In an effort to make a conference a productive and energetic experience, the Southern Sun group conducted research on how conferences have traditionally been run. The results of the research revealed that most conferencing experiences are impersonal and rigid in their format, which can often be counterproductive to innovative thinking. There was definitely a need for a fresh approach – and so the concept of tailor-made Signature Conferences was born. A team of professional event planners ensures that right from the initial planning stages through the to final speeches, every need is taken care of, guaranteeing complete peace of mind and a memorable conference experience.
