“The secret recipe for a successful international conference bid is people with the knowledge, experience, determination, and good will to work together for the bid.
This is what I received from Canberra Convention Bureau; a team of professionals who supported me all the way with their network of connections, experience to get financial support, knowledge of the local environment, and positive attitude. They were in it to win it.”
Professor Hussein Abbass, Bid Leader for IEEE SSCI 2020
“The team at Canberra Convention Bureau is the first point of contact for us whenever we’re considering Canberra as a destination for a conference. We know we’ll always get the best information promptly, professionally and with a smile – which counts for a lot!
In such unprecedented times we have felt extremely supported by the CCB team and Canberra venues as we navigate the changes and uncertainties being thrust upon us and our clients by the global pandemic. We cannot thank the team enough for their patience and professionalism.”
Kate Smith, Conference Manager
“After a highly successful national convention in Canberra for 2013, feedback was extremely positive to host the 2021 event there once again.
Canberra Convention Bureau prepared a full proposal covering all aspects of our consideration and the bid was a standout option for us, so the location was quickly agreed.
Following this agreement, CCB has assisted with venue, delegate accommodation and social program options, connected us with Federal Government, among other contacts, and is assisting our path through COVID with, among other aspects, their Smart Badge technology.
We look forward to the 2021 Lions Australia National Convention in Canberra.”
Ken McLeish, Convention Chairman
