“This was the first ever Conference in Australia and New Zealand dedicated to Diagnostic Error. ASHM did a most remarkable job in making this a landmark conference. Their professionalism and dedication to excellence is truly outstanding.”

“The ASHM Conference Division did an absolutely outstanding job organizing the 4th International Symposium on Hepatitis in Substance Users (INHSU 2015) which was held in Sydney, Australia and the 5th International Symposium on Hepatitis in Substance Users (INHSU 2016) which was held in Oslo, Norway. Both conferences were a huge success, with the numbers of participants increasing from 350 in Sydney to 450 participants in Oslo. Nadine and her team did an absolutely incredible job organizing the conference and I was incredibly happy with how the overall planning went. I would highly commend them for their efforts. We look forward to having the ASHM Conference Division organize the INHSU 2017 meeting in New York, United States.”
Associate Professor Jason Grebely | President INHSU | Senior Research Fellow (UNSW), Viral Hepatitis Clinical Research Program, The Kirby Institute
“The ASHM Conference team proved highly professional, efficient, and flexible around all aspects of the Congress and the needs of the delegates.”
Professor Basil Donovan, Immediate Past President, ISSTDR
“I am writing to personally express my sincerest thanks to the ASHM Conference Division in their superb efforts in making the WIPC Conference the superb and outstanding success it was. The conference delegate evaluations and the ongoing anecdotal stories I continue to hear about this conference are testimony to the Conference Divisions ability and commitment. Without their efforts, this conference had many attributes of being a flop, firstly pertaining to the confirmation of funding (arising from the change in Federal Government) being extraordinarily late and then the very short time frame in which the team had to convene the conference. They managed to convene an international committee against the time lines of any normal conference and pull off undoubtedly one of the best Indigenous peoples conferences in health ever convened in Australia.”
Associate Professor James Ward, Convenor WIPC Conference, Head Infectious Diseases Research - Aboriginal Health, South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute
"I have been involved in the organisation of a number of national scientific conferences over the past 15 years and I can, without hesitation, say that the ASHM management was the most efficient, thorough and professional group that I have worked with. Throughout the process, levels of communication, negotiation and financial management were exemplary."
Professor Frank Bowden | Professor of Medicine, Australian National University Medical School
"I said it on Saturday but I just want to say it again - thank you so much for organising the meeting so perfectly."
Professor David Patterson | Consultant, Infectious Diseases Unit, Royal Brisbane Hospital
"The success of our meeting was in large part due to the involvement of ASHM and your organisation of every aspect of the meeting was highly professional and meticulous."
Associate Professor Katherine Brown | Chair, Chapter Committee, Australasian Chapter of Sexual Health Medicine
"Thanks for the fantastic job you and the team did last week - professionalism makes all the difference!"
Senior Policy Officer | NSW Department of Health
"The ASHM Conference and Events Division provided professional, flexible and knowledgeable support to the conference organising committee. The organisational capabilities of the ASHM Conference and Events Division have enhanced the already growing record which this organisation has in the response to hepatitis C in Australia."
Professor Gregory Dore | Head, Viral Hepatitis Program, National Centre in HIV Epidemiology and Clinical Research
"Just a brief note to thank you for all your terrific efforts in organising the conference. It was an outstanding success. I look forward to a long and fruitful partnership."
