Event management for major Defence industry conference in 2016 and 2017

Australian Defence department conference, 33 Creative

Overview

33 Creative worked with the Australian Government’s Department of Defence to produce and manage the annual Defence and Industry Conference at the Convention Centre, Canberra in 2016 and 2017.

This event is attended by more than 1,200 people and includes a welcome function on the eve of the conference. It serves as a key moment for the Government to bring senior members of the Department of Defence together with wider defence industry leaders, so that they can deliver key messages and exchange information.

Approach

Our team managed conference registration, successfully using the new Events Air registration platform to manage a large number of delegates. We produced the conference reception including Welcome to Country and performance, managed speaker preparation and event pre-briefing and provided logistics support. We managed all conference finances including collecting all registration monies on behalf of the Commonwealth and acquitting funds. We handled post-conference surveying and reporting, which found great levels of satisfaction among delegates.
