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!

Tony Shields
Congress Chairman
