International Conference Bids

Often we find that local associations or organisations have thought about bidding to bring an international conference to Australasian shores, but just aren't sure where to begin or who to contact. This is where the combined experience of our team can assist, with Tracey, Megan or Rachel readily available to hold your hand and guide you through the process of bidding for (and winning!) hosting rights for an international conference.

Bidding for an international conference is an exciting and challenging task. By joining forces with Conference Innovators, we are able to provide you with the expertise and support needed for you to maximise the chances of your association or organisation winning the bid to host your next available international conference in Australasia. Through experience we know what international associations look for when selecting a host organisation and destination. We can put together a compelling logistical, financial and emotive case to back your bid.

Conference Innovators regularly supports Tourism New Zealand in the preparation of its bids, providing specialist advisory, consultancy and financial advice. We assist clients of all convention bureaus on an honorary basis, providing advice, strategy, planning and preliminary budgeting for bid documents.
