The Professional Conference Organisers Association has announced Yvonne Adele will be MC for their annual conference, to be held in the new extension to the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre between December 9 and 11.
PCOA president Barry Neame said engaging Yvonne was a milestone for the association – ‘it’s the first time we’ve had a female MC for a PCOA conference’.
“Yvonne previously has worked with us as a program speaker at the 2016 conference.
“The very positive feedback on her dynamic contribution to the conference made her a popular choice with our conference committee this year.”
Yvonne said she was confident her diverse experience as an MC combined with her deep passion for the conference industry would bring a new dimension to the 2018 conference.
“For 11 years, the PCOA conferences are recognised and respected in the events industry. I am thrilled to be involved and look forward to working with the speakers to deliver the conference theme, ‘Embracing Change: How Agile Are You’.
This year’s theme is a proactive call to all meeting planners to seek out fresh perspectives and try something new. The program will encompass the many facets needed by meeting planners in 2018 and beyond.
