Neuroscience nurses from around the world will be coming to the Top End to attend the 13th World Federation of Neuroscience Nurses (WFNN) Congress.
The Darwin Convention Centre will play host to the notable international event in July 2021.
As an emerging destination for health research, the Northern Territory is an ideal choice to host the Congress.
Vicki Evans, WFNN Vice President and Scientific Chair, said the Congress will feature a strong scientific program with lectures from the world’s leaders in neuroscience nursing and will provide an opportunity for delegates to refresh their knowledge on a broad range of topics.
‘The Congress will provide a platform for an open dialogue about best practice that will challenge thinking to contribute to better care worldwide’ added Evans.
The Congress theme of ‘Create – Imagine – Inspire – Discover’ fits perfectly with the Top End region. The Darwin Convention Centre has a reputation of taking delegates away from day to day routines and encouraging them network, knowledge share and think differently, leading to new ideas and positive change.
Darwin Convention Centre General Manager, Janet Hamilton said securing this event for Darwin demonstrated the region’s strength in hosting international conferences.
‘Darwin is the perfect destination for business events such as the WFNN Congress, where delegates can enjoy our vibrant multicultural city and amazing tourism experiences.
‘The Darwin Convention Centre is proud to host business event like this which are vital to tourism and promoting our industry strengths’ Hamilton said.
Delegates will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in Darwin experiences as they visit Crocosaurus Cove, the Royal Flying Doctor Service tourist facility and Mindil Beach Sunset Markets.
The WFNN Executive and Scientific Committee are looking forward to working with the Northern Territory Convention Bureau and Darwin Convention Centre to deliver a world-class event that enables neuroscience nursing to deliver real change.
