I just wanted to pass on some feedback about how amazing Leanne is. I honestly wouldn’t have survived the APSA 2018 conference without her, she is an absolute superstar and she is brilliant at her job (not to mention completely unflappable and has the patience of a saint!). It has been an absolute pleasure working with everyone at Expert Events.
Dr Lisa Kalisch
APSA 2018 Conference Co-chair
Dear Leanne, thanks again for all your support at the conference. I honestly couldn’t have done it without you. You were invaluable to us as an organisation (again!) and to me personally as the principal organiser. Your attention to detail and ability to always think one step ahead (and probably many steps ahead that I wasn’t even aware of) ensured we had a smooth running event with no major organisational issues that I can think of. Well done, it was a joy to work with you.
National Conference Director, Australian Technical Analysts Association (ATAA 2018)
Expert Events went above and beyond to make our conference a success. The team were always incredibly flexible in the face of a challenge and took full ownership of the conference. Our delegates gave enormous praise to the organisation of the event. Their attention to detail and expertise delivered an overwhelmingly successful conference and a budget in surplus.
Organising Committee, 2017 International Tropical Agriculture Conference
I had dinner with some Swedes and Dutch last night and they did not stop commenting about how magnificent, professional and timely Leanne and Steph were. They said emails were sent out in a timely manner and enough reminders, but not too much, any changes to accommodation and extra dinners were dealt with like there was not a problem in the world… I cannot thank you enough for making the experience so smooth and seamless for the delegates.
Dr Joe Nicolazzo
Chair, 12th International Conference on Cerebral Vascular Biology (CVB 2017)
We have heard so many compliments on the organisation of the Realist Conference and how you set it up and interacted with people. We pass on your company name wherever we can and would certainly be happy to contribute if you ever want lists of (very) satisfied customers recommending your services.
Dr Gill Westhorp
Co-chair, 2017 International Conference for Realist Research, Evaluation and Synthesis
Your management of the lead-up to the meeting and handling of the delegates’ payments, and your system’s ability to provide timely reports was invaluable to me. I will be happy to recommend you to any of my colleagues planning a similar meeting in the future.
Dr James Auld
Chair, Australian Society of Hypnosis 2017 Congress
Just a note to say a most sincere thank you for all that you did yesterday and in the twelve months leading up to yesterday to make the day such a success. Everything that you do is always so meticulous, and I love that you have such high standards. And one of the nicest things is that i don’t have to worry about you and whether you will get it right – I just know that you will. And always with a smile. Thank you so much. I thought it was a great day from all perspectives so it was wonderful that all our hard work paid off. The evaluations thus far are looking very positive.
Dr Janet Reynolds
Convenor, Home Economics Institute of Australia (Qld division) 2017 State Conference
Thank you to you and your team, especially Stephanie, in setting up and the managing the payments and registration for the DATTA Qld 2017 conference.

Another fantastic event organised by Expert Events at our ASCEPT-BPS conference in Hong Kong. The ability of Expert Events to assist with planning, logistics and delivery of the conference was as usual outstanding. The Expert Events team are second to none!
Prof Carl Kirkpatrick
Co-convenor, ASCEPT-BPS Joint Scientific Meeting 2015
I expected a greater deficit, and of course, the better than expected outcome is due primarily to the fantastic management of the budget by Expert Events. Many thanks.
Prof Dom Geraghty
University of Tasmania
We all enjoyed working with you for this meeting, as has been the case for other meetings as well. The bottom line ended up much better than we expected months before the meeting. We are all very grateful.
Assoc Prof Peter Molenaar
On behalf of the Australian Foundry Institute Queensland Division I would like to thank you for your exemplary personal contribution in managing and coordinating our 50th AFI Convention at Sanctuary Cove Resort 2014. From the beginning to the end, the planning of this event was a credit to Lidia and Leanne in their roles of leadership and support in their field of expertise. Working side by side with our people, listening and adding a dash of professionalism to our ideas, which enabled us to work as a team but allowed for tweeking and moulding of what might have been an ordinary idea to a better idea. With warmth and genuineness and a desire that everyone attending our Conference would leave with great memories, we thank you once again for your effort.
Australian Foundry Institute Queensland Division
Again, many thanks for all your assistance with the planning in the lead up to our conference last weekend, and over the weekend. From my point of view, it was really good to have you on board to look after a lot of the little detail that had distracted us volunteers at past events. This took a reasonable burden away from us volunteers, leaving us with more time to focus on other things, and spend more time in the conference proceedings proper. I would certainly look forward to EE helping us again at future events.
Director, Australian Technical Analysts Association
Thank you for yet another stellar job on NMS. Your humour, flexibility, amazing organisational skills and can-do approach makes this difficult project so much more bearable!

