Think Business Events goes virtual for first two major conferences of the year

Professional event organiser Think Business Events’ first two major events of the calendar year have switched from hybrid to virtual as Omicron continues to impact the business events industry.

The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists Annual Scientific Congress and the Australian Institute of Project Managers’ National Conference, slated to proceed late February in Brisbane and the Gold Coast, respectively, will now go ahead online.

“The health and safety of all those involved in our conferences is of the utmost importance, and although this decision was not an easy one to make, we are confident that our recent experience managing and executing virtual events puts us in the best position possible to continue delivering high quality content and value for delegates, whether it be in-person or online,” said Denise Broeren, director at Think Business Events.

Although all parties involved in both events were hoping to move forward in 2022 with in-person or hybrid events, virtual events have a number of positive aspects that the team at Think Business Events will continue to focus on.

Features such as on-demand video content and the ability to offer a full program and engagement opportunities to a wider pool of delegates, both around Australia and internationally are now an “always-on” part of the offering.
