ASO2020 Congress Cancellation Notification

It is with deep sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the cancellation of this year’s ASO 2020 Event to be held in Cairns (due to take place 19-23 March).

We know that this will come as an enormous disappointment, not only to the exhibitors, suppliers and industry professionals who were due to attend the event. This is not a decision we have taken lightly and there are two overriding concerns that have caused us to make this decision at this time.

First is the duty of care we have to our delegates in relation to the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Second is the Government announcement on the advice to not hold gatherings of 500 or more people to help stop the spread of the virus.

Whilst only a short time ago we felt optimistic that we could continue based on our low risk within Australia, the recent government announcement has forced us to make a decision to move quickly but strongly in this way forward. We understand you may have a lot of questions in relation to your registration, sponsor or exhibitor funds, accommodation, and flight information. We assure you we will provide this information to you as soon as we can. Likely early next week.

We want to thank you for all of your support throughout the planning process of this event, and for your patience as we work through this very unusual and difficult situation.

On behalf of the President of the Australian Society of Orthodontists I invite you to join us in Cairns for the 27th ASO Congress to be held from 20th to 23rd March 2020.

Our theme for the Congress is “Bringing the Future into Focus” and could there be a better place than Cairns to improve your 2020 vision? Fringed by the Barrier Reef and surrounded by tropical rainforest, Queensland’s warmest welcome is waiting for you and your staff. Our Scientific Committee has developed a fantastic programme featuring a combination of International and local speakers which will be stimulating and informative for delegates and our auxillary staff alike.

To be held at the award winning Cairns Convention Centre, the CBD with its 7000 hotel rooms from budget to 5 star and entertainment precinct is only a short stroll away. Scientific pursuits and social interaction are the cornerstones of ASO Congresses and I am sure that 2020 in Cairns will be no exception!

Mark your diaries now – this is one meeting not to be missed!
