Nau mai, haere mai ki Ōtautahi!! 

(Welcome to Christchurch!)

Join us at this year’s Annual Scientific Meeting in Ōtautahi, Christchurch, New Zealand, the country whose COVID response is recognised by the WHO as one of the strongest on the planet, in the city that birthed HealthPathways and whose integrated health care system is internationally recognised. Nestled between the Pacific coastline and the spectacular Southern Alps, the garden city of Christchurch has risen from the rubble of both natural and man-made disasters, emerging into a strong and innovative global metropolis.

This conference is changing the way we do ACEM Annual Scientific Meetings. In keeping with our theme Mahi Tahi – working together – we won’t be having concurrent sessions – we will all be in the same auditorium, but with intimate and highly interactive sessions. These include evolving clinical scenarios supplemented with electronic polling, led by a diverse panel of clinical experts, and quick fire presentations presenting a rich potpourri of research updates from our international emergency medicine community. In addition, enjoy a fine selection of teamwork and wellness activities, social engagements and lectures from passionate leaders of the non-medical world.

Check out all the stunning scenery Christchurch has to offer with walks along the crater rim, strolls around the botanical gardens, punting on the Avon or relaxing on our beautiful uncrowded beaches.  Tickle the taste buds with gourmet cooking classes, wine tasting or craft beer tasting at the new Riverside Market. Stoke the adrenaline at Christchurch Adventure Park with ziplining, mountain biking or rogaining.

Join us for education, exploration and inspiration.

Come to Christchurch for an unforgettable adventure.

Ma te wa! (See you soon!)
