Speaking of networking...

The Symposium provides a number of opportunities to network with event professionals from all over Australia.

Escape the cold!

The Symposium is a great learning experience...and a great incentive to escape the cooler weather! After a long hard, wet winter, some sunshine sounds like an excellent idea to get all those creative, productive juices flowing again for Spring.

To sweeten the deal, there are also a number of accommodation and activity deals available to Symposium delegates who want to spend a little longer on the Sunshine Coast, including everything from bush walks to sea life, surfing, horse riding and gourmet food and wine.
