Of course, we cannot forget the many hundreds of session chairpersons, presenters, and pre-Congress workshop organisers who have been instrumental in the creation and delivery of the program throughout Congress.

The team at The Meeting Planners was absolutely crucial to the successful delivery of the event, and along with the staff of the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, ensured that we had every angle covered in the lead up to and throughout the week.

We are also grateful for the outstanding efforts of the many volunteers who worked with us throughout the week, and we thank you for giving of your time in such a friendly and efficient manner. It is humbling to see the enthusiasm and commitment of tomorrow’s OT leaders.

Finally, we thank the thousands of delegates who attended and supported this important event, and hope that you have gained as much from your time at the Congress as we did in staging it for you.
