On behalf of the Histotechnology Group of Queensland (HGQ) Committee, I welcome you to join us in Cairns for the Queensland State Histology Conference and HGQ Annual General Meeting. The conference will be held in Cairns – the gateway to the tropics.

Join us in Cairns where you can feel grounded and connect with nature in a place unlike anywhere else – fringed by reef and enveloped by rainforest, with the Great Barrier Reef at our doorstep. Visiting Tropical North Queensland feels like a world away from the rest of Australia. From ancient culture and modern marvels, larrikin characters and must-see creatures to reef and rainforest, peaks and palm trees, it’s the perfect place for this years’ conference.

The conference will be filled with technical presentations, learning of new products and services from our sponsors and exhibitors, as well as the all-important networking activities.

Please put Friday 7 – Sunday 9 October 2022 in your diary so you can attend what will be a sensational conference. The Pullman Cairns Reef Hotel Casino is Conference Headquarters.

We look forward to seeing you in Cairns.
