Welcome to DFA 2019!

In 2019, we’ll once again be bringing some of the globe’s most renowned researchers and clinicians in the field of diabetes and diabetic foot disease to sunny Queensland. Just meters from the Brisbane river, with the cityscape as the backdrop, DFA 2019 will deliver future-focused content with an emphasis on the practical. And it gets even bigger! With the 8th International Symposium on Diabetic Foot held in the Netherlands in May 2019, (also the world’s largest meeting devoted to diabetic foot disease), we’re then bringing the “Olympics of Diabetic Foot Disease Downunder” to DFA 2019 in September. Our program features not one but three international key speakers who have played key roles in the development of the much anticipated 2019 International (IWGDF) guidelines released next May.

DFA 2019 is focused on delivering the latest in global research that’s also tailored to every day Australian practice. Providing the perfect opportunity to engage with dedicated health professionals and researchers keen to set the new Australian standard in diabetic foot disease research, care and management. What remains abundantly clear though, is the crucial role our exceptional conference partners play, and how in 2019, our focus is to elevate the exhibition experience even higher. With a limited number of partnership and exhibition opportunities available, we look forward to working with you and making DFA 2019, a conference and exhibition space like no other.

Taking it to the next level

Been to Brisvegas lately?

Because in 2019, we're taking the conference from the beach to the riverfront. With the water so close, you could drop in a fishing line!

Introducing Howard Smith Wharves

To say little ol’ Brisbane is undergoing a small rejuvenation, would be the understatement of the decade. With new developments happening across the city, we’ve secured what can only be described as a conference ‘game changer’, because stepping onto Howard Smith Wharves is an event within itself. 

Located beneath the Story Bridge, Howard Smith Wharves delivers that relaxed conference feel, right in the heart of the city. With a short seven minute stroll along the boardwalk to reach the hustle and bustle of the city and the river close enough you could drop in a fishing line, it offers the best of both worlds.

It’s also got some history, as it began as a project to provide locals with relief work during the depression in the 1930’s before being leased by shipping company, Howard Smith Co Ltd...hence the name! And in 2018, these incredible city spaces and heritage listed buildings have been restored to provide a space to celebrate the best of Brisbane; to eat, drink, play stay, and of course learn all in the one place.

HSW Hero 2

A view from all rooms

All the conference spaces are positioned along the river's edge. Look one way to see the cityscape and beyond. Look the other way and see the dramatic cliff face with its very own 'cliff lift'. Surrounded by green spaces, an over-water bar and even an olive grove, DFA 2019 will be a conference like no other. 

Memorable Simplicity

The menu focuses on environmentally sustainable and organic produce, offering a food experience both comforting and memorable. With David Finlayson, the Director of Culinary running the onsite kitchens, the DFA 2019 menu will reflect fresh and sophisticated simplicity.

Unique Experience

Learning is always better if you're as inspired by your environment as much as the content. By combining heritage features with state-of-the-art technology, our learning spaces will transform from large to small and from light to dark throughout the program. To compliment the learning spaces, the exhibition hub will be filled with colour, interaction and personality. Our aim is for delegates to eat, network and unwind in an inspired space ideal for Instagramable moments. 

Conference Spaces

Designed by internationally renowned Woods Bagot Architects, Howard’s Hall is Brisbane’s new landmark. Featuring uninterrupted views of the city skyline, retractable glass doors, state-of-the-art technology and private riverfront deck, this magnificent space is the central hub for DFA 2019. Housing the massive exhibition hall, main workshop room seating up to 200 delegates, conference registration, and all day conference catering, Howard’s Hall will be the place delegates flock to. DFA 2019 has exclusive and private access to Howard's Hall, the Rivershed (a relaxed 20 second stroll away) and Bougainvillea House which is nestled behind it. With an array of restaurants, stunning over-water bar under the bridge and a brand new 5 star Art Series Hotel opening on site soon, stepping onto Howard Smith Wharves is an event within itself.

Our International Keynote Speakers

We are proud to announce our first three internationally acclaimed speakers whose influence is critical to best practice treatment and research in diabetic foot disease around the globe. All three keynote speakers are also responsible for writing chapters in the much anticipated 2019 International (IWGDF) diabetic foot guidelines. Once again, our international speakers will not only be presenting during the plenary sessions, but also in our smaller interactive workshop sessions running across the two days. And this is just the start! Stay tuned as we announce more speakers in the coming months.
