BIRD 2022 First Annual Congress


The BIRD Organizing Committee and BIRD Board are thrilled to welcome you to this Congress.

As ever, the focus will be on providing you with high quality scientific content, delivered through an inspiring and engaging program of speakers.

From 7 March 2022, the coronavirus barometer switched to Code Yellow. This is great news for welcoming you to BIRD events. 

Please be aware that:

  • Face masks are not mandatory, however these are recommended for the clinically vulnerable, and also recommended in crowded areas and in places where the 1.5 meter distance cannot be guaranteed
  • The Covid Safe Ticket (CST) is no longer necessary
  • A CO2 meter will be in place to measure the air quality
