Brisbane to host Associations Forum conference for second year

Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC) has secured the return of the Associations Forum annual national conference to the centre in July 2012.

The conference is Australia’s premier event for professionals working in the not-for-profit sector and until this year had previously only been held in Sydney and Melbourne.

Associations Forum general manager, John Peacock said they were delighted to be returning to Brisbane and the centre for the second year in succession. "We achieved our objectives for the conference, Brisbane put on an outstanding event and we are leveraging what is a very positive and productive collaborative partnership by returning next year."     

The centre worked closely with the support of industry partners, Brisbane Marketing and Events Queensland to confirm the back-to-back events for Brisbane. 

BCEC general manager, Bob O’Keeffe said he was very pleased that the centre was again selected to host one of the industry’s most important events. "This event brings to Brisbane the sharing of valuable knowledge and expertise of an influential and highly relevant group of professionals and significant business opportunities and initiatives for the city."
