Beautiful weather, brilliant hospitality and a great venue greeted the delagates to the 2007 QICA conference in Maryborough. A little rain on Tuesday night was the biggest disruption for a conference in such a fantastic location!

Planning and organisation is always a big job and even though we all said our thankyou's at conference, once again, we would like to extend our gratitude to Kelli, Lisa and their team, as well as the huge band of volunteers from the Maryborough community who made us feel so welcome.

A big thanks also goes to all of our speakers who gave up their time to travel to Maryborough. Their presentations gave valuable information to old hands and newbies alike and you can find some of the presentations, which can be downloaded below.

Finally, a conference is not possible without support from the many sponsors who assist in keeping the costs for delegates to a minimum. All sponsors are recognised below.

We look forward to seeing you in Rockhampton in 2008!
