ROKC Conference 2017

Post by greg parker on Sat 07 Jan 2017, 11:38 pm

Looking at the viability of hosting a 2017 conference in Sydney. The criteria for it going ahead is simple. I will have to be convinced it can be run on a  cost neutral basis and we have to attract an overseas speaker or a well known local. 

An overseas speaker would need to pay their own expenses, but would be reimbursed some or all expenses from any surplus funds should there be any

I did learn some hard lessons from the 2015 event which will help keep costs down and help things run a bit more smoothly.

We would be looking at either the weekend of Nov 18-19 or Nov 25-26. 

For those from overseas who have always wanted to come to Australia - this would be a great time to come and escape the cold. As an added bonus, I will be looking mainly at venues close to the harbor and near such land marks as the Opera House.

They all push in-house facilities - some no doubt at inflated prices.

Have checked out specialist conference facilities.

The ICC is out of our league. the conference spaces are HUUUUGE.

There are others in Sydney - but one is on the northside and might be tricky to get to and the other, ypu have tp pay for a minimum of 150 people if you want to do it on the weekend. Minimum 20 through the week.

There is also the Vibe Hotel which might be okay

UPDATE #1

It looks like we have an IT person on board to help out.

We have also secured our first speaker - Greg Poulgrain. Greg will be in Indonesia in November but has kindly offered to do a pre-recrd for us.

He is the author of the Incubus of Intervention
https://kennedysandking.com/john-f-kennedy-reviews/poulgrain-greg-the-incubus-of-intervention




David Costello wrote:This engrossing narrative begins with three Dutchmen atop a mountain of gold in Netherlands New Guinea in 1936 and ends with the assassination of US president John F. Kennedy in November 1963. Brisbane-based academic Greg Poulgrain also takes readers through pre-war Constantinople and Paris to the Belgian Congo for the 1961 death of UN Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjold. His purpose is to build a string of evidence to accuse legendary US Director of Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Allen Dulles, of sabotaging third world leaders and others who threatened American strategic and commercial interests. In particular, he contends that Dulles, the brother of formidable Secretary of State, John Foster Dulles, worked tirelessly to destabilise the rule of Indonesia’s mercurial president Sukarno in the 1950s and 60s.

Spoiled for choice in Sydney. Lots of places. The live streaming just needs a good WiFi connection. Most of the CBD would have NBN and YouTube allows live streaming of an event. The function centre doesn't have to be involved. All you need is a high end smartphone really with a good camera and maybe a microphone. I'm not sure if I'll be in Sydney or NZ in November. I'm a 50% but if I am I'll put my hand up to get that sorted. I think that's important.

Paul, if you're here, we'll take all the help we can get. We already have a tech person on board, but from the Melbourne experience, more than one to help in that area would be a Godsend. I know FA about the technology needed or how it all works, but we want to stream in live speakers and maybe the mock trial, as well as stream out our event live.

I'll make sure they stock up on cider.

At the moment, the Novotel is the front runner (but am open to other suggestions.).. and from what I've read, their in-house AV people offer streaming services so they must have the right internet speed for it.

I am no tech wiz mate but my son showed me how easy it is. He has an iMac and does his thing on YouTube. It's not that complicated and it stays up forever. No need to reupload it. One of the latest smartphones will do the trick quite adequately but I'd need to stay off the ciders. That's the only technical glitch I can foresee. Smile

I appreciate your offer to help, Paul, but we have it covered. The IT person Greg refers to is one of my mates, who lives here in Sydney, and has over 25 years in national and international broadcasting.

Understood, Phil. I'll be sure to get out of the way if I'm there mate.
