THE Global Alliance, which comprises five world-class, purpose-built convention centres across four continents, recently launched its seamless conferencing service for international events.

Current Global Alliance members are: The Durban International Convention Centre (South Africa); Adelaide Convention Centre (Australia); Centro Banamex (Mexico); ACC Liverpool (United Kingdom); Boston Convention & Exhibition Centre and Hynes Convention Centre (United States of America).

The service has been designed to benefit clients organising international events that rotate around the globe by transferring a detailed understanding of a particular congress or event requirements to the next host convention centre. Using a series of inter-venue processes, Global Alliance members will take a full de-brief of the event and transfer this knowledge to their associate venue member ready for the next or future event. Members will even attend the event, where appropriate, in order to fully appreciate the on-site requirements ahead of welcoming events to the next venue.

Global Alliance chair and chief executive officer of the Durban International Convention Centre (ICC), Julie-May Ellingson, said: “Global Alliance aims to minimise the need to brief venue teams about their event needs from scratch, saving time and effort on the part of the organiser and making for an altogether more professional and seamless transfer between venues and countries.

“Our members know from experience that this personal touch can make all the difference between a good event and a great event; Global Alliance members aspire to delivering excellence throughout all member venues.”
