Rotary District Conference
7-9 March, 2014
Planning for the 2014 District 9800 Gold Coast Conference is moving ahead rapidly.
District governor, Ross Butterworth has selected Jupiter’s Gold Coast for this very exciting and fun conference scheduled over the weekend 7-9 March, 2014 after an interval of 16 years.
The conference committee, chaired by past president Paul Perrottet, have been very active in planning for the conference. John Blackman has again been secured as MC. There is an outstanding list of key note speakers being engaged, including Lieutenant General David Morrison, head of the Australian Army and Nigel Chamier, Chairman of the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games Committee.
In line with recent conference feedback, we will be engaging speakers to share great Rotary themes and important Rotary achievements as well as speakers focussing on Queensland.
Conference sessions, workshops and functions, as well as the Rotary marketplace, will be located in the conference centre at Jupiter’s, making everything very convenient. Hotel accommodation has been pre-booked at Jupiter’s as well as several apartment complexes within walking distance.
The conference will kick off on Friday evening with the “Hawaiian Nights” cocktail party and barbeque welcome beside Jupiter’s magnificent pool. The gala dinner will be held on Sunday evening in the Pavilion Ballroom. Saturday evening has been reserved for club dinners.
In 2014 we will be offering some new features and registration alternatives:
- Significant non-Rotarian partner discounts on the registration fee.
- A “first-time attendee” incentive registration fee.
- Free child minding, if required.
Air fares to both Brisbane and Coolangatta airports are very competitive and public transport options bring you right to the door. Many Rotarians have already booked their air travel to take advantage of the cheap flights currently available.
Early bird registrations will open on 1 September, 2013.The conference website will be continually updated with news and other announcements.
