Northern Australian Investment Forum


33 Creative worked with Austrade to deliver the 2017 Northern Australian Investment Forum held at the Cairns Convention Centre in November 2017. Held over three days, the forum was an international event  catering for over 500 people, many of them travelling from overseas,  and had Ministerial involvement. The event featured a thriving marketplace, gala dinner, and several live performances.


Event planning and coordination – we developed a detailed project plan, and managed this throughout the contract, attended regular meetings, confirmed, engaged and liaised with third party contractors, liaised with venue and all other suppliers, and ran the event on the ground over the three days.

Conference Management – we liaised with speakers, managed the event with 4 of our key staff and 4 local staff, managed the registration sign in area, booked and managed translation booths, managed the trade show (with 60 tradeshow delegates)

Dinners/Events – we developed the theme and creative for the dinner and produced all aspects of the dinner and managed a number of high level breakfast functions. We sourced and managed talent, welcome to country, and all suppliers to ensure all events ran smoothly.

Creative theme development, design and event styling – we developed the look and feel in consultation with Austrade and applied this across all aspects of the event, including set design, table dressings, media wall and trade show design and management

Technical equipment and Services – we worked closely with the venue’s AV team to ensure all AV and other technical requirements were met to ensure a professional yet cost effective solution was reached.
