Conferences and seminars

“This conference is above and beyond anything I could have ever imagined; I have developed excellent contacts and have a fresh direction in my approach to my work.”

– Feedback from delegate to Anex Australian Drugs Conference

Penington Institute conferences and seminars draw professionals from across the health and drug services sector to share their insights and research about current and emerging issues.

The conferences are also attended by law enforcement bodies, drug prevention, treatment organisations and other community groups enabling stakeholders to collaborate in developing lasting change in the way we tackle problematic drug use in the community.

Our conferences are highly regarded for their relevance and always focus on cutting edge issues.

The 2014 Australian Drugs Conference – Ice and Altered Realities – was held 14-15 October at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
