TAG Global Film & Media – Helping you make the most of SCREEN FOREVER
The Appointment Group (TAG) have been announced as the official travel partners for Australia’s major Film, TV and Media Conference, SCREEN FOREVER. To help you make the most of this important event, TAG are offering discounted flights through Virgin Australia along with special accommodation deals for conference delegates.
SCREEN FOREVER is presented by Screen Producers Australia (SPA) and held at the Crown Conference Centre in Melbourne, from November 20-22.
There is no doubt conferences can play an important part in the development of the global screen industry. They offer a unique forum for a cross-section of industry practitioners, professionals and businesses to network and be inspired. SCREEN FOREVER delivers one of the largest congregations in the Southern Hemisphere of content creators, producers, and screen industry practitioner and navigating it can be daunting.
TAG sat down with SPA’s Partnership and Events Director Carrie Ann Huddleston to ask what delegates should consider in order to get the most out of this year’s conference.
“SCREEN FOREVER attracts over 700 delegates both locally and internationally and provides not only inspiring and relevant panel sessions over the 2.5 days, but also amazing networking and business opportunities; so preparation is key for anyone attending the event,” Carrie Anne says.
“We are delighted to welcome The Appointment Group as the official travel Partner of SCREEN FOREVER,” she says. “The Appointment Group has excelled as an award-winning global independent event and corporate travel management company. We know that strong travel partnerships are vital in bringing the industry from all around Australia and the world together, to connect.”
TAG’s General Manager of Asia Pacific Film and Media, Alli Pratt, outlines how the company will provide support to delegates and speakers attending the event.
“Our role is to take the worry out of travelling to the conference, so delegates can make the most of their time on the ground,” Alli explains. “We know the huge opportunities events like these can create for delegates and we are excited to offer special discounted flights through Virgin Australia, available exclusively through TAG for SCREEN FOREVER delegates and on sale now for a limited time. In addition, we have secured heavily-reduced accommodation rates for a number of properties to suit any budget.”
Huddleston offers additional conference survival advice: “It is a rare chance to come together as an industry and get in front of people who are the decision makers. Those delegates looking to attend the event and meet new people should make sure they prepare, prepare, prepare and have their ideas and questions ready for any meetings they have. Be a listener, be a connector and take notes!”
Her final piece of advice? “Wear comfy shoes! Brad Taylor, our Licensing and Membership Manager walked 49,000 steps, 52 floors, 28.8 km over the three floors last year.”
