NEW Zealand con­ven­tion and event or­gan­iser The Con­fer­ence Com­pany is this month open­ing its first ded­i­cated off-shore of­fice in Syd­ney.

The Castlereagh Street of­fice in the city’s CBD will be headed up by Asia Pa­cific man­ager Stephen No­ble and is a ma­jor in­vest­ment for the com­pany.

Man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of The Con­fer­ence Com­pany Jan Tonkin said in­vest­ing in Syd­ney bricks and mor­tar was a “log­i­cal next step as we con­tinue to de­velop our in­ter­na­tional con­nec­tions”.

“We are presently ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a strong growth phase fol­low­ing the an­nounce­ment of Auck­land’s In­ter­na­tional Con­ven­tion Cen­tre, which has put New Zealand on the global con­fer­ence map, and the in­vest­ment in Aus­tralia rep­re­sents a ma­jor push for new re­gional and in­ter­na­tional busi­ness,” she said.

The com­pany, which is an ac­cred­ited In­ter­na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Pro­fes­sional Congress Or­gan­is­ers mem­ber, has been op­er­at­ing in Aus­tralia for the past nine years, how­ever this marks its first phys­i­cal pres­ence down un­der.

This new Aus­tralian pres­ence is ex­pected to open up more Aus­tralian, Asia-Pa­cific and other in­ter­na­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties.
