Organising a conference is about to get a whole lot easier thanks to the new online platform VMSearch, recently launched by the experienced conference team from VMS Event & Conference Logistics. Major hotel chains including Accor, Hyatt, Pan Pacific Group, Marriott Hotels, Mantra, Rydges and more were quick to sign on as partners, signalling their commitment and belief in the platform’s many benefits. 

The Hon. Scott Morrison MP, Member for Cook and Federal Treasurer, was recently briefed by the local Sutherland Shire business about their platform, which will assist conference organisers across Australia and the Asia Pacific by allowing them to search for and book accommodation, conferencing facilities and more through the platform.

In reviewing the platform, the Treasurer said, “It always impresses me how local businesses think outside of the square and come up with solutions that offer something more for their customers and clients. Successfully-run conferences and events are a key element of our economy and it’s very positive to see VMS drawing on their experience to meet the needs of a changing marketplace.” 

Libby Schrafft, Managing Director of VMS, believes that the platform is the next step in the evolution of the professional conference industry, commenting, “we found that while people are looking to book rooms and venues online they are also looking for a company that can use their experience to handle conference logistics and more. Government, non-government and the private sector use conferences to engage, educate and facilitate relationships, and VMS Search will assist them do to this in an easy and convenient way.” 

The platform will allow customers to search, source and review the best price and most appropriate venue for their upcoming conference. It will also offer customers a great way to connect with customers and promote their services.
