The Role of ICE:
The conference committee members were professionals from the industry who were volunteering and did not have the time, resources or expertise to coordinate such a large event.
ICE was contracted to professionally coordinate all aspects of the event, this included liaising with all service providers, sponsors, exhibitors and delegates to ensure a successful outcome was achieved.
The project planning process involved the construction of a detailed critical path to monitor, update and evaluate the event criteria. ICE reported monthly to the conference committee.
