Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Catholic Education Conference

“I would highly recommend Fame Events for conference coordination or events management that might come their way in the future.”

The Event

Brisbane Catholic Education is a learning community of all involved in diocesan Catholic schools and the staff of the Brisbane Catholic Education Office. With over 140 schools, Brisbane Catholic Education provides quality teaching and learning outcomes for Prep to Year 12 students.

This conference took place over three full days at Victoria Park in Brisbane. Delegates arrived from all over Australia to take part in the conference. It was a packed schedule with over 30 guest speakers and 18 workshops across the three days. Delegates were given the choice to attend four speaker events or workshops at any one time that took place in various rooms at Victoria Park.
