Knowledge Exchange

Knowledge Shop® has been helping accountants do what they need to do (and a bit more) since 2000. The company was born out of the frustration experienced by a profession trying to keep on top of an increasingly complex tax, super and regulatory environment. Knowledge Shop helps fill in those gaps.

This innovative company wanted to share their knowledge with leadership teams from public practice across Australia – accountants, advisers, auditors and self-managed super fund professionals – and the 2019 Knowledge Exchange was born.

The objective of this corporate event was to immerse participants in the conference philosophy – innovation and technical excellence – to help drive the professional development of participants and the performance of their firms.  Featuring leading professionals who covered key development areas in interactive and illustrative ways, the conference went deeper than mere technical sessions, taking hold of themes, debating and working them.

With a culture of taking work seriously, but not themselves, Knowledge Shop needed an event planning company to create fun and funky spaces for guests to network and connect with sponsors and those in the industry.

So, on a glorious Gold Coast Winter day in June, guests gathered for two and a half days of impacting knowledge exchange.

Held at The Star in Broadbeach, our marketplace was displayed in the Gold Coast section, one third of the full ballroom.

We wanted to style the corporate event to feel like an outdoor market with festoon lights, cluster lounge areas and lots of greenery to bring the outside in.  For this theme, we loved our range of pallet furniture to create an industrial and raw furniture look. Pallet walls, bars, benches and pods were clustered together to form sponsor booths and also relaxed seating areas for cosy chats.  These were mixed with linen couches and soft furnishings in shades of blue to suit the conference branding.

Guests were treated to live entertainment by an incredible sleight of hand magician who drew awe-filled reactions from stunned guests with his how-did-he-do-that!? tricks.

The event was a huge success, and we loved welcoming this prestigious clientele from around Australia to our glorious Gold Coast.
