Producers, Managers
and Convenors


Professional conference organisers, in-house event planners and meeting industry professionals will be heading to Adelaide in December 2023 for the PCO Association’s 15th annual conference and exhibition.

The event will bring together more than 400 meeting professionals at the Adelaide Convention Centre between December10 and 12. Sixty suppliers to the meetings industry are expected to take part in the trade exhibition.

PCO Association president Barry Neame, in announcing the decision to make Adelaide the venue, said PCOA was very excited to be hosting the conference at the Adelaide Convention Centre. The conference was last held in Adelaide in 2015.

Damien Kitto, CEO of Business Events Adelaide, said his organisation was really pleased to welcome PCOA to Adelaide

“While many professional conference organisers have already booked events into Adelaide next year, PCOA provides the opportunity to showcase Adelaide’s capability to host exceptional business events.

“Team Adelaide can’t wait for the event to arrive to showcase new products, infrastructure, and our growing innovation districts to PCOA attendees.  Adelaide has so much to offer event organisers. Adelaide is an easy can-do city in which to host a business event.

“Business Events Adelaide works closely with the Department of the Premier and Cabinet and the Adelaide Economic Development Agency. They well understand the value and the economic tail a business event delivers to Adelaide.

“The local organising committee has started work on the regional and city familiarisation programs.  We look forward to sharing a bespoke program for PCOA over the coming months.”

The PCO Association is the leading body representing the interests of professional conference organisers and event managers in Australia and New Zealand.

The association’s objectives are to increase the standard of professionalism of its members and promote a better understanding of the roles, functions and contributions of practitioners in the conference and event sector.
