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.
