Summit success in three cities – Auckland next

The Event Organisers Summit Roadshow began on the 5th March and the final event in this series will take place in Auckland on the 29th June.

So far, event organisers and suppliers in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne have networked & talked business, and these summits are the first events for the meetings community to have taken place in each city for over a year.

Event organisers in all three cities are now placing long lead business, with many looking to deliver events with unusually short lead times.

These free one-day events includes tailored meetings, breakfast, lunch and post event drinks, with key-note speeches and intelligence briefings throughout the day to help keep event organisers one step ahead in the business of event management. Apply here for Auckland

What the delegates said.

Brisbane – 5th March at QUT Venue Collection Room Three Sixty

Blandine Cousin Events Project Manager APNIC. “Keynote Speaker Brooke Hanson was awesome and very inspiring, well done on securing her participation! Thank you for the invitation.”

Barbara Johnson Member Services & Events Manager at Lifecorp Street Smart Property Investing. “Great to be face to face and have quality conversations.”

Sydney – 30th March at Stadium Australia

Natalie Young of event management company Key Society. “It was a great opportunity to meet face to face at pre-agreed times, which allowed for greater interaction with the suppliers. I did like the use of the virtual meetings platform for those suppliers who were unable to attend due to the restrictions in place. Stadium Australia was perfect for this event and not only was it easily accessible, but we also had a great outlook onto the pitch.

Evan Powis of Evan Powis Entertainment. “I really liked having the event at stadium Australia as I wasn’t aware of the different event spaces and opportunities to hold different events there. I really enjoyed the backstage tour of the players change rooms and having access to the sporting ground. That was unexpected and very exciting – not something you normally get to do!
