About Us

Creative Conferences & Events has been delivering events that leave a lasting impression since 1997.

We have sound and detailed knowledge of all the major facilities and services available to provide the backdrop to a successful and memorable event.

Our background and passion for what we do ensures attention to detail and guarantees nothing is left to chance. Our philosophy is to design an event that will not only meet your requirements but exceed your every expectation.

We invite you to take a look at our Portfolio and see some of the great events we have created.

Environmental Policy

At Creative Conferences & Events we look at ways to work towards improving our own Green Policy and encourage our business partners to do the same.  We cherish the natural environment and are concerned about man’s impact on it.

Our philosophy is to make our actions sustainable by using less of everything now so that it lasts longer.  We prefer to choose products & suppliers that have less of an impact on the planet.

We offer suggestions that assist our clients in reducing the carbon footprint of their events.

Green policy within our business environment

Internally we are almost totally paperless, requesting soft copy material from our suppliers and business partners, filing these electronically (remotely).  Where this is not possible, we use recycled paper, double sided printers, photocopiers, scanners and other minimal impact office equipment.  We practice both internally & at events to:

  • REDUCE  waste altogether
  • REUSE  waste where possible
  • RECYCLE waste where it cannot be reduced or reused.

Events that support a Green Policy

An event Green Checklist has been created by Tourism Australia with the assistance of   the Australian Conservation Foundation and the NSW Department of Environment & Climate Change to guide players in the meetings industry.

Working with our clients we go through the Green Checklist, and identify ways we can reduce the carbon footprint whilst still meeting and delivering the client & event objectives.

We think it’s important to remember that its not all or nothing & every incremental change helps.  If you google “Green Calculator” you can calculate everything from water, to food,  to cars, for you instantly.

Opportunities to make environmental & cost savings exist everywhere in event management, particularly in the areas of:

  • Water
  • Energy
  • Air
  • Waste
  • Transport
  • Procurement
  • Printed Materials/Electronic communications

At Creative Conferences & Events we acknowledge that events can consume enormous amounts of skill and expertise so its important to identify & work with suppliers who share the same environmental philosophy.

Events that support the community

Holding an event can create a wonderful opportunity to help the community. Not only is it important for companies to demonstrate their social conscience, it also makes good business sense.  Where possible Creative Conferences & Events prefers to use local suppliers and make suggestions in the agenda, that incorporate, in a fun way, support for local community projects.  It can be a very bonding experience for all stakeholders who benefit on many levels.
