Are you ready for the CPAQ Conference?

The 2024 CPAQ Conference offers an EPIC opportunity to connect with other operators, learn from industry leaders and celebrate our amazing industry. 
This event is held in conjunction with the National Conference, so why not turn your Gold Coast Conference experience into a week long adventure! 
While we are finalising our program (to be released in late March) and confirming speakers (you will love them!) we thought we could give you a little peeking through the curtain to start getting ready. 
We would like to send a big thank you to our Naming Rights partner, Bunnings Trade. The Bunnings Trade team, and several of their partners, will be onsite during the conference to answer all your questions.

What else… 
Win the CPAQ CEO! 
This year, you need to earn your raffle tickets – for that to happen you need to visit our conference sponsors as they will have a book of raffle tickets and can decide how many to give you. 
The more you interact with these sponsors the more tickets you are likely to earn from them! 
While we are still receiving and negotiating the prizes, we have one we could announce now to make you want to earn these tickets: 
  • Michelle Weston, the CPAQ CEO, will do a week of work experience in your park! 
Just imagine you having the CEO of CPAQ working alongside you for an entire week and the tasks you could get her to help you with! 
At the end of our sessions on Tuesday we will draw the winners of the conference raffle – you will have to be in the room to win the prize so don’t skip this session!
