It has never been more important for major event hosts, local suppliers and international organisations to work together in a rapidly changing global event market.
Major event planning is becoming more complex, event services more specialised and host organisations are looking for new ways to capture more benefits at lower cost.
The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) has shown how the right network of businesses is key, and reinforced Queensland, Australia, as an important hub for major event capability in the Asia Pacific.
This forum will explore change in the global event market over the decade of preparations for the GC2018, implications for event attraction, planning and delivery, and the opportunities this presents for business.
At this event, hear from the leaders of the Commonwealth Games Federation and GC2018 and learn how your organisation can take advantage through panel analysis, discussion and Q&As with major event hosts, industry experts and sector leaders.
The event will be comprised of the following sessions:
