The Positive Lounge will be a place of rest, support and networking. For many delegates living with HIV/AIDS, the PLWHA lounge can be a valuable part of their conference experience, providing opportunities to meet and talk with other PLWHA from across the globe in a relaxed and nurturing environment. The lounge will provide complimentary snacks, spaces for informal meetings an relaxation, and private facilities for taking medication.
First Aid and Medical Services
Fully equipped and staffed first aid offices will be available onsite to assist with referrals for HIV/AIDS treatment, methadone treatment, and other support services.
The cloakroom facility of the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre is located on the first floor of the Parkside building. This is a free service provided to participants but space is limited (operated on a first come first served basis).
Child care services will not be available onsite at the conference; however, a wide range of services and activities for children in Sydney are available here.
The conference is committed to providing an accessible environment that can be enjoyed by all delegates. Ramps, stairs, and lifts offer access to each level of the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre and all auditoriums have wheelchair seating and hearing loops. In addition, accessible toilets are located on all levels of the center.
