Dr Andrew Stuchbery
Co-convenor, HFINQI Conference
It was a pleasure to work with Barry and the Consec team in organising our international conference on Hyperfine Interactions in Canberra in 2014. Consec has an extensive breadth and depth of experience in conference organisation in Canberra that was evident as they helped us choose the right venues and the right activities for the conference.
During the planning process, Consec kept us on schedule and on budget. The outcome was a successful conference that ran smoothly and was greatly enjoyed by all those who attended, both in the scientific and the social parts of the program.
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.
General Manager, Vorotek
Consec has managed numerous medical conferences both locally and overseas at which Vorotek has been an exhibitor and/or run workshops. Consec's understanding of the expectations of the Association/Organising Committee, delegates and exhibitor is second to none and makes the events that they run a success for all stakeholders.
Vorotek has found the Consec Team to have a positive friendly attitude and a willingness to "work with you" to achieve a better outcome. Our experience with Consec and the events that they run has been excellent and I would highly recommend there expertise.
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 Tony Coles
Cheif Executive Officer, Audiology Australia
On behalf of Audiology Australia, I would like to thank you and your staff for the years of professional service that you have provided to Audiology Australia to manage our biennial national conference. Your dedication to the task and your infectious enthusiasm in delivering our national conference was without reproach.
From the design concept for each national conference through to the hosting of the event, your team was professional in their approach to the job and you always consulted closely with the Conference Chair to deliver the required outcome on time and on budget. No detail was over-looked, and the conference was always delivered to a high standard.
I would not hesitate to recommend your services.
Business Manager Surgical Technologies, Medtronic Inc
Medtronic has participated in numerous medical device conferences over the past several years that Consec has managed, both locally in Australia and overseas.

AHISA has worked with the Consec team over a number of events now and can not fault the work they do. Their attention to detail is second to none and their timely service to our members and our internal team gives us a sense of confidence in their capability to deliver great events with us. They bring their wealth of expereince to everything they do and are always willing to share their expertise with you.
I would not hesitate to recommend them for any level of event management service you are looking for.
Execugifts has associated with Barry Neame and Consec - and Event Management for many years. During this time we have always found the Consec team to be very professional in all matters.
