Asia Oceania Otorhinolaryngological Head and Neck Surgery Congress (AO ORL-HNS) 2023, the major ear, nose and throat scientific event in Asia-Oceania, is returning to Australia for the first time in 40 years. The five day conference will take place at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC) in March 2023 and is expected to attract some 1,500 clinicians and specialist surgeons working with the ear, nose, throat, head and neck.
The main driver of the successful bid for the 15th Asia Oceania ORL–HNS Congress is world leading ear nose and throat surgeon, Associate Professor Bernard Lyons worked with Professor Ben Panizza and Dr. Phil Fisher, President of The Australian Society of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery and the team at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre in collaboration with Tourism & Events Queensland and Brisbane Marketing to secure the prestigious surgical conference for Brisbane.
“This meeting is potentially the largest meeting to be held in the field of otolaryngology head and neck surgery in Australia. It is a unique opportunity for Australia to interact on a scientific basis with our neighbouring countries in the Asia Oceania region,” Associate Professor Lyons said.
