The Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) is the annual conference run by the Australian and New Zealand Society of Occupational Medicine (ANZSOM) to promote and facilitate ongoing learning for Occupational Medicine professionals.
The first ASM Conference was held in 1973.
ASM2021 was postponed from the original November 2021 dates to be held from Sunday 20 March to Wednesday 23 March 2022.
With the surge of the Delta variant leading to lockdowns across the country, coupled with the Stamford joining Queensland Government’s hotel quarantine program, the ASM Organising Committee and ANZSOM General Council decided to postpone the 2021 ASM to March of 2022 giving everyone enough time to regain control of the situation and peace of mind. The conference will now run from Sunday 20 - Wednesday 23 March 2022 at the Victoria Park Function Venue, with the theme and the program to remain as is.
Anyone that already registered for the November meeting has had their registration transferred or offered a full refund if unable to make the new dates. If you feel like you have missed out on any of the communications or need more details, please contact the secretariat.
The 2022 ASM Conference is a hybrid event with all technical program sessions being broadcast live from Brisbane via Zoom webinar. If you are unable to attend in person you can register as a virtual delegate to join online.
If you cannot make it to the live event - either in person or online - recordings of the sessions will be made available to all delegates for up 3 months after the conference end, giving you plenty of time to catch up on what you missed or refresh your memory of a particular presentation.
Full registration - covers the complete, in-person conference. All technical sessions, site-visits and workshops (excluding the CPR update) are included along with morning and afternoon tea and lunch each day. Complimentary access to the History of Occupational Medicine Seminar and the welcome cocktail reception are also included. You can add your conference dinner to your registration or purchase tickets for this separately.
Day registration - available for each of the three days of technical program of the conference. Day registration does not include social functions – these can be booked separately.
Virtual Registration - live-streamed access to all sessions across the three days, except for CPR and Site Visits. Delegates can also access recordings post-event. Virtual registration is not available for individual days. (see more details below)
CPR update - a staple of the ASM, this is the perfect opportunity to ensure your CPR certification is up to date.
Additional tickets - available for guests to attend the welcome reception and for the conference dinner.
Following on from the highly successful 2020 Virtual conference and in response to an ever-changing world, ANZSOM’s 2022 Annual Scientific meeting will be offered as a hybrid event giving delegates the choice of attending in person or virtually from wherever they find themselves.
While we are incredibly excited to see you all in-person in Brisbane in November, the global situation will affect how this event is run. Social-distancing, registration limits, travel restrictions, even potential lock-downs, are all part the changed and changing landscape of making plans. But challenges are simply hidden opportunities and ANZSOM is taking this opportunity to give delegates unprecedented access to this year’s ASM.
State-of-the-art technology and skilled technicians come together to transport our expert presentations, live from Brisbane, direct to you. Virtual registration will allow delegates from around the country and across the world to participate in session they may not be able to get to in person.
A virtual registration will give you:
Full access to all 3 days of the technical program – live and interactive sessions will be broadcast via our online conference portal where you’ll be able to chat to your fellow virtual delegates and join in the live discussion.
An EXCLUSIVE virtual site visit – giving you exclusive access to areas that you wouldn't be able to see in person, virtual site visits are a great way to learn from experience Occupational Medicine professionals about what issues can arise in unique workplaces.
A virtual exhibition experience – visit our sponsor and exhibitor’s virtual exhibition pages for your chance to enter in the draw for prizes and giveaways, including the ASM exhibition passport!
On-demand access to recordings & learning materials – double-booked with a meeting or mother-in-law interrupts your day off? No worries! As all technical sessions will be recorded for you to access for 3 months.
If you have purchased a Day or Virtual Registration and would now like to attend the whole of the conference in person, just let us know and we will update your registration and just charge you the difference.
If you would like to change from a Full Registration to a Day or Virtual Registration or swap a Day Registration for the Virtual access, an administration fee of $100 will apply with the remainder of the difference refunded to you directly.
See below for options in case of changes necessitated by COVID.
In the case of Queensland closing their border to all other states, the conference will still go ahead and all Full Registration for people unable to make it in person will be automatically converted to Virtual Registrations. A refund of the difference (with no administration fee) will be given. You will also be given the option for a full refund if you are unable to join in the virtual broadcast.
The same options will be offered in the case of border closures between your specific state with Queensland.
Should there be a full, nation-wide lock-down due to COVID, the ASM will be offered as a virtual event with all Full Registration automatically converted to Virtual Registrations. A refund of the difference (with no administration fee) will be given. You will also be given the option for a full refund if you are unable to join in the virtual broadcast.
Should we be unable to broadcast a virtual event, full refunds or credit to the ASM2023 will be given.
