“The big attraction of Melbourne was not only the convention facilities which are excellent, the transport links which are very good but just the size of the city. It provides a good opportunity for delegates to move around and engage with each other, because that’s very valuable.”

– Gordon McInally, Rotary International

“When the audience makes a choice of where to host their conferences. We look at three things. The first is human rights records, with regards to HIV, we just cannot hold conference in a place where there is any level of discrimination against people living with HIV, which still happens in many parts of the world. The second thing they look at is the physical capability to host the conference, and Brisbane has a pretty impressive conference centre. And the third is the financial support provided by the host country and or city, which was very attractive from Brisbane in Australia.”

“In Sydney, if you have downtime, you can get out and really explore and see a lot - and not go that far to see it.”
