PCOA Conference wraps in Brisbane marking a successful year
PCOA president Barry Neame said 18 webinars had been held by the PCOA this year, with an average of 70 attendees per session.
“We have had probably the most fantastic year in terms of fulfilling our objectives of providing ongoing education and ongoing professional development for all of our industry PCOs and our suppliers,” he said.
“This is great encouragement for us. It shows we are all working together towards being more professional and to make sure that our clients have the experience and the professional application of our work that they deserve.”
The delegates were also treated to a special preview of one of the city’s up-and-coming event precincts on Monday evening.
Brisbane Marketing joined with Howard Smith Wharves to host a welcome function and showcase the unique riverfront development taking shape on the disused 1880s-era site under the iconic Story Bridge. Opening in 2018, Howard Smith Wharves will house exhibition and event spaces, a craft brewery, an array of chic restaurants and an Art Series hotel.
Brisbane Convention Bureau general manager Rob Nelson said he was delighted to welcome PCOA Conference delegates to Brisbane.
“Brisbane is constantly evolving with new and unique venues, hotels and experiences and HSW is a shining example of quality infrastructure that will further enhance our already strong business events offering,” he said.
