A message from GPCE Sydney

GPCE Sydney want to express our concern for everyone impacted by coronavirus. The effects, actual and projected, of COVID-19 are becoming evident across all aspects of our lives here in Australia and around the world. 

GPCE acknowledges the vital role of GPs on the front line managing the situation and we would like to assure you that your safety and security remain our number one priority. In the context of the current situation, and following the Australian Government directive, we have made the difficult but appropriate decision to postpone GPCE Sydney, which was planned to be held at Sydney Showground from 22 – 24 May, until new dates of 14-16 August.   

Reed Exhibitions, the organisers of GPCE will continue to monitor the situation closely and as it evolves we will act on the advice from the Australian Government Department of Health and local health departments.

Our number one priority is the health and safety of our exhibitors, attendees, industry partners and staff.  We fully understand and appreciate the level of planning that is required to participate in an event like ours and we will do our utmost to help all our customers, partners and attendees to prepare for the new date.

We would like to thank everyone for the encouragement and support received during this challenging time.  We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.

We ask for your patience during this time, but rest assured we will be in touch very soon with further details.
