Thank you to all our delegates, sponsors and presenters for a superb QRW2015! Over 1200 people attended and enjoyed a fantastic set of 11 meetings.


Save these dates for QRW2016: 28th Aug. - 2nd Sept.

Newsflash: In 2016 QRW is "on tour". Instead of our usual Queenstown base, QRW will be held in Nelson, another beautiful South Island destination. Key meetings in Nelson will be MedSci, QMB, NZSBMB, ASCEPT and eight QMB satellites!

More information coming soon, and look forward to seeing you there! 

Please note, AWCBR is remaining in Queenstown.
