Event Overview
Welcome message:
It is with great pleasure that I invite members of the association, their families, colleagues and friends to the 2016 APOA Congress in beautiful Melbourne, Australia on 29th March to 1st April 2016. Melbourne in late March will not only offer the perfect autumn weather, there will be numerous other exciting social events to entertain you and your families around the time of the Congress.

The 2016 Congress will be an enticing combination of academic feast together with excellent social activities for all attendees. The Congress will be held at the Melbourne Convention Centre, a superb venue that has received awards for environmental awareness. There will be significant involvement of all APOA Specialty sections at the Congress alongside with counter-parts from the Australian and New Zealand Orthopaedic Associations and Specialty Societies

There will be Symposia, Instructional Course Lectures, surgical demonstrations and Best paper awards in every Specialty sections. The winners of the Best paper awards will be given free registration at the 2018 APOA Congress in Antalya, Turkey. There are 10 APOA Young Ambassadors’ scholarships open to all members of APOA. The Melbourne Congress will also honour all APOA Past Presidents with the inaugural Past Presidents’ medals and all Life Fellows with new APOA Life Fellow’s certificates.


There will be significant Medical and non- Medical Industries and Trades presence at the 2016 Congress. Their participations at the Melbourne Congress will expose their companies to over half the world’s population and Orthopaedic surgeons from around the world in addition to the 20 member countries / chapters of APOA.


Melbourne is also a great gateway to many pre and post conference tours within the state of Victoria and beyond.


I am looking forward to welcoming you and your family at the 2016 APOA Congress – you will be glad that you came and take home memories of the unique local cuisine, unspoiled Australian landscape, and most of all the quintessential Australian hospitality and friendship
