‘Speechless and stunned’ was the reactions from one of the two winners of the international tropical holiday competition given away at this year’s record breaking APP2023 on the Gold Coast last month.

The second winner, Mario Atmaja a pharmacist from 7 Day Spearwood Pharmacy in Western Australia, was elated when hearing the news.
“It’s a great surprise indeed. I’m looking forward to the trip but the hardest part will be deciding who I should take to the Maldives!

APP2023 Convenor Kos Sclavos AM thanked the thousands of community pharmacists and industry professionals who attended APP this year and those who entered the once-in-a-lifetime holiday experience.
“APP2023 was extremely memorable for me after witnessing more than 7,400 pharmacy professionals turn up in record numbers and reconfirm the professions desire to reconnect with one another and learn more about clinical governance and the exciting changes happening across the healthcare sector.
“This year, it is really exciting to give away not just one amazing tropical holiday but two tropical holidays!
Congratulations to our two winners!” says Mr Sclavos.
