International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) has launched ‘Events in Focus’ – a conversational webinar program with the first series of episodes showcasing insights into the planning and delivery processes of digital events.
Brian Nash, ICC Sydney’s Director of Audio Visual Services, said the first episodes focussed in on digital events through short sharp 30 minute conversations with conference organizers. The first one was with Eve Propper, Events, Sponsorship and Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia Foundation Manager at The Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia, who recently organised the first virtual Pathology Update conference at the venue.
Pathology Update was transformed from a hybrid format to 100% virtual in a matter of days due to heightened COVID-19 restrictions. In the comprehensive episode, it was revealed that by using the ICC Sydney Connect platform, more than 180 speakers, 1,200 medical professionals and 43 exhibitors convened to advance their professional development and education discussing the Australia’s healthcare system and response to managing the COVID-19 pandemic.
The second episode, showcased Informa Connect’s General Manager, Keith Barks and Conference Producer, Margaret Young, who shared their extensive experience from the 18 virtual and hybrid events at ICC Sydney in the last 12 months.
And coming up on 23 September, the third episode in the series will feature Melissa Higgins, Marketing and Communications Director at Landcare Australia and Lisa Cunningham, Senior Event Manager of Face to Face Event Management. The duo will reveal the planning and delivery of the National Landcare Conference, which was livestreamed to 3000 online viewers.
