Conference Round-Up, APAC HE Fest 2016
Every year, we bring together our customers in the Asia Pacific region to showcase our technology products, provide a wealth of insightful guest keynote speakers and, of course, have a lot of fun. This year, the conference badged HE Fest, was no exception…
Delegates travelled from far and wide across the APAC region, to arrive in the beautiful location of Queenstown, New Zealand - our spot for the two-day festivities. Aside a stunning turquoise blue lake and framed by the generous mountains of the Remarkable and Coronet peaks, the delegation had chance to soak in the delightful view over a Hokey Pokey ice cream (a local delicacy!) and network with other HE providers from across New Zealand, Australia and Malaysia.
Speakers included Ian Marshman, University of Melbourne, Kate Thorpe, Monash University as well as Dr Cate Gribble, a senior research fellow at RMIT.
After such an insightful conference, the guests engaged in a fun evening with a three course meal, drinks and the infamous documentary star and fellow New Zealander, Te Radar, who regaled his audience with witty tales from New Zealand’s potted history.
One delegate said “It [the conference] was a chance to meet a variety of people from other institutions and companies. Overall the conference was excellent.”
