If you’ve ever wondered what exactly a convention bureau is and how you can best use them for your next conference, you’re invited to learn more with the “What is the Bureau” seminars across the country.
Many organisations and those responsible for arranging meetings are unaware of the range of free services available to them through the 16 Convention Bureaux located throughout Australia. There is a convention bureau in each capital city and several located in key regional areas.
Three years ago the convention bureaux of Australia recognised the need to join forces to co-operatively promote their services, and established an innovative campaign called “What is the Bureau?”. The campaign remains an industry first and the What is the Bureau? seminars have been highly successful in raising awareness of the role and benefit to clients of using a convention bureau.
During 2011 the “What is the Bureau?” seminars will be expanded and be held in most capital cities including Brisbane, Sydney Canberra, Melbourne, Hobart, Adelaide and Perth.
The popular after work seminars have been developed for those people within companies and associations who find they are organising a business event which is beyond the realm of their day to day role. These “sometime” meeting organisers are after free information, practical ideas and professional local knowledge which is of value to them in the planning of a business event.
The free seminars are fun, informative and interactive enabling attendees to learn about the functions and services provided by the bureaux of Australia. The format of the seminar includes a DVD presentation and past Bureau clients share their first hand experiences through case studies, there is also a panel Q&A session, information from Qantas who is a major sponsor, networking opportunities and refreshments.
