Virtual VS In-Person Registration

The 2022 conference is going to be different, than the past two years. It’s finally possible to come together and we are excited to do that in Melbourne. There’s a big party planned and back-to-back live presentations with plenty of breaks and opportunities to catch up and network.

In-person full registration includes conference program over 2 days, all catering, and the conference party, as well as access to the Virtual Gallery! In-person full conference registration qualifies you for 12 CPD hours. Attendance at the PDS qualifies you for 6 CPD hours.

Not everyone can make it, of course, so we’re also going to make a Virtual Gallery registration available.

Virtual Gallery Registration will include access to 12 pre-recorded presentations that will be selected by the Scientific Chair, across a board range of topics. These presentations will be in gallery format, and can be viewed at any time. Please note no live or interactive components are included.

Virtual Gallery registration qualifies you for 6 CPD Hours. Whilst there is a Virtual Gallery option available, we do hope that you are able to join us in-person in Melbourne and appreciate your support in getting back to a live AMTA conference!
