The Pest Animal and Weed Symposium 2019 (PAWS 2019) hosted by the Weed Society of Queensland will be held on 20-23 May 2019 at the Sea World Resort Conference Centre.
Since 1990 the Weed Society Queensland (WSQ) has successfully hosted standalone weed and pest animal symposia, in 2019 WSQ has decided to combine these two successful events. The inaugural Pest Animal and Weed Symposium 2019 (PAWS 2019) will be an opportunity not to be missed. Held at Queensland’s Gold Coast from 20-23 May 2019, PAWS 2019 will provide sponsors and exhibitors with a unique opportunity to get on board and promote their businesses and brands to new and veteran pest plant and animal researchers, practitioner and managers.
We are excited to be able to offer a variety of opportunities for your organisation to be involved in PAWS 2019. To maximise exposure, trade displays will be located in an area designated for lunches, morning and afternoon teas. In a first for the symposium our welcome drinks event will be held in the trade area providing even more exposure for our supporters and their brands. Ample time will be allowed for networking and discussions during breaks in the program and through a social program incorporating a new welcome reception/trade night, symposium dinner and field trips.
PAWS 2019 will feature a range of presentations with a strong emphasis on implementing the latest research and technology while also providing examples of successful on ground works. Field trips will be organised to provide delegates and sponsors with the opportunity to observe a variety of solutions to pest animal and weed issues impacting the environment, economy, community and lifestyle of South East Queensland and Northern NSW.
