International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) is launching a new conversational webinar programme, ‘Events in Focus’, showcasing insights into the planning and delivery processes of digital events.
Brian Nash, ICC Sydney’s director of audio visual services, said: “We kick off the webinar series by introducing events delivered with a digital component. Through the webinar series, our team talks with event professionals, not only about the methods and strategies that they found useful in planning the digital execution, but also the typical pitfalls to avoid.”
Episode one introduced Eve Propper, events, sponsorship and foundation manager of 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 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 discuss Australia’s healthcare system and the response to managing the pandemic.
The second episode showcased Informa Connect’s general manager, Keith Barks and conference producer, Margaret Young, who shared their experience from the 18 virtual and hybrid events at ICC Sydney in the last 12 months.
These two episodes will be followed up, 23 September, with the third instalment in the series which 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 discuss the planning and delivery of the National Landcare Conference, which was live streamed to 3000 online viewers.
