Colour Outside the Lines with ISES Sydney

ISES Student ConferenceHad a great time last week covering the ISES Sydney emerging professionals event with around 120 students studying event management at TAFE and other colleges.

In line with the theme of the event it was held not in a regular meeting space, but in a nightclub – Marquee at The Star – very cool.

The line-up of speakers included prominent members from within the industry and a number from outside the industry – a nice balance and provided for a bigger perspective.

We introduced the delegates to the concept of the ultimate selfie and they had a lot of fun with it. Check them out here.

And a photo gallery from the event.

ISES Sydney sail the harbour

Southern Swan Skipper - James Parbery

Southern Swan Skipper – James Parbery welcomes guests on board

ISES Sydney members and guests had a great evening on Sydney Harbour on Tuesday night.

Our vessel was the Southern Swan. The barquentine ship first sailed into  Sydney Harbour on 26th January 1988 with the First Fleet Re-enactment and is the only ship from that fleet that remains in Sydney.

While most of the 95 passengers on board were content to take in the harbour view and the opportunity to get up close to the other tall ships and the warships from various navies that were in the harbour for the RAN centenary, for others the highlight was the opportunity to climb the rigging to the crows nest for an even more spectacular view.

and here is the photo gallery from the event – enjoy

Event industry knows how to party

Event industry knows how to party

We love our industry parties.

It is so nice to have a break from the corporate parties at this time of the year and get together with industry friends for our own parties.

In Sydney – MEA took to the Harbour with an exuberant party at Woolwich Dock.  I’ve done a few events at this relatively new venue and really enjoy going back to it.  A week later ISES also took the the water, at the Sydney Aquarium, starting off at the dugong pool then heading downstairs to the Reef Room.
