The Professional Conference Organisers Association (PCOA) has announced its annual conference this year will be held in Hobart.
Last year’s PCOA conference was to be held in Hobart but reverted to an online platform due to the ongoing border closures.
“We are genuinely excited to have announced Tasmania as the destination for the 14th annual PCOA21 Conference & Exhibition,” said PCOA president Barry Neame.
“The timing couldn’t be better. The PCOA21 conference & exhibition will encompass PCO’s, in-house event managers, conference curators, and other meetings and event professionals, speakers and exhibitors.
“Attendees will not only enjoy Hobart’s legendary hospitality, they will get to experience some new and exciting products coming online.
“We are confident Business Events Tasmania have the capabilities to offer an experience never to be forgotten”.
Business Events Tasmania CEO Marnie Craig said they were excited by the opportunity to showcase Tasmania to so many PCOs.
“We’re confident that the conference will leave a lasting impression on delegates,” she said.
“Tasmania has an enviable brand and regularly features in top destinations to visit but we find that PCOs and in-house event planners are often surprised to find out that, not only can we host events of over 1,000 but we do it really well.
“We proudly boast that Hobart has the facilities and meeting infrastructure of a modern city but without the big city interruptions.”
PCOA21 will be held in Hobart from December 7-9.
