Event organisers are all set to gather for the special events tradeshow of the year, Sydney’s Event Showcase: RSVP 2011 at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre to be held on 10 and 11 August 2011.

The highly anticipated Sydney’s Event Showcase RSVP ’11 will be held on 10-11 August 2011 at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition centre.

Tickets to a unique selection of Event Master Class Sessions are now available for all registered visitors to the show. This exclusive series of educational seminars, panel discussions and case studies will provide visitors with valuable insights into the world of events.

A line-up of event experts are confirmed to talk about a variety of vital event topics, helping visitors event-related skills and providing valuable industry insights.

Presenting at the show will be, Darren Waide, one of the Directors at Fourth Wall Events with Breaking Your Creative Barriers, an interactive session to develop people’s creativity.

“My aim is to give the audience an essential injection of inspiration and motivation, so they can to return to their desks with a fresh approach. August is the perfect time of year to spark interest in innovative and imaginative thinking which can be carried into the development of the audience’s own events. It is important for our industry to be inventive, cutting edge and daring, and sometimes say ‘yes, we can achieve this in a different way'”, said Waide.

A popular topic in this year’s program is O its Harpo! Representatives from Cambridge Events, Tourism NSW and Tourism Australia will reflect on the PR stunt around the visit of American TV celebrity Oprah Winfrey last December, the delivery of the welcome party, working with a multitude of international stakeholders and the most tortuous task of all, putting the O on the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

“The Event Master Classes present a fantastic opportunity to do live case studies such as ours. This way, we can really get across the processes that are involved, the obstacles that one needs to overcome and how we manage to put all the pieces together in the end to deliver a successful event; a great way for event planners that are experienced or new to the trade to live through the course that took months in just 45 minutes,” said Rodney Cambridge, director of Cambridge Events.

Over the two days, Event Master Class topics will range from how to maximise event and marketing ROI, deal with VIP clients, the success story of an Australian woman in the industry, the latest trends and technologies and how to apply them to special events.

“What you put in you’ll see coming out, whether it happens immediately or in the far future. The same goes for continuing education – invest time in learning and your skills and knowledge will grow,” said  Felicity Zadro, managing director of Zadro Communications, explaining that the term ROI should be reversed to IOR, meaning investment on return in her session on driving return on investment from event marketing.
