Hello :)

Since ive asked around and came to some dead ends i thought id ask here...

Im in the midst of organising a huge 40th birthday. Ive done everything except balloons.
I want helium ballons, but am only willing to pay up to about $50 for them.

Any ideas or suppliers i could go to?

Does anyone here work in the University scene at all? More specifically the Student Activities areas.
I'm just wondering the real effects of VSU on these areas.

Hi, I'm new here. I am not based in Australia, but I am organising a conference in Fremantle, Perth this year, and I'm looking for advise from natives!

Name: Claire
Job Title: Conference Organiser
State in Australia: Actually based in the UK - event is in Fremantle, Perth
Brief Description on the type of events or marketing you do: I organise academic conferences, primarily in the health and social care research field. Our events are often hosted locally, but can be national or international, hence why I'm here.
What you hope to get out of this community: I was hoping for some marketing advice.

Basically, I was wondering if anyone had any good advice for marketing my conference outside our usual fields. I've never organised a conference internationally before and so my usual avenues don't always apply. Is there any education press that I might be able to use? Any advice at all would be really helpful.

The conference is in June, so it's quite soon. We've exhausted most of our known avenues and I'm just looking to see what I might have missed. I'm always happy to return advice as I have a fair bit of experience organising conferences and evening functions.

Well I just pulled off a successful event in Sydney (I'm in Melbourne) without even leaving my desk.
It was a cruise with Captain Cook Cruises. They did a great job and THEY confirmed all the info with ME. I didn't have to chase them for anything.

Highly Recommended.
