We are emerging from COVID 19 and the government is asking us to get back to business. Elements Resort and Spa in Byron Bay is the perfect place to do this and maybe get a little bit of a break from our hectic year after the conference ends. RADAIM Business 2021 will focus on the business of Medical Imaging and provide high-end management and vendor product guidance for the near future. Board executives, Radiologists, purchasing/procurement officers, practice managers, department heads, modality team leaders, decision-making MIT’s and anyone interested in future trends – this is for you.

Registration will be available mid-January 2021 with speakers and preliminary program coming shortly.

It will be great to see you all in person once again – its been too long!

APRES SESSION DRINKS

We recognise that there are many integrated facets involved in our exciting future and believe that our sponsors and exhibitors who are at the forefront, should have decent opportunities to discuss and/or display their products. Vendors often know much more about what is available than the rest of the market. For this reason RADAIM BUSINESS 2021 will be a shared stage where vendors can promote their product and take part in discussions with buyers and key medical imaging spokespersons.

Delegates who attend RADAIM BUSINESS 2021 are not there just to attend a social gathering – they are genuinely interested in the best the profession has to offer and are often decision makers in their workplace.

Ensure these decision makers see your product by sponsoring or exhibiting at RADAIM BUSINESS 2021
