This week the Cairns Convention Centre will welcome the 25th Meeting of the International Society for Neurochemistry bringing almost 1,000 delegates to Cairns. It will deliver region wide and interstate benefit as satellite meetings are held in Sydney, Singapore, Cairns Hotels, Palm Cove and Fitzroy Island.
This major international meeting is held jointly with the International Society for Neurochemistry, the Asian Pacific Society for Neurochemistry and the Australasian Society for Neuroscience and will provide a platform for attendees to engage with world-leading researchers in cellular and molecular neuroscience.
Organisers believe the Meeting will be a wonderful way to introduce Australian and New Zealand neuroscience to an international audience, to foster the careers of young neuroscientists and to build research collaborations with colleagues from all over the world.
Eight hundred delegates were expected to attend the meeting however the attraction of Cairns as a business events destination has resulted in nearly 1,000 registrations demonstrating that organisers really can grow their meetings when world-leading science is coupled with an outstanding business events destination.
Ross Steele, General Manager, Cairns Convention Centre said, “The Centre takes great pride in being able to attract these high profile meetings to Cairns that provide benefit not just to our region but have an economic and academic impact Australia wide.”
