Brisbane hosts top association leaders

Stamford Plaza

The Brisbane Business Events team has welcomed more than 100 top association and not-for-profit leaders as the city played host to the Associations Forum’s CEO & Chair Symposium for the first time.

The exclusive 12th Annual CEO & Chair Symposium was held at the Stamford Plaza from 2-3 February for discussions on the latest issues and trends impacting the sector.

Brisbane Business Events General Manager Rob Nelson officially welcomed the full room of leaders to the city.

“Brisbane has a strong track record of hosting national and international association events so I’m thrilled that the Associations Forum chose Brisbane as the 2017 host city of its signature leadership symposium,” Mr Nelson said.

“Brisbane is well recognised as an Asia Pacific research and innovation hub where association members can access thought leaders and expand their knowledge.

“This symposium was an ideal opportunity for CEOs and leaders to experience Brisbane as a superior conference destination, and get a taste for the city’s expanding accommodation, dining and entertainment offerings.”

Associations Forum Managing Director John Peacock said he was pleased to bring the CEO & Chair Symposium to Brisbane for the first time. 

“Brisbane is very accessible by plane from around Australia and New Zealand, and the meeting facilities and accommodation options are first-rate,” Mr Peacock said.

“Choosing Brisbane gives attendees an excellent destination that combines professionalism, facilities and services with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.”
