research activity; present scientifically rigorous and valid new information and provide a forum to debate this new information and other ideas. It is the perfect time to network and meet with others in your field and across disciplines. PSANZ 2020 will provide you with all of this and more.

Each day of our three-day meeting will feature our invited speakers from around the world and across Australasia. There will be leaders in their fields presenting cutting edge research and providing expert guidance to improve our current day practice. Our programme format will include transdisciplinary themed plenary sessions, breakfast sessions, interactive workshops, research symposia...informal poster viewing events with plenty of time for networking and social opportunities; time to catch up with old friends or enjoy the opportunity to meet new ones.

Our congress venue is the International Convention Centre (ICC) at Darling Harbour. The ICC Sydney is Australia's first fully-integrated convention, exhibition and entertainment centre featuring a striking contemporary design, leading technology and world-class meeting and exhibition spaces. It is surrounded by hotels, restaurants and bars. The area offers a wide range of activities, tours and attractions. Do take time to enjoy all that Darling Harbour and Sydney has to offer.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Lynn Sinclair, Chair PSANZ 2020, President, Perinatal Society of Australia & New Zealand (PSANZ)
