Thousands of attendees were able to enjoy the Australian Pharmacy Professional Conference and Exhibition (APP2021) thanks to support from Official Event Partner, Tourism & Events Queensland. APP2021 and APP2022 are supported by the Queensland Government through Tourism & Events Queensland and features on the It’s Live in Queensland events calendar.

Kos Sclavos AM, APP Convenor and former Guild National President, thanked Tourism & Events Queensland for their on-going support.

“Close to 5,200 pharmacy attendees, many with their families, converged on the Gold Coast last week for APP2021.”

“We’ve already seen the positive impact in Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre (GCCEC) and the events industry. We appreciate the many hundreds of talented staff who have made APP2021 a memorable experience for all attendees – from events hire, trade stand builders, event organisers, photographers, filmographers, hospitality staff, security and many more roles.”

“Attendees filled accommodation in Broadbeach and its surrounding suburbs to capacity. They all enjoyed
the many local restaurants and bars, shopping, and other great tourist activities across the Gold Coast,” said Mr. Sclavos, “Many were lucky to visit the Blues on Broadbeach festival and hear some great music.”

“Many interstate and local attendees stayed a few extra days on either side of their APP2021 trip to enjoy what Queensland has to offer,” said Mr. Sclavos, “It’s great to see tourism returning after what was a tough 2020 for many operators.”

“The Queensland Government’s support for events like APP is crucial to ensuring support for our communities, especially ones like the Gold Coast, who have been hit hard by the COVID-19 impact on tourism.”
“We’re pleased to announce that APP2022 will also be on at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre on 24 – 27 March 2022, so the local tourism and events industries will benefit again.”

“We look forward to seeing everyone again at APP2022. Though registrations open in September 2021, we encourage everyone to sign-up for exclusive updates at to be the first to receive information and special offers.”
