Social 2017

ANZACBS Annual Conference Social Events

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Perth in a little over two months!  Shortly we will be able to provide you with the full Conference Program.  In the meantime, however, Perth is a wonderful, vibrant city, and we want to make sure you see more than just the hotel (even if the hotel is very, very lovely)!
Our key details are on the flyer below – and here is a little additional information. Importantly, Partners are welcome at all social events, so please make sure you RSVP their attendance.  Complimentary Welcome Drinks are for delegates only, though partners are welcome at their own expense.  The Welcome Drinks, Karaoke and Follies are not suitable for children. Please advise if children will be attending with you for any of our other events.

All bookings and RSVPs can be made HERE!

October 18th 

Our social committee have teamed up with Oh Hey for a personalised walking tour of the best sites, eats and drinks around Perth CBD.  Taking off from the Pan Pacific at 6pm, this walking tour will last approximately 3 hours.  Great for our international and interstate visitors – or those who want to play Tourist in their own Town.  Bookings $30, food and drink at own expense.

October 19th 

Welcome drinks are included in your Conference Registration, all you need to do to claim your free drink is RSVP. Stay on for dinner afterwards across the road at the Public House.  Food and drink is at your own expense,

October 20th 

Going to the Hawkers Markets in Forrest Chase is a great way to experience multicultural Perth at its best, with an amazing array of cheap eats from across the globe.  RSVP so we know to wait for you in the lobby before we walk down together.  And after…. Karaoke is a bit of an ANZ ACBS tradition!  We have booked out the whole venue at Ferrara for two hours of exclusive use, and we are welcome to stay on longer when the doors open to the public.  Your ticket price includes a discount on your first drink. RSVP early for this one, as we need to confirm numbers with the venue a few weeks in advance.



Follies 2017

If you’ve been to an ACBS conference before, you know the delight you are in for. If this is your first time… Follies is a bit of an institution at ACBS Events.  An evening where the entertainment is provided by… YOU (or at least some of you)!  An evening of light hearted entertainment where we live out our hexaflex practices of defusion, acceptance, and committed action!  Whether you sing, dance, do sketches or stand-up, all acts are welcome on the Follies stage.  All we ask is that material is original – if it’s been done at a conference before, bring us something new.  Not inspired yet? Don’t worry, that’s what the conference is for – plenty of fodder, and plenty of seasoned folliers looking for new partnerships.  Not keen on the limelight?  Lucky for you we need an audience too – no pressure to perform, just bring the applause.  Then groove into the night to the beats of world-renowned (at least in ACBS circles) DJ CFunc (Aka Eric Morris)!  Nibbles platters and your first drink are included in the ticket price.





Can’t wait to party (and by party, we mean network professionally) with you soon.
