The 2025 ASM Co-Convenors are delighted to announce the theme and dates for the Australian and New Zealand Society for Geriatric Medicine Annual Scientific Meeting next year.

Welcome to Sydney! We are proud to host speakers and delegates for the ANZSGM Annual Scientific Meeting June 10th – 13th 2025. The conference theme, “Illuminating Dementia: from Care to Cure” will explore the dementia journey from diagnostic strategies to emerging treatments.

Our international keynote speaker is Professor Maria Eriksdotter from the Karolinska Institute whose research focus is cell biology in Alzheimer’s disease and factors that affect progress and survival based on data from the world’s largest quality records on dementia diseases (SveDem). The Australasian keynote speaker is Professor Susan Kurrle from the University of Sydney whose research and practice interests centre on dementia, frailty, successful ageing, and intergenerational programs.

Sydney is a city of world-famous attractions and brilliant beaches. Join us at the International Convention Centre Sydney situated near a range of accommodation options with the lively city centre, stunning harbour and the dining and retail district of Barangaroo only a short walk away. Our natural wonders extend beyond our harbour and beaches to the nearby mountains and national parks. Alternatively, enjoy the cultural and built heritage of art galleries, museums, theatres and of course the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge. We have world class and diverse dining experiences and anticipate the coinciding Vivid light show will create a stunning backdrop for the conference dinner.

We look forward to welcoming you to the conference and hope you take the opportunity to explore Sydney and its beautiful surrounds while you’re here.
