Dates and Events

The 5th Queensland Pest Animal Symposium (QPAS) will be held at Rydges Southbank Townsville from Monday 7 November to Thursday 10 November 2016. As the only Statewide pest animal symposium aimed at operational staff, QPAS is the single best opportunity for prospective sponsors to demonstrate their capacity to new partners. 

In 2016 we are anticipating an attendance of 150 - 200 delegates over the three days of the Symposium. With the chosen theme of “Options, Obstacles & Outcomes” we anticipate to cover topics such as new and existing management tools, decision support, costs and benefits, community initiatives, social issues, resource issues, cutting-edge research and the what, where and why of options, obstacles & outcomes.  

Ample time will be scheduled for networking and discussion during the Symposium and social program, which will consist of a Welcome Reception and Symposium Dinner. Field trips will be held on Wednesday 9 November 2016 to showcase research and management activities of peri urban and rural pest animal issues affecting North Queensland. Trade displays will be exhibited throughout the Symposium.
