WCVAA Sydney, Australia

World Congress of Veterinary Anaesthesia & Analgesia - March 27 to 30, 2023
Clinical Pain Conference - March 25 to 26, 2023

We are excited to host the 2023 World Congress of Veterinary Anaesthesia & Analgesia (WCVAA) at the Sydney Masonic Centre in Sydney, Australia.

There is universal support within the Australian & New Zealand veterinary anaesthesia community to host the 2023 WCVAA and deliver an outstanding scientific program with a focus on Chronic Pain, as well as a 2-day pre-congress education program on acute pain and its management.  We are putting together an excellent social program including a final afternoon at Sydney’s Taronga Zoo with an opportunity to see the world-famous Bird Show.  WCVAA attendees and accompanying persons have every opportunity to participate in the social program and to sample Sydney’s friendly culture and nightlife all of which are on your doorstep. 

Sydney is an easily accessible, vibrant, safe, friendly multi-national city and gateway to all that Australia has to offer.  We can’t wait to welcome both our international and domestic visitors.

Whether before or after the WCVAA, Australia is ready to show you ‘the sights’ and the list is endless. On this website you’ll find suggestions of some locations and “How to Purchase Your International Airline Ticket” to cost effectively get here.
We look forward to hosting the 2023 WCVAA in Sydney.
