Over the past 30-years more than 600 Australasian organisations have partnered with Conference Design to deliver effective, efficient, creative, and professional business events.

We specialise in the production and delivery of state, national and international business events for associations and professional organisations seeking to enhance their meetings through a strong and effective partnership.

Since 1990, directors Ben Thiessen and Penny Archer have led a team of experienced conference managers and specialists in IT, financial management, marketing and logistics to build an unrivalled organisation dedicated to creating stand-out conferences in all formats.

Comprising eighteen full-time staff including six conference managers and a network of enduring relationships with external suppliers and service providers, Conference Design is large enough to be fully resourced but small enough to provide you with an unmatched, personalised service.

Meeting the Challenge of COVID 19

The sudden impact of COVID-19 around the world has forced people and communities apart but it has also highlighted how well-managed online platforms can bring people together, like never before.

At Conference Design we’re developing exciting new options, integrating fully digital and hybrid conferencing into our client’s events for 2021 and beyond.

Our focus is on the Big Picture  

As one of Australasia’s leading specialist conference management groups, we understand the unique pressures and dynamics facing today’s professional organisations and associations.

Identifying and engaging with members and industry stakeholders, and developing major events which connect, educate, and encourage growth.  These initiatives produce long-term, sustainable return on investment and are critically important to the longevity of your organisation; they shouldn’t be ignored, nor left to chance.

That’s where we come in.

Conference Design has over 30-years experience providing the management services integral to hosting a successful conference and the value of this for your future events cannot be overstated.

We specialise in the production and delivery of state, national and international business events for associations and professional organisations seeking to develop their conferences through a strong and effective partnership.
