“… For several years now the ASCCP has engaged YRD to manage and organise these events.  YRD has consistently provided us with excellence in event management, including transparent and high standards for financial management and the protection of our intellectual property. 


Having found those qualities in YRD, we have now retained them on a 3 year contract to provide services for all of our events and to act as our secretariat which includes the management of membership records, fees and journals.”

“In particular, I would like to highlight that YRD has developed a personal working relationship with all sponsors and have been extremely successful in securing past and new sponsors for each meeting. Their attention to detail and personal touch allows me to trust in their abilities to ensure that all sponsors are well taken care of. The sponsors have commented in the past that they enjoy working with the YRD team because of their professionalism and the high level of individual service they receive.”

“I have worked with YRD over the past 13 years as a chairperson, committee member and major sponsor at conferences.  Kate Murphy, Mary Sparksman and the YRD team are experienced in the delivery of full conference management and it is their enthusiastic attitude and professional attention to the needs of the delegates, sponsors and speakers that distinguishes their managed conference and that enables me to say that I look forward to working with YRD again for our event in 2019.”  Maree Crawford, Chairperson ASGC 2019

Extract from Grand Chancellor


“I have had the pleasure of working with Mary and the team and YRD (Aust) Pty Ltd on a number of occasions over the past eight years. Most recently the hotel was the host venue for the Biennial Scientific Meeting of the Australian Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology. The conference, organised and managed by the team at YRD was one of a number of successful association conferences held in the venue last year. The event attracted a healthy number of delegates and proved to be a wonderful example of Tasmania s attraction as a conference destination.


I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of Mary and the team at YRD. Their professionalism is second to none. A successful event relies on in depth industry knowledge and open lines of communications and the team at YRD certainly possess both.”
