Held from 10-12 August at Coolangatta, the three-day conference is expected to draw 125 delegates. A point of difference from previous years will be the strategy day running on Friday from 9.30 till 4.30, aimed at supplier company leaders.

“There’s going to be some very high profile speakers,” said Geoff Brennan, manager of strategic solutions. “This event has already sold out.”

Speakers and their topics include Hagop Tchamkertenian, national policy and research manager of Printing Industries: industry trends; Kit Andrews, Canon Australia: key issues facing corporate Australia; Phillip Lyons, Stora Enzo: environment; Susan Clarke, Westpac: sustainability in the supply chain; Lincoln Hopper, Mission Australia: community support; Michael O’Brien, ANZ: building business relationships and Hank Jonjen, Centrelink: communications and public relations. Attendees will also have the chance to ask the presenters questions afterwards.

After being recently bought by Toll, many within the industry are keen to know what’s in store for Stream Solutions. CEO Andrew Price will speak about this, along with other developments for the company.

Colour management and information sharing will take centre stage on Saturday. Brennan believes that colour management is “an important area to focus on” while information sharing will be based on last year’s speed meetings.

“This year will have a drop-in, drop-out format so that all Stream businesses will be represented,” he said.

Saturday night will be topped off with the Supplier of the Year announcements and awards. “These social events are a highlight,” Brennan explained. “We have both our welcome dinner on Friday and gala dinner on Saturday but we’re not talking black tie, it’s laid back.”

Brennan believes that the event will be a success for all those who attend. “It gives suppliers a key opportunity to meet suppliers of Stream in an informal environment,” he says. “We all come away feeling a lot more informed.”
