2017 Annual ACCA Conference
15-18 October | PULLMAN ALBERT PARK
The 2017 Annual ACCA Conference took place at the splendid Pullman Albert Park, with magnificent views of Albert Park Lake and convenient access to Melbourne’s CBD, St Kilda, and nearby bustling beachside districts. Our line-up included leading speakers and presenters from the cemetery & crematoria sector and plenty of networking segments, all of which provided delegates with ample opportunity for discussion and growth.
TRADE EXHIBITION: Monday 16 and Tuesday 17 October
This year, the Trade Exhibition was launched on Monday and spanned across two full days where delegates had the opportunity to interact with exhibitors at their trade booths across all breaks throughout the conference. Expert Suppliers from the cemetery & crematoria sector were present to demonstrate and promote the very best products and services relating to cemeteries, crematoria, technology, grief & bereavement, memorialisation, innovation, equipment and much more. We were excited for delegates to meet our exhibitors in the Trade Exhibition on Monday and Tuesday and to see many of their products and services in action on Wednesday!
INTERACTIVE FIELD DAY: Wednesday 18 October
This year, this took place at Fawkner Memorial Park where delegates participated in group learning stations, demonstrations and interactions, taking place both indoor and outdoor. The day also included a presentation by GMCT CEO, Jacqui Weatherill which provided many discussion points. Melbourne weather provided a perfect backdrop and a fantastic lunch was generously provided by Celeste Catering, making it a memorable experience for all delegates.
