Over the past 30-years more than 500 Australasian organisations have partnered with Conference Design to deliver effective, efficient, creative, and professional business events.

We specialise in the production and delivery of state, national and international business events. Our clients are professional and scientific organisations seeking to enhance their meetings through a strong and effective partnership.

Since our establishment in 1990, directors Ben Thiessen and Penny Archer have built an unrivalled organisation dedicated to the production and implementation of conferences in all formats.

Our team, led by these two very hands-on directors, includes experienced conference managers, and specialists in IT, financial management, marketing and logistics.

A network of relationships with external suppliers and service providers, built over 30-years, supports our company’s impressive internal systems and capabilities.

Comprising twenty full-time staff including six conference managers, we are large enough to be fully resourced but small enough to provide you with personalised and flexible service.


The sudden impact of COVID-19 around the world has forced people and communities apart but it has also highlighted how well-managed online platforms can bring people together, like never before.

At Conference Design we’re developing exciting new options, integrating fully digital and hybrid conferencing into our client’s events for 2021 and beyond.
