Registration

Registration now open!

The Dietitians Australia 2021 Conference will be a hybrid event, combining the live in-person event in Melbourne with a virtual online conference, COVID permitting. We will be keeping abreast of developments and provide updates as needed.

Offering the full conference experience, including presentations, workshops, social events and networking opportunities to both in-person and virtual attendees simultaneously, a hybrid event offers delegates more choice and flexibility.

If you prefer in-person networking and learning, you can still attend in-person to experience the collegiality, networking opportunities and unique atmosphere of the national conference.

If you are unable to travel, or prefer to learn from the comfort of home, you now have the option to attend virtually, and connect with colleagues, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors.

See below for registration pricing, and click the Register Now button to complete your registration.

See you online, or in-person, in 2021!

 

Register prior to Wednesday 12 May to take advantage of early bird discounts, and your chance to WIN!

Why attend?

The Dietitians Australia conference welcomes Dietitians from across Australia and overseas each year to learn and network together.

The scientific program brings together a range of expert speakers and panels to present the latest research, case studies and practices centred around the conference theme of “What’s possible?” and incorporates the key academic themes of transform, reinvent, and diversify.

The program has been developed to offer something for all aspects of the profession, both clinical and non-clinical, across management, administration, education, research, advisory roles, communication, program development and implementation, regulatory roles, policy development, food service, food security, food supply and sustainability.

The move to a hybrid format in 2021, with both face-to-face and virtual sessions, offers professionals located in regional and remote areas the opportunity to attend the conference without incurring additional travel costs, and reduces their time away from work and family.

With networking breaks throughout the program, for both in-person and virtual attendees, networking opportunities are amplified by the social program encompassing both the Welcome Reception and Conference Dinner functions.

We look forward to welcoming you to Melbourne!
