YRD Event Management provides the services and infrastructure to ensure that your conference is carefully prepared, professionally managed and financially controlled so that your goals can be achieved. As part of the planning, management and controls, YRD provides quality personal service, reports, fiscal budgeting, banking and liaison throughout each event.

With over 100 years of combined experience, our team will be available to you before, during and after the conference. One of our Conference Directors, Mary Sparksman or Kate Murphy, will personally manage your event.

It is through our experience working with a diverse range of different events and organisations that we have developed the appreciation of what our clients seek to achieve by engaging professional event managers.
