I said at the outset that I am delighted to be welcoming you all in person, and I meant it – more so than usual when you consider the enormous challenges our sector and others have experienced over the past two years. I want to particularly acknowledge and thank sincerely the PCOA management committee – Paula Leishman and Karen Sainsbury, along with the PCOA councillors – Mary Sparksman, Mike Pickford, Anne Marie Quinn, Renee Bennett, Arna Wahl Davies and our fantastic team, who keep PCOA operating Maxine Tod and Cindy Axisa. What a team that has built the PCOA brand over the last 14 Years.
The program for the Professional Conference Organisers Association (PCOA) Conference in Tasmania from January 29 – 31, 2022, has been released, revealing a range of topics to be explored, including the industry’s recovery and future challenges, hybrid and virtual events, aviation and mental health.
Exhibitors are champing at the bit to show their wares at the 2021 PCOA annual conference, undeterred by a change of date.
PCOA is planning on get members off to a flying start to 2022.
The Association postponed its 2021 conference, scheduled for early December, in the wake of new COVID-19 outbreaks.
The 2021 conference has been moved to 29-31 January 2022, and the venue, Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart, is unchanged.
After a difficult 2020 we invite you to stop, breathe and reconnect with your industry in the fresh air and natural surroundings of Tasmania. There is no better time to take stock as we embark on a new era.
