See our amazing feedback, provided by satisfied conference delegates, committee members, speakers and others!
Steve really knows his stuff. He helped us run a very successful conference with delegates from around the world.
Alan Hockings, Senior IT Manager, The University of Queensland, Centre for Advanced Imaging
In April 2016, I attended the inaugural Australian Vascular Access Society (AVAS) conference in Brisbane, managed by Anagram Events Australia. The conference was a resounding success, attended by over 250 healthcare professionals from around Australia and many international destinations.
I have been to numerous national and international conferences, and this was by far one of the best I’ve ever attended. The Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre provided an excellent venue, and the food was delicious and plentiful. A range of informative and engaging presentations from national and international keynote speakers and abstract presenters ensured a program both fresh and interesting. In between sessions, attendees had plenty of time for networking with colleagues, sharing ideas and enjoying the buzz of the event.
From initial registration to the conference app to the final closing session, the entire conference was extremely professional, and I would highly recommend Anagram Events Australia.
Thank you to Debra Krause and all of the conference organisers for a terrific event!
Conference Delegate and Speaker, AVAS ASM 2016
Anagram Events Australia were appointed as the Professional Conference Organiser for the Australian Vascular Access Society’s Inaugural Scientific Meeting 2016, providing us with a full suite of conference services including creating and managing the budget, sponsorship management, managing speaker logistics, delegate registration, venue management and conference website management.
Anagram Events Australia worked closely with the organising committee in ensuring the 1ST Scientific Meeting was an outstanding success. They were flexible in their approach, constantly going above and beyond in helping the organising committee achieve a meeting that surpassed all expectations. Challenges were faced head-on and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them.
The meeting itself ran like clock-work, reflecting the importance Anagram Events placed on attention to the finer details in the lead-up to the event.
Steven and Debra were approachable, friendly and easy to deal with. This was one of the best organised meetings I have attended, and as conference chair, I would have no hesitation in recommending Anagram Events Australia.
Evan Alexandrou, Conference Chair, AVAS ASM 2016
I met Steven as he was forming Anagram Events and our University Software Licensing Community was one of his first clients. We had no idea how to run a conference and we were hoping to attract colleagues from all over Australia and New Zealand. That was 5 years ago and we are still working with Steven to plan our 5th conference. Absolutely amazing.
Steven is a true professional and has the ability to work with clients, sponsors, delegates and presenters whilst ensuring the success of the event. His experience is essential to achieving a well-managed, on budget, and memorable conference.
Anagram provide registration solutions, accommodation and location management and has the experience to manage all requirements relating to event organisation.
I have no hesitation in recommending Steven and his team.
Mark Noonan, Conference Committee Member, CAUDIT Software Licensing and Asset Management Conference
We have used Anagram Events to assist with several national and international conferences over recent years. Their thoroughness and dedication to our events has ensured they run smoothly. Our attendees and organising committee members have been impressed with Anagram’s friendliness and attention to detail. We would certainly engage them again.
Andrew Brown, Professor of Digital Arts, Griffith University
We engaged Anagram Events for two conferences in late 2015, one of which involved more than a hundred participants, including quite a few from interstate. Anagram’s contribution was an important factor contributing to successful outcomes achieved for both events.
At that time, we needed an external party to manage registrations for us, including: receiving the registration fees; preparing information and name tags for the Registration Desk; and coordinating catering including placing orders, keeping track of special needs and generally liaising with the caterers. This allowed us to focus on the program and to ensure that we were able to respond to participants’ queries or do any problem-solving as it arose during the conferences.
I would recommend Steven and Debra at Anagram Events to anyone who is considering obtaining assistance or looking for someone to run their event. Their charges were reasonable, they were thorough, provided excellent service and were attentive to our needs and wishes.

I want to highlight the extraordinary customer service received from Steven Turner. My team has regularly provided comments to me describing Steven’s contributions as:
Customer-centric with all our stakeholders (sponsors, attendees, Queensland Branch Committee, Secretariat, speakers/panelists) proactively providing positive feedback.
Consistently delivering to a high standard of service with excellent outcomes linked to his systematic and reliable approach.
Commercially astute, delivering outcomes that steadily exceed operational targets without compromise to customer service and his overall reliable approach.
These are attributes which the Queensland Branch, secretariat and I place great value on.
Suzanne Campbell, former CEO, Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA)
I’ve had the pleasure of working closely with Steven Turner for a number of years, when I was on the committee of the Queensland branch of the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA). Steven planned and organised all of our events (including one which had over 1000 registrations). Nothing is ever too much trouble for Steven. He and his team were consistently excellent with their attention to detail and professionalism. I don’t ever hesitate to recommend Steven.
Steven Turner provides excellent customer service. I have worked with Steven for more than 10 years and always found him to be helpful and reliable in getting the job done. He is goal-focussed and strives for customer satisfaction.
