The Client & Target Audience:
The Australian and New Zealand Testing Board (ANZTB) is the regional body representing and supporting software testing professionals in Australia and New Zealand.
The ANZTB was constituted in Sydney in August 2005 as a non-profit organisation. It is a member of the International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB).
In conjunction with the ISTQB, the ANZTB is responsible for providing a consistent trusted accreditation system for the education and training of professional testers. The board develops, adopts and promulgates standards for software testing, training course development and professional qualification.
The ANZTB is responsible for certification of testing professionals to the standards and syllabi laid down by the ISTQB. The ANZTB also acts to generate public awareness of the economic and risk mitigation benefits that professional software testing practice offers.
The ANZTB comprises a group of highly experienced professionals in software testing who volunteer their time to the development, maintenance and promotion of the ISTQB Certified Tester Program in Australia and New Zealand
The Role of ICE:
The Conference Committee members were professionals from the industry who were volunteer members of the ANZTB Board and did not have the time, resources or expertise to coordinate such a large event.
After a successful inaugural event in 2009 in Sydney, ICE was contracted to professionally coordinate all aspects of the event for both the 2010 event in Melbourne and the upcoming 2011 event in Auckland, New Zealand. ICE's role included liaising with all service providers, sponsors, exhibitors and delegates to ensure a successful outcome was achieved.
The ANZTB introduced their national conference in 2009, as a way to provide value to members by giving them access to leading testing professionals from all over the world.
After a successful conference in 2009, the ANZTB wanted to further increase the awareness of the conference as well as their own brand by building on the quality of the program and speakers.
