Detailed planning is everything

One year in the making and it is all over in 4 days. But when you are putting an event together for 4,500 delegates with so many elements including registration, merchandise, production, logistics, keynote presentations and party, just to name a few, I truly believe it all comes down to the detail in the planning and the collaboration between the client with the entire Veritas team. The ability to work as a team and deliver what is truly a remarkable event with fantastic results is what makes event management such a rewarding job.

Son Doong, Vietnam

Unknown Event managersandevent plannersare excited for the opening of Son Doong in Vietnam. Son Doong was only discovered in 2009 and is large enough to have a 40 level high-rise building in it. This cave adventure will be a wonderful experience forincentive groups. With a glide down a rope to enter, a 4km walk, a row in a boat and then a climb up a rope this experience is not for everyone, however for an active incentive groupthis is an experience they will never forget! When it comes toconferenceandmeetingdestinations and facilities, we are always excited to find out about new and/or refurbishedvenues.

Why I love Veritas!

After 7 years at Veritas Events today is my last day as a full time employee, I am moving back home to Adelaide to be closer to my family and whilst I am extremely sad to leave, I am so very proud and pleased to still be part of the Veritas Team on a contract basis. It seems like only yesterday that I had left my hotel job for the life of event management and to be honest I have not looked back. Since joining the team at Veritas Events I have been involved in many corporate events, gala dinners, incentive programs and product launches which have seen me work not only in beautiful Sydney but in fabulous places such as Greece, Spain, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Port Douglas, Hayman and many more destinations. The fabulous thing about my job is the variety of work and the clients I get to deal with; everyday is different and each job is unique with its own set of challenges. As a project manager I am very lucky to be involved with all aspects of an event from the initial concept stage through to the operations of the event onsite (which is my favourite part as well as the travel!). I am extremely proud to be part of the Veritas Events team and I truly hope we have the opportunity to create an experience for you. At Veritas we know our stuff when it comes to conference and meeting destinations and facilities. We are always excited to find out about new and/or refurbished venues. For any information about your next conference, incentive, product launch or board meeting or further abroad do not hesitate to get in touch. Contact Kieran on Kieran.kennedy@veritas.com.au or call him on 02 8908 5600.
