Participating Organisations

While the Australian Medical Forum Program is completely free from the influence of any sponsors, in order to ensure we provide access for the participants to new products & services, we provide the opportunity for companies to have booths during the conference and give a short presentation titled “Symposium” to those participants that are interested. This session is not a part of the formal program and doesn’t count towards the CPD points. Therefore, it is optional whether the participants wish to participate or not. We give careful consideration to the types of products & services to ensure that the booths & symposia would be of interest to the participants in the conference.
