Spanning three days in September, the Queensland Coastal Conference delegates were greeted with spectacular Whitsunday weather and a jam-packed conference program. Advocates from environmental organsations, government agencies, private industry and relevant industry stakeholders gathered to share information on the future of the coastal habitats, communities, and environments in Queensland.
Lure was abuzz with delegates for the three days using all available spaces for a series of lectures, seminars and interactive workshops. The opening presentations saw 120 seated theatre-style in the Quadrant Room/ Compass Bar with the following concurrent sessions divided between the Quadrant Room, Sandglass Room and a custom marquee on the foreshore. Such is the flexibility of the venue for staging conferences and business events, three concurrent sessions hosting 60 delegates each allowed the groups to break out into smaller numbers for a more focused workshop session.
Morning and afternoon tea and lunch were served on the foreshore under the shade of the palm trees with stunning views over the Whitsunday islands and Abell Point Marina. Sumptuous pastries and fruit platters, to a cold buffet breakfast the delegates were fed and watered in style as the conference progressed.
Day one saw a cocktail style reception for 150 hosted at the venue, with the conference party opting for an off-site dinner the second night to showcase the quality of the venues available in the Whitsundays. The transition from day to night was seamless with the hardworking team from Lure ensuring the guests were happy and the venue looked perfect.
Another successful business event for Lure and an opportunity to showcase our stunning marina setting to delegates who are passionate about the region and the environment. We hope to welcome them back again into the future.
