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 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!
We shot another corporate function at Etihad Stadium at the start of the 2014 AFL season with plenty of the invited guests on this occasion getting to enjoy a cracker of a Friday night AFL game.
Here is a shot of the view from one of the main entertainment and function rooms.
It’s a very impressive venue with great sightlines right across the field. For such a large stadium it somehow retains a great atmosphere, especially when the footy is on! Heard enough about Etihad Stadium? How about reading about events at the MCG instead?
Since Melbourne is a sporting city, how about adding a dash of that into your next event by using one of the superb function rooms at the MCG?
The Melbourne Cricket Ground has numerous rooms available including the Olympic Room which is where this image was shot from.
In our next blog post we’ll offer some more suggestions for venues around Melbourne, including the huge Etihad Stadium.
It was a pleasure to photograph the inaugural Diversity & Inclusion Summit hosted by the Australian Logistics Council at the Pullman on the Park hotel in Melbourne recently.
Coinciding with White Ribbon Day, for the Elimination of Violence Against Women the summit covered a broad range of topics with the recurring theme throughout the day being the under representation of women in the logistics industry. Much ground was covered and the ALC are undertaking an action plan to tackle and raise awareness of various issues.
As well as plenty of high profile guest speakers including Kathryn Fagg, Reserve Bank of Australia board member, Brian Kruger of Toll, Gavin Fox-Smith of Johnson & Johnson and Heather Jones & Lyndal Denny of Pilbara Heavy Haulage Girls, delegates were also able to break into smaller groups for more informal discussion and workshop type sessions.
We look forward to seeing you all next year!
We were pleased to be able to provide photography services at the inaugural ALC Supply Chain Technology Summit at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre earlier this month. As with most conferences discussing technology, Blockchain was sure to get a mention!
As a self confessed tech nerd I find that Blockchain still confuses me a little so it was great to be able to listen the Blockchain session which featured Kee Wong of e-Centric Innovations, Aki Ohashi of PARC, Christopher Berg from the RMIT Blockchain Innovation Hub and Chris Zhong, Lead Cloud Architect at Microsoft.
Although I’m not a Blockchain expert, I’m definitely more up to speed with it than I was previously!
