It was the University of Queensland’s turn to host CAUTHE this year and the conference was held in the Sofitel in Brisbane – with a lovely view for us exhibitors of Anzac Square. Noel Scott and his team of volunteers did a great job of organising especially as there were more delegates this year!
As usual, it was a successful trip for Channel View and a great chance to catch up with a lot of our authors and meet new people.
There were some thought-provoking keynotes from Stefan Gössling and Ulrike Gretzel and the Great Debate was won by the Aussies this year – in keeping with general sporting results!
UQ arranged for the conference cocktail reception to be held at the Customs House situated on Eagle St Pier, which was a lovely venue with great views of the Story Bridge – designed by the same man who designed the Sydney Harbour Bridge (fun fact!)
The conference finished with a great evening of dinner and dancing – made even better by an awesome YMCA performance from the UQ staff!
After the conference I went to watch some cricket at the GABBA – though haunted by the Ashes memories…
We’re looking forward to next year’s CAUTHE which will be hosted by Southern Cross University.
