The Power of Conferences

Our latest research explores the long-term impacts of conferences through the stories of 10 prominent Australians

From finding a solution to the global AIDS epidemic, through to transforming opportunities and outcomes for Indigenous communities, conferences have played a vital role in some of the most significant medical, scientific and social breakthroughs of the last 50 years. 

In our latest research collaboration with the University of Technology Sydney, we hear from the people behind the breakthroughs, and find out exactly how conferences have contributed to the achievements for which they are best known.  These individuals have helped to change the face of health, science and society, and each one has used conferences in some way to do that. 

'The Power of Conferences: stories of serendipity, innovation and driving social change' includes stories of inspiration and life-changing discoveries that clearly demonstrate the real power of international business events.
