Summit To Be Held In July 2012

Hosted by the Australian Centre for Event Management (ACEM), the International Event Management Summit will be held in Sydney in July 2012.

“The Summit will provide essential information and resources for anyone involved in event planning, from government representatives to conference organisers and major event producers,” said Rob Harris, Director of ACEM.

The 2012 Summit incorporates the sixth International Event Management Research Conference and the fourth Event Education and Research Network Australasia Symposium.

The last International Event Management Summit was held in July 2009 and addressed the theme ‘Meeting the Challenge of Sustainable Development’, particularly the increasing public pressure on events to address their environmental impacts.

“In 2012, delegates can look forward to networking with a diverse range of international and local speakers, learning through an impressive selection of case studies, panel discussions and workshops,” said Harris.

“The Summit will also involve specifically themed sessions addressing a number of topics including community engagement and events; education for sustainable development through events; events and urban renewal; event marketing; public policy and regional development through events.”

Further details regarding the date, place and theme of the summit will be announced later in the year.
