Congress of Biomechanics Enjoyed Brisbane Hospitality

The Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre  hosted the congress for the International Society of Biomechanics – IBS 2017 from 23 – 27 July. More than 1,200 of the world’s foremost scientists from over 50 countries representing all aspects of the discipline came to the Centre for the five day Congress.

The city’s three leading universities representing an intense hub of biomechanics activity in collaboration with Team Brisbane, including Tourism & Events Queensland, Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre and Brisbane Marketing, were the prime reason for conference organisers choosing Brisbane.

Professor Andrew Cresswell, President of the International Society of Biomechanics and Head of School, School of Human Movement and Nutrition Sciences, The University of Queensland, said the idea for the Brisbane conference started more than seven years ago ensured the biomechanics community would have the opportunity to connect and collaborate with colleagues in the Asia Pacific Region.
