The Best Critical Care Trials in the World

The Critical Care Reviews Meeting has grown into a prestigious event in the critical care calendar. Its novel and compelling format, fusing formal presentations with informal conversations, is the perfect way to present ground-breaking trial results and promotes the rich, indepth discussions which accompany them. In just over a decade, the Meeting has forged an outstanding reputation for academic excellence, research dissemination and clinical impact.

The high quality of the scientific presentations attracts faculty and delegates from across the globe. It brings together a diverse array of professionals, from renowned researchers and clinicians to healthcare leaders and policy makers. The major medical journals attend too, adding another layer of anticipation for upcoming trial result presentations. This melting pot of expertise fosters an environment of unparalleled collaboration, enhancing the depth and breadth of discussions.

The atmosphere is very different too. The amazing venue sets the scene. An audience of just several hundred makes the meeting intimate and personal. Live music provides a wonderful ambiance and backdrop. Every aspect of the meeting is considered and optimised.

If you haven't been yet, take the opportunity to join us in Melbourne in December. Critical Care Reviews - it's a meeting like no other.

Our Venue

The Edge at Federation Square is a superb venue for hosting CCR Down Under. It seamlessly blends state-of-the-art facilities with a vibrant atmosphere. Nestled in the heart of Melbourne's bustling city center, this iconic building boasts a stunning location, providing breathtaking views of the scenic Yarra River.

The Edge is renowned for its cutting-edge architecture and design, featuring expansive glass walls that flood the space with natural light and provide a panoramic backdrop of the city's dynamic skyline. The interior is equally impressive, offering a beautiful unique space for our meeting, and creating a professional and inspiring vibe perfect for in-depth discussions of world class science.

The surrounding Federation Square is equally impressive. From chic cafes and world-class restaurants to inspiring art galleries and lively entertainment options, there's something to cater to every taste after a day of invigorating science.

As usual, we aim to provide childcare, hopefully on site. With a park next door, there's even somewhere to bring the kids to play. Of course, they're welcome in the meeting too!


Registration is now open and we expect the meeting to sell out. Numbers are strictly limited to maintain an intimate atmosphere. If you plan on coming to CCR Down Under, be quick!

Scientific Programme

Although we're working hard on the programme for CCR24 in Titanic Belfast, we've quietly started work on the programme for CCR Down Under as well. It will be a while before we start to announce the programme, but it will be full of world class trials, as you would expect.

Social Programme

It wouldn't be CCR without music, so we'll be hosting a live music event on Tuesday, December 10th, in a cool downtown city venue. We'll hopefully also have our usual morning exercise and wellbeing activites. More details to follow.


We're working hard to provide free on-site professional childcare. We can't guarantee it just yet, but that's our aim. Everything we do in Belfast, we aim to do in Melbourne. If we can do this, space will be limited and available on a first-come first served basis.
