As the saying goes – all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. And at ACAPMA’s National Conference & Expo, you can combine work with play and reap the benefits.

With a series of outstanding social events and guest speakers, this year’s conference, with the theme Changing the Dynamics, will be the highlight of the industry calendar.

“A social highlight will be the White Pool Party, an all-white party, to be held in the beautiful surrounds of the Marriott lagoon and pool, is just one of the extraordinary social events we have planned this year,” ACAPMA CEO Mark McKenzie said.

“As regular delegates will know, ACAPMA prides itself on not only presenting the latest industry information, but delivering functions that are a feast for the senses, with spectacular staging, world-class entertainment and an experience you will remember for years to come.”

The conference kicks off on September 22 with a Welcome Party and Expo featuring a keynote speech from up and coming V8 Supercar star, Chaz Mostert.

“This is a great opportunity to mix and mingle with likeminded business people, reigniting old contacts and making a few new ones,” Mark said.

The following morning, guests will enjoy a business insight breakfast, with a guest speaker still to be finalised.

On the final night of the National Conference & Expo, on September 25, guests will be drawn into a seductive world of cabaret with the fun, fresh and devilishly unpredictable Cirque de Burlesque

“The Conference & Expo is more than a challenging and educational series of plenary sessions – it is the perfect opportunity to network and to promote your business,” Mark said.

“We believe the variety and depth of our keynote speakers, along with the range of social events on offer will make this event the highlight of the year for the downstream petroleum industry.”
