ABCA Convention 2022

InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort, Gold Coast

27-29 October

Convention 2022 is all about reconnecting. Reconnecting with this amazing community of chiropractors, reconnecting with our love for the profession, reconnecting with our own personal growth and ultimately, better serving our communities.

Come October, it will be over three years since our last Convention in Singapore. We loved every minute of that Convention, and the feedback we received was overwhelmingly positive. We are looking forward to bringing the high level of speakers, skill development and FUN that have become synonymous with ABCA Conventions. Set at the beautiful InterContinental Sanctuary Cove, on the northern end of Queensland’s Gold Coast, we look forward to reconnecting in this tranquil 5 star setting, with lagoon pool, lush tropical gardens and recently refurbished rooms.
