Social Program

The IAP 2022 scientific content is the most valuable legacy of the Congress, without a doubt.

For those who can travel to the meeting, we wanted to make your journey unique and memorable.

Our social program has been designed to ensure you can meet and network with colleagues, both old and new, and expose you to some of Sydney’s most iconic landmarks and giving you a taste of Australia through our cuisine choices.

We have curated the overall program to allow time to explore Sydney by yourself and have put some suggestions together for you.
