The First Meetings and Events Australia Annual National Conference, new brand EVOLVE was held in the beautiful city of Brisbane. Brisbane City has seen a huge boost in infrastructure and new hotel developments over the past few years to make way for a rise in International delegations to International Meeting and Event Planners. And we were so lucky to be amongst the crowd that experienced Brisbane in its new light.
Thank you to Meetings and Events Australia and Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre Team and all industry sponsors for a fabulous three days of facilitating connections in an industry built for connections.
As Experts in Themed Events, Special Event Design and Event Production, specialising in turning your Event Vision to Reality. We were so excited to experience the theme of Evolve’s Welcome Function. A Magical forest full of creatures indeed with top-notch creativity in Special Event Catering by The Fresh Collective held at The Queensland Museum which is a short stroll from The Convention Centre.
The floating dessert station menu consisted of Crushed Ants Marshmallows, Cricket and Pistachio Truffles to Insect Suckers (handmade lollipops), this was matched with Roving Entertainment of Crawly Creatures Stilt walkers presented by Onstage Entertainment. The overall vibe of the night made for a memorable experience for delegates to connect and built meaningful relationships.
The conference program was motivating and inspiring showing the way the event industry is evolving with technological advances that assist with delivery of amazing events. Encouraging planners and PCO’s to think beyond the everyday pressure of running events, to looking after their mental health, creating events with meaning and impact whilst building resilience and refining leadership skills along the way. With a fabulous range of National and International Speakers like Peter Greste and Mark Bouris. The event ticked a lot of boxes and had many AHA moments.
The Three days of learning ended with a fabulous Gala Award Night held in the Plaza Ballroom of Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre honouring excellence in Meetings and Events.
Congratulations to All category winners for their achievements and we look forward to attending next year’s Evolve in the beautiful Hunter Valley in NSW.
