Since our inception, we have managed hundreds of successful conferences and events. Our team is highly skilled in all phases of the conference planning including strategic sourcing and venue selection, budgeting and procurement, program development and logistical operation, and post-event reconciliation and financial reporting.
Holding a conference can be very costly. How well you plan your budget and manage your finances can truly make or break your event. Our comprehensive budget planning and financial management services cover all aspects of conference finances. We can help you prepare your budget, conduct financial transactions, track expenses and revenue, create financial reports and more. We are also able to provide business intelligence which can help reduce your costs.
Income from sponsors and exhibitors is essential to the financial success of many conferences. We are here to help you raise those funds, and we have a proven history of meeting and often exceeding client targets. 94% of our conferences have delivered a positive financial return.
What We Offer
Conference planning, financial management, online registration, abstracts management, exhibitions and sponsorship, venues … these are just some of our services, and we deliver them with expert knowledge: the easiest way to do them, the things you don’t need to do and the things you might not have thought of doing.
From our beginnings in 2009, and through word of mouth referrals, we have become one of Victoria’s leading professional conference planners and organisers.
As professional conference organisers with more than 25 years’ experience, we take away much of the stress and added workload associated with organising your conference and also manage the registration process and finances for you, with full financial transparency and accountability.
Our team is here to consult and take the work off your hands: as much or as little as you like. And by letting our experts carry the burden of organising, you free up your team to get on with what they’re good at.
