The Event Summit 2018 wants delegates to ‘dream big’
April 3, 2018

The Event Summit is looking to help its delegates ‘dream big’ this year when the thought-leadership conference is staged at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney on Thursday 14th June.

Bringing together professionals from the event industry, this year’s Summit will focus on giving attendees a practical insight into the essentials of delivering a successful event at best practice level.

For the first time, this Summit will bring together a huge range of high calibre speakers who will explore increasingly important topics and issues affecting the event sector.

The program features an exciting line-up of industry professionals with experience managing the Superbowl, Melbourne Cup Birdcage, Splendour in the Grass, Australian Open, Commonwealth Games, Surf Life Saving Australia National Championships, Taste Festival, American Express Open Air Cinemas, Vivid, The Royal Easter Show, X-Games and more.

The impressive line-up of speakers includes: Tennis Australia Chief Executive, Craig Tilley; Destination NSW Chief Executive, Sandra Chipchase; Frank Supovitz, former Vice President Events NFL, Producer of 9 Super Bowls and Chief Executive of Fast Traffic Events and Entertainment; Westpac Helicopters Chief Executive, Stephen Leahy; Sold Out Events Chief Executive, Thomas Staunton; and IMG Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Jason Fielding.

Through presentations and sessions, speakers will dissect real life scenarios and explore a broad raft of topics to empower event professionals. Attendees will learn how to grow their business and organisations, understand how to confidently take risks without infringing on creativity, and recognize how to identify opportunities and challenges in the event sector.

Looking forward to the event, Supovitz explains "I'm incredibly impressed with the agenda; this is the best, timeliest and substantive event management conference agenda I have seen, and I’m excited to be participating.”.

The Event Summit, presented by Destination NSW as part of Vivid Ideas Exchange 2018, and in partnership with Property NSW, OzTix, Sydney Showground, Australasian Leisure Management, University of Sydney, Risk Management Institute of Australia, Sold Out Events, McKenzie Ross, Premium Media & Risk Facilitator, aims to advance NSW’s event economy through enabling event professionals to exceed best practice in the planning, management and execution of events.

Registration for tickets is limited at 200 capacity and can be purchased at Oztix.
