New venues are always interesting and such was the recent experience of managing the Australian Transport Research Forum at the UNSW CBD Campus at 1 O’Connell. Located on the 6th floor, is a multi-room facility which ideally suited the 200 delegates with five breakouts held throughout all three days on two levels. Its unique areas for networking provided a wonderful opportunity for delegates to take an advantage of the long lunch breaks to engage on a personal level. It’s nice to be recognised, “Thank you so much for all your work on this conference. It has gone so smoothly and we couldn’t be happier” – Sherri, ATRF conference convenor.
