Creative Regions played an integral part in the success of the 2011 and 2013 regional arts and cultural conferences, respectively staged in Bundaberg and Rockhampton. Both events featured unique artistic programs developed by Creative Regions in close collaboration with local artists and communities. They demonstrated deep knowledge and understanding of, and connection to, both local communities, sourcing local produce and providers for the catering and contracting local artists to perform, present and showcase their wares to delegates. This provided authentically local experiences and lasting memories for conference attendees. Creative Regions’ logistical support and impeccable coordination were absolutely critical to the successful delivery of both events.
