What our clients are saying...

Robyn Shakes
Managing Director, Med-El Hearing Implants

I have had the pleasure of working with Consec for many years at conferences involving the hearing industry and have found them to be at all times, professional, quick to respond, innovative and personable.

I truly cannot speak highly enough of this company and the team.

My relationship with Consec has been at times as a conference organiser, exhibitor and attendee. They have not disappointed on any of these fronts. Whether interacting with the team as an attendee or in the capacity of managing director of a large international medical device company, the individual services has been extraordinary. Their ability to diplomatically navigate the often conflicting requirements of organisers and exhibitors is impressive to watch.

Our company attends many conferences, large and small, and it is always a relieve to find Consec at the helm.

We were recently involved in two conferences that Consec were organising and took gold level sponsorship for both. This is largely due to our satisfaction with the conferences we have previously attended organised by Consec.

Professor Raymond Sacks
Convenor, Australian Society of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery Annual Scientific Meeting

I can only speak to the highest regard for Barry Neame and his team. Their time management skills were fantastic and he coordinated the entire National Conference and Trade Exhibition without much input from my Scientific Committee and me. He essentially was responsible for the entire budget and fiscal management service with assistance both in securing sponsorship and attending to the sponsor requirements. All conference registration, which included the main conference and four large satellite meetings were all done through Consec and his financial records were impeccable.

Barry was certainly the most approachable conference organizer I have ever had the pleasure of working with and our geographical distance between Sydney and Canberra had no impact on the ease with which the conference was organized.

Subsequent to our success with Barry, we have also utilised him for our annual Australasian Rhinologic Society meetings, which are held each year and again, he was found by our entire executive committee to be fantastic. We also employed his services for a third time in the running of the Australasian Society of Paediatric Otolaryngology meeting in Fiji.

Dr Mike Ryan
Conference Chair, MilCIS

For the past 12 years, Consec has provided a faultless management service, both in the preparation for the event as well as its conduct over three days. Their general management and financial management are both excellent, playing a very proactive part in rolling over exhibitors and sponsors between years, identifying new sponsorship and exhibition opportunities, as well as in the advertising for registrations in new markets. Their communications plan is extensive and is a significant contributor to the success of the conference.

Although the conference runs for three days, Consec manages some seven days of operation, from the build of the exhibition the exhibitors bumping out at the end. Their venue and logistics management is excellent, providing perfectly balanced interfaces among all parties, ensuring that all conference activities are coordinated and flow smoothly. There has never been, in any of the last 12 events, any issue related to printing, marketing, venue, catering, audio visual or exhibition build.

As well as managing venue and logistics, Consec staff provide excellent service throughout the conference, whether it is in a smooth registration service, coordination of conference services, or responding to any requests. They are friendly, efficient and effective—representing the conference perfectly.

In summary, Consec plays a large part in the success of MilCIS and its annual growth—I can unreservedly recommend them for any large event of a similar nature.

Christina Cook
Manager, National Fruit Fly Council

Pulling together an online national event in a short space of time is a very daunting proposition for anyone with limited experience in this area. The Consec team stepped in to our tight timeframes and provided a professional, friendly and responsive service which enabled us to deliver a high-quality and entertaining event while keeping our sanity intact! We have received many compliments on the quality of the online platform as well as the efficiency and competence of the supporting team who managed the presenters and technical components of our event. I would not hesitate to recommend Consec for online event management.

Jessica Keating
Project Manager, HeartKids Limited

HeartKids worked with Barry and the fabulous team at Consec to plan and execute the launch of a new set of medical standards of care at Parliament House. I was thoroughly impressed with their professionalism, creativity, and attention to detail.

Barry, Isobel and the team demonstrated exceptional organisational skills from the initial planning stages through the successful execution of the launch. They understood our goals and objectives, and they worked tirelessly, including through the Dec/Jan holidays to ensure that every aspect of the event was successful.

We had a tight timeline for turnaround during the planning process, but Consec maintained open and transparent communication, keeping us informed every step of the way with regular check in meetings and emails. Their responsiveness and willingness to adapt to changing circumstances were invaluable and greatly contributed to the overall success of the launch.

I highly recommend Barry and the team for anyone seeking a professional, personable and highly organised events team.
