Originally used as museums, education centres or galleries, the spaces are always large in order to cater to a huge number of foot traffic. The multiple purpose use of exhibition spaces makes for an interesting conference as you can usually organise a tour or special event to enhance your conference. For some venues you can even host your event surrounded by the art of world famous painters or prehistoric animals.
Technology can play a vital role in whether or not your conference or event is a success and the options are infinite. Having an app that interacts with your delegates, huge technological displays of lights and sounds, and large video screens are some of the options you can implement. All exhibition and convention centres in Australia also have a tech team that is able to help even the most amateurish tech user.
With many more benefits including onsite catering, there is no reason not to host your next event, whether it be large or small in one of your neighbourhood spaces.

Book review by Katarina Cobain
The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy: Or the letter that was never sent to Harold Fry
One of our clients a couple of months back mentioned that they read the Pilgrimage of Harold Fry and that they enjoyed the second book much more. That's how I found out that Rachel Joyce had written another book but about Queenie and her life.
As is always the case, the Queenie that I imagined in my head during Harold's story was nothing like the Queenie portrayed in her story. This is a beautiful book and I think a little bit better developed from the first one. Maybe because of the first book and established story it was easier to get into the depths of Queenie and her life. I liked learning about her, how she lived secluded in her own world, never settling properly and in the end getting so sick that she spends her days in the hospital surrounded by fellow sick and old. This book is more about the hospice and life of the people within it, both nurses and nursed.
One of the reviews online put it nicely:
"Told in simple, emotionally-honest prose, with a mischievous bite, this is a novel about the journey we all must take to learn who we are; it is about loving and letting go. And most of all it is about finding joy in unexpected places and at times we least expect." Read the full review here.
I like the slow pace of this book, the thoughts it entails.
We are always in someone's head. I will not give it away but the ending is beautiful. I loved this book as much as the other, maybe even more.
