What a great 2023 it was in Adelaide

PCOA promised a thought-provoking program and it was DELIVERED.

Well done to the Professional Conference Organisers Association for an epic program - One that will continue to have impact for the next 10 years as Michael Pickford & Jakki Govan noted it their panel discussions 'The Power of Conferences'.

Kudos to the national program committee, PCOA Council, and staff for putting together a fantastic event at PCOA23!

See you at PCOA24!

PCOA 2023 done and dusted! It was an amazing few days filled with some amazing sessions, great discussions, connections with new clients, reconnections with familiar faces and some amazing events.

PCOA23 was simply fantastic. Congratulations on such an incredible event! Eventsair are grateful to partner with PCOA to contribute to the success of the event. We are also pleased to hear PCOA24 is in Brisbane. 

We look forward to attending. The Team at Eventsair

PCOA23 gave me a jolt of energy - feeling again like what I do matters, not just for me but on a much broader scale... Joining the community with the opportunity to collaborate, network and think outside the box - do things as they have never been done before. I look forward to taking it to the next level.

See you at PCOA24! Kat D.
