Major biomedical engineering conference in Sydney this week

The future-focused conference will take place across all four levels at ICC Sydney and has surpassed delegate and sponsorship targets.

Sydney is playing host to a prestigious biomedical engineering conference this week, with the 45th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society.

Taking place across all levels of ICC Sydney, 24-27 July, the event surpassed delegate and sponsorship targets, featuring more than 1,000 speakers and 1,200 poster displays. A staggering 87 percent of delegates are international, resulting in an estimated economic impact of $7 million.

The future-focused event will bring together more than 2,300 experts from around the world to discuss the latest advances in biomedical engineering. Key presentations include Professor Nicholas Opie, who will discuss his company’s advances with a product called Stentrode, which allows people experiencing paralysis to control external equipment with their minds.

The event will also host a Women in Engineering forum for the first time. This sold-out event will feature an all-female speaker line-up and fulfills the committee’s diversity, equity and inclusion objectives.

The event is being managed by The Arinex Group, who had a top-down responsibility for everything from speaker management, to program management and accommodation.

“It is incredibly rewarding to be a part of this prestigious event and to be privy to the innovation these bright minds are leading. We congratulate the Committee for their hard work and wish all attendees a successful and enjoyable conference,” Arinex Group chief executive officer, Nicole Walker, said.
