We were delighted to be on hand this week to photograph the Inland Rail Conference in Albury-Wodonga and catch up with some familiar faces that we haven’t seen in a while.
Commencing with a familiarisation tour of nearby distribution centres and intermodal hubs the afternoon was followed by the popular welcome reception on the Victorian side of the border in Wodogna. This reception gave guests the perfect opportunity to sample many of the local craft beers, produce and warm hospitality which the region is rightly famous for.
The main conference and conference dinner was held on the NSW side of the border at the Albury Entertainment Centre located on Swift Street and featured industry big-hitters speakers from across Australia, including companies such as Pacific National, John Holland, ARTC, Deloitte, Martinus Rail, Interlink, CSIRO, Linfox and Commonwealth Government.
With Inland Rail works already under way in several areas, this has been an interesting project to follow and we look forward to photographing the next conference somewhere along the route between Melbourne, Albury-Wodonga, Parkes, Moree & Brisbane.
Our first large conference photography booking after lockdown in Melbourne was at Crown Conference Centre and it provided a glimpse of how conferences are going to look in the post-Covid world.
Obviously social distancing, hand sanitising, temperature checks and mask wearing when required were all actively encouraged and used at different times during the conference, but the most noticeable aspects of what conferences might look like in the future were the participants.
Several speakers and panel discussion participants joined the event remotely and were able to not only deliver their presentations, but also able to participate in Q&A with other panelists and audience members.
With the whole event live streamed to delegates who were unable to make it due to travel restrictions or health reasons as well as a medium sized crowd in the exhibition and conference space, it really did feel like normal(ish) times again.
With the calendar starting to fill up for the remainder of the year, we’re looking forward to getting out and photographing more large events, conferences and expos. Do feel free to get in touch to discuss your next event.
It was our pleasure, once again, to be photographing the ALC & ATA Supply Chain Safety Summit for 2019. Following last year’s successful event in Melbourne, it was Sydney’s turn to host the annual event, with the Sydney Hilton being the venue of choice. The Hilton’s central location is convenient for delegates and conference photographers alike!
With speakers from across Australia, including representatives from Toll, Woolworths and other major organisations, as well as Senator Glenn Sterle and NSW Minister Hon Paul Toole MP and outback lifesaver Robyn Neilson, it was an information packed and productive 2 day conference which should create some positive changes within the supply chains of Australia.
We look forward to seeing you in Melbourne for next year’s event.
We were delighted to be able to photograph the Activity Based Funding Conference at the Melbourne Conference and Exhibition Centre earlier in the month.
Spread over three days at the MCEC, the conference attracted delegates and speakers from around Australia, as well as many international guests. Speakers included Dr Linc Turecht, Dr Sarah Neville, Prof. Amanda Walker, Prof. Philip Burgess, Prof. Christine Bennett, Prof. Andrew Street and Dr Jason Sutherland
Social events included cocktails at the Melbourne Aquarium and a gala dinner at the Cargo Hall on Southbank.
We were pleased to welcome the Australian Logistics Council back to Melbourne recently for their Supply Chain Safety Summit, held at the Melbourne Park Function Centre. ( In case you’re wondering where this venue is, it’s basically the Tennis Centre on Batman Avenue, Melbourne).
Two days of high level discussion on the importance of safety and how to improve it within the logistics industry, with speakers from the UK, US and around Australia.
We heard from Victoria Police, truck drivers, policy advisers, health and safety experts from the UK and some of the regular faces from other Australian conferences that involve and interest the freight and trucking industry.
We look forward to seeing the team again to shoot the photography at their annual conference at the Royal Randwick Racecourse in Sydney.
As long term collaborators with the Australian Logistics Council, we were pleased, once again to be selected as the photographers for their annual conference.
The 2018 Forum was held at Royal Randwick Racecourse in Sydney (the annual conference alternates between Melbourne & Sydney) which offers expansive rooms suitable for large exhibitions and conferences.
Catering on site is always excellent and the venue offers views out over the racecourse and of the city skyline in the opposite direction.
As in previous years, the conference featured numerous big names from the retail and logistics industry and top level of government, including the Deputy Prime Minister Hon Michael McCormack and deputy leader of the oppostion Hon Anthony Albanese.
We look forward to seeing you at next year’s conference at the MCG in Melbourne!
The David Bowie is exhibition opened at ACMI in Melbourne two weeks ago and we have now had several clients hosting corporate functions there.
From what we saw of the exhibit really impressed us, with loads of handwritten lyrics, costumes and photos from his private collection.
We’re definitely going to be taking an afternoon off very soon to return and enjoy it without cameras around our necks!
