Canberra as the associations meeting place
Posted 29 April 2019 4:40pm

Canberra has become a hub for national association meetings. In fact, the name Canberra is believed to have originated from a local Aboriginal word for ‘meeting place’. Because it is home to the Australian Government, policy makers and the national media, Canberra’s influence is recognised by decision-makers as the place to secure legacy outcomes for their associations. In the words of Canberra Convention Bureau’s CEO, Michael Matthews: “Canberra’s access to research leaders from academic and cultural institutions through the Bureau’s Research and Learning Institutes Group also adds immense value to business event content, with direct access to the brightest minds and research from Canberra’s academic and research communities”. The Canberra Convention Bureau is securing conferences from a broad range of sectors, ranging from 100 to 2,000 attendees from Australia, Asia-Pacific, Europe and the Americas. We are proud to host the Associations Forum National Conference at the National Convention Centre in July 2019. An anticipated 500+ association leaders and stakeholders are expected to converge on Canberra as the place for the association sector to be heard. The National Convention Centre has undergone impressive renovations since the Associations Forum National Conference was held there in 2014.
