JULY 9 – 13, Brisbane, Australia

The Congress will take place at the Brisbane Convention Centre, a world-class, purpose-built venue, located on the banks of the Brisbane River.

Following on from the inaugural hybrid Congress in Montreal in July, ISPGR is taking on board attendee feedback to trial a second hybrid event. This will allow people to present and attend all sessions either in-person in Brisbane, or virtually.

There’s a lot happening in Brisbane now. The city is an emerging economic powerhouse in the Asia Pacific region, with massive levels of investment giving rise to new developments including vibrant venues and hotels ranging from 3.5 to 6-star.

Brisbane is home to the “world’s best convention centre”, a flourishing dining and bar scene, and a year-round calendar of major events and cultural attractions drawing record numbers of business and leisure visitors. Recognised as Australia’s “most sustainable city”, Brisbane is clean, green and easily walkable. The city is becoming even more accessible for travellers, with new air routes opening up and construction underway on a $1.3 billion parallel runway that will see Brisbane Airport operate at the same capacity as Singapore and Hong Kong by 2020. As a magnet for talent and skills, Brisbane is home to world-renowned research centres and offers access to thought-leaders across key growth industries.
