From a giant brain to egg-like mindfulness pods, APAC Forum 2016’s exhibition launch was a dynamic affair.
Around 500 of APAC Forum’s 1500 delegates attended the exhibition opening at Sydney’s Hilton Hotel.
The “Branarium”, created by New South Wales Health as a learning tool to educate people about the functioning of the brain and what happens during diseases such as Alzheimer’s and brain injuries, was a favourite among the delegates.
The mindfulness pods, provided by Ko Awatea, provided delegates an opportunity to take a reflective break.
Other stands, among the 32 on display, also appealed to delegates, including one by consultancy group KM &T at which delegates were challenged with the task of disassembling and reassembling go-carts.
Some 246 posters were on display, this year in an interactive, digital form.
For the first time this year, Ko Awatea also presented a book store, featuring books from 10 authors present at APAC Forum 2016. Among them were Ko Awatea clinical lead Dave Galler’s Things that Matter and Janine Shepherd’s Getting your Mojo back, as well as professor Anupam Sibal’s Is Your Child Ready to Face the World.
