President's Welcome

It is my great pleasure to invite you to attend ASOHNS 74th Annual Scientific Meeting, being held in Perth, Western Australia in March 2024. 

Home to some of the most innovative medical breakthroughs, this beautiful and dynamic city is sure to capture your interest.

Led by Shane Ling, Convener, and Jafri Kuthubutheen, Scientific Convener, the Organising Committee is creating a meeting that will expand your ENT skills and enhance your knowledge. Both the main program and satellite meetings ensure a wide scope of learning opportunities that reflect the breadth of our
subspecialty expertise.

We welcome submission of abstracts from both new and established medical researchers.

With International and national presenters, the meeting is also a forum for the presentation and discussion of the outstanding health and medical research being carried out locally.

Perth residents are relaxed and friendly, the weather warm and sunny and, if you choose, there is the opportunity to travel further to other WA environs and visit some of the oldest and grandest landscapes on earth.

We warmly welcome all local and international guests to enjoy their time in Perth and to take the opportunity to connect with current and future colleagues.

Conveners' Invitation

We welcome you to the 74th annual ASOHNS Annual Scientific Meeting, being held from Friday 8 to Sunday 10 March 2024 in Perth, Western Australia.

This year’s theme is “Inspiring Innovation”. This reflects our desire to explore the forefronts of our specialty as we develop innovative ways to treat our patients while simultaneously recognising and acknowledging what inspires us in our search for the best quality care for our patients. Our full program will cater for all our sub-specialties, and we are confident that you will find many useful and inspiring talks.

We have assembled leading keynote speakers from around the world for this meeting. We will also have our own renowned local experts on our faculty.

The meeting will take place at the Crown Perth and our gala dinner will be held at the world award-winning Optus Stadium. We will also have several premeeting workshops and courses held around the time of the main meeting to complement the program.

We look forward to welcoming you to the beautiful city of Perth which lies on the banks of the magnificent Swan River and acknowledge the Traditional Owners of our lands. We encourage you to take advantage of our wonderful climate and explore its natural beauty during your visit to ASOHNS 2024.
