2021 ALA Symposium

Join us for the 2021 ALA Symposium on the Gold Coast, where together we will be exploring new pathways.  

After a challenging 2020, we are very much looking forward to being able to re-connect face-to-face next year, while taking into consideration that we may need to make some adjustments to ensure everyone's wellbeing. What we can guarantee is that the Symposium will feature all the things our community has come to value ensuring its position as the pre-eminent learning and networking opportunity on your annual calendar.

This two-and-a-half-day program will feature:

  • A variety of 1.5-hour and 3-hour sessions on Friday 14 and Sunday 16 May

  • A full day of plenary sessions on Saturday 15 May 

  • Sponsored breakfast education sessions 

  • Opportunity to meet with lymphoedema suppliers, and 

  • Evening social events including networking drinks and a Symposium dinner 

We encourage you to become involved and submit a proposal to present a session. 

The Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort is located just steps away from Mirage Beach, providing the perfect opportunity for a beach stroll before or after a busy day of Symposium sessions. Set amongst 6 hectares of sparkling lagoons and tropical gardens, Sheraton Grand Mirage is a tropical paradise.

We look forward to seeing you in May 2021.
