Special welcome for PPG’s 10th anniversary conference

A traditional indigenous Australian dance will welcome Project Professionals Group members and sponsors at the project forwarding organisation’s 10th anniversary annual conference at the Langham Hotel in Melbourne, Australia, from 6-8 September 2017.

PPG founder and general manager Kevin Stephens said the Welcome to Australia Performance will be presented by The Open Fire Aboriginal Dance Troup from the Gunnai people of south-east Australia.

Mr Stephens said the One Fire Dance Troupe is one of Melbourne’s leading indigenous dance troupes and has performed nationally and internationally.

He said in addition to the welcome function, sponsor and member presentations, the two-day conference included a networking cruise on the Yarra River that flows through the city of Melbourne on its way to Port Phillip Bay.

“The 10th anniversary conference is a very special event and provides several corporate and social activities to celebrate this significant organisational milestone,” Mr Stephens said.

“PPG conference delegates will travel from over 40 different countries to attend this event to make and renew friendships and business links.”

Major conference sponsor presentations include AAL Shipping, BBC Chartering Australia Pty Ltd, Port Corpus Christi USA, and Volga-Dnepr-Unique Air Cargo, USA.
