This year’s National Drug Trends Conference will be held at the Australian National Maritime Museum, Sydney on Monday, 20th October 2014 from 8.30am.

I hope you will agree we have a really exciting program this year. The National Drug Trends Conference will present recent findings in illicit drug use, markets and related harms across Australia and internationally. Convened by Australia’s largest drug monitoring systems, the Illicit Drug Reporting System (IDRS) and the Ecstasy and Related Drugs Reporting System (EDRS), the one day conference will include the first release of the 2014 findings.


We are also delighted to announce that there will also be presentations from a number of distinguished international and local guest speakers, including Mr Jeremy Douglas (United Nations), Detective Sergeant Keith Randall (AFP Drug Squad), Dr Chris Hayes (John Hunter Hospital), A/Prof Nadine Ezard (St Vincent’s Hospital), Detective Superintendent Tony Cooke (NSW Police Drug Squad), Dr Karen Chronister (Kirby Institute), Ms Joanne Gerstner-Stevens (Victoria Police), Prof Simon Lenton (NDRI) Mr James Fetherston (NDRI) and Ms Kerryn Butler (NDARC).

Visitors to the museum can park all day for $13 at Harbourside Secure Parking, located at 100 Murray Street, Pyrmont. Remember to get your parking ticket stamped at the museum reception.

We look forward to seeing you there.
