AGCSA Conference review 2016 #32ATC
Well what a week it was. I write this over a week after as many who were there needed a week to recover as there was so much to learn and see.
I’ll let you read through the AGCSA review of the event with speakers etc but just to say there was good feedback all round.
Read the AGCSA review here.
Numbers were very good this year with the following:
- 480 registered delegates
- 58 trade companies (remember the venue was smaller than previous Melbourne conference)
- 850 trade only registrations so total of over 1500 for the show itself (including all in attendance)
The dinner was a great success and I have uploaded a video of some of the award winners on the night.
I gave my talk on Tuesday afternoon on building your profile using social media- there was a slight change to the program so if anyone missed out I would be more than happy for you to contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org
I really enjoyed giving this talk this year. Personally it went better than I thought as to be honest I did not practice as much as I had hoped to. The feedback from the audience was great. thank you for coming up to me later on in the week and letting me know you enjoyed it. I look forward to bringing you more talks in the future and if anyone would like me to do a talk for your facility or association please contact me.
I do have my slides available as promised. Please click on this link
I really encourage everyone to look at their profile online and seeing how using social media can help. It has already helped me personally but also within our company.
The Trade Show
Crown was a great complex. Having everything all together in one place was perfect. Traffic through the show was consistent. If you passed by our stand as many did I hoped you enjoyed the experience. We were showcasing our updated product catalogue and some information on Monstar and controlling fairy ring more effectively.as well as showcasing Pig Dog our pigment machinery cleaner and Blazon the non staining spray indicator). For information on these products feel free to download the information here via dropbox.
As well we ran a competition again this year, this years winner were:
- Royal Book – Greg Marshall
- Power Bank Charger (small) – Stephen Pellet
- Power Bank Charger (Large) Chris Deppeler
Thanks you for all those who entered.
We also hosted the first ever tweetup.as mentioned in a previous post. the aim was to get anyone who uses social media to meetup in person. Thanks for all those that turned up. here are a few pics from the event and the show in general.
Lastly thank you to the AGCSA you put on a great show well done.
Next years conference heads back to popular QLD at Twin Waters Resort for #33ATC
