PCO ICMS Australasia has been embedded into the organising committee since Brisbane won the bid in 2016, helping to deliver this benchmark event, achieving record global participation, sponsorship and government buy-in. The high security event is highly complex – security, stakeholder management, 13 concurrent sessions, satellite meetings, a huge exhibition component, and accredited media.
Australasia’s oldest professional conference organiser ICMSA has had plenty of industry firsts in its 57 year history but has never managed three meetings all starting on the same day. Come June 26, ICMSA staff will be manning registration desks in Brisbane and Melbourne in preparation for an influx of close to 5,000 delegates attending three separate meetings.
ICMS Australasia (ICMSA) has expanded its geographic footprint and opened an office in Christchurch, New Zealand. Karen Hamilton, who has been working in the New Zealand business events sector for the past 16 years, has assumed the new role of Director New Zealand.
