Rehab for Kids 2023
2 – 3 March 2023
The Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre
The Rehab For Kids Conference was held 2-3 March 2023 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. Iceberg Events was proud to organise this conference bringing together paediatric rehabilitation workers from around Australia.
The conference attracted physiotherapists, occupational therapists, nurses and academics working in the largest paediatric hospitals and private practices around Australia. Leading academics from Canada, Belgium and Rome presented keynote presentations along with local Brisbane speaker Kerry-Lee Gockel.
Iceberg Events were involved with all aspects of organising the Conference, which was a great success.
Biggest Challenge: The 2023 conference was the first time this conference has been held in a convention centre and outsourced to a PCO. This provided uncertainty around the total delegate numbers. Registrations increased dramatically in the final weeks before the conference. Strong relationships with the venue meant that changes were able to be made last minute to accommodate the growing numbers.
1. First time this conference has been held outside of a hospital.
2. First in-person conference in 5 years.
3. International and domestic speakers from around Australia attended in person.
The Rehab For Kids Conference was an outstanding success bringing together 306 participants from around Australia in a truly collegiate environment. Iceberg Events successfully managed all the challenges of the event with creativity and charm.