On behalf of the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, I am delighted to provide this testimonial for Lidia Dalton of Expert Events having shared in the success of many conferences and meetings she has conducted over the past 10 years. Her professionalism and commitment to her clients’ events is evident from the planning stages, on-site, right through to the conclusion of the event. Importantly, she provides us with an extremely detailed and accurate pre-event briefing which enables our team to provide the highest standard of service to delegates. We always look forward to welcoming Lidia and her team back. Her vision, knowledge and experience ensure we work successfully together to deliver a seamless experience to our clients.
Director of Sales, Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre
Many thanks for making the ASCEPT-APSA 2012 Conference such a resounding success. Taking on the role of Chair on the Scientific Advisory Committee of ASCEPT for the next few years appears a lot less onerous knowing that Expert Events are on board.
The Australasian Society of Clinical and Experimental Pharmacologists and Toxicologists (ASCEPT)
Congratulations and thank you for organising a fantastic conference. It was a great turn out with a spectacular science and social program.
Thank you for all of your hard work on the ASCEPT-APSA 2012 Conference. The meeting was a clear success, and your support, both before the meeting and during, was of the highest standard.
The University of Queensland
How can I thank you both enough for the brilliant work that you have done to make our conference a success. It just wouldn’t happen without you! I am in absolute awe of your incredible management and organisational skills, your interpersonal skills, your patience and your diplomacy and your friendliness. Apart from managing the four of us, the way you interacted and dealt with about 350 delegates was amazing. Even under constant pressure, you are always calm and helpful and know exactly what you are doing, A number of speakers have commented how great you were over the weekend. On behalf of Team Friday, thank you so much.

I found your abstract reviewing system easy to use and the process quite straightforward. The online reviewing tool was much less frustrating than tools I’ve used for other review processes – no technical glitches at all from my end!
Consumers Health Forum of Australia
What a fantastic system update. I’m so impressed, just did my membership and it was so easy. Well done!

The efficiency, experience and knowledge, attention to detail, and personal manner of the staff at Expert Events ensures that our conference preparation and the event itself is a stress free and satisfying experience. A section of our evaluation forms asks for feedback from delegates related to a number of organisational and on-site aspects. Expert Events was “a hit”.
As Conference Convenor, it is invaluable to have no anxiety in the preparation and conduct of the conference thus enabling me to relax, interact with delegates, participate in and enjoy the conference knowing in all confidence that the event will be running smoothly.
Former Executive Officer

Just a quick email to congratulate you on your wonderful work at the recent conference. Your expert organisation made life for conference attendees, presenters and performers a breeze. The support, documentation and information I required for my various roles during the conference were faultless.
Congratulations to you and your team.
All Saints Anglican School
We have had nothing but praise from attendees, thank you for working so hard to make it such a fantastic experience.
National Prescribing Service Limited
The onsite registration desk staff were very helpful and friendly. A great team of people.
I have worked with Lidia Dalton as professional conference organiser on two major international conferences in the past five years and I can say without reservation that she was a key factor in the success of both events.
As Scientific Program Chair for one event, and Conference Chair for another, Lidia supported me in those roles, kept me informed of progress on a regular basis and shouldered a range of duties associated with hiring and using the venue, facilitated the process for developing the keynotes and main speaker program and organised the design and production of the Conference Program, managed the budget and arranged accommodation and recreation packages for delegates.
Thanks to her and her team the events themselves went smoothly and were well-received by delegates and speakers alike. Chairing a Conference can be a time-consuming task and Lidia made the development process work smoothly and effectively. She’s a pleasure to work with and her personable yet task-focused approach led to the positive resolution of the myriad of issues and problems that arise in planning and running an event.
I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Lidia and Expert Events, she’s an asset for any conference.
