The conference programme includes what is colourful about Melbourne and the Conference Dinner and the Conference itself are in locations that meet the high standards expected of this great city. The programme will focus on the Conference Theme and feature many speakers who will both entertain and share their knowledge for the benefit of Delegates. More about our colourful speakers here.

Dates are Friday 7, Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 September 2018.

The venue for the conference is Quay West Conference Centre, Melbourne located in Southgate on the bank of the Yarra River next to the celebrated Victorian Arts precinct and just a short walk from the CBD. A modern and sophisticated conference venue, it affords us great flexibility for our planned programme and is at the heart of the city’s transport hub.

The Conference Theme is - "Perception & Colour"

The conference programme will commence on Friday, September 7 with a 'Colour Walkabout' to introduce delegates to the colourful aspects of the Arts precincts and many other Architectural and Artisan features of Melbourne. Details here.

This will set the tone of the conference in terms of linking what we all observe and perceive around us, and how this will later be addressed in the presentations and activities of our theme as evoked in our colourful conference logo.

Registration, booked tour assembly point, and the self-guided Walkabout tour information will be available from 9:30am at the Quay West Conference Centre, Room 1 on Friday 7th September day 1 of the Conference. Guided tours will commence between 10 - 10.30 am, with a choice of options. A selection of self-guided tour options will also be available.

The Society's AGM for 2018 will commence at 4:30pm in Room 1 Quay West Conference Centre, which will be followed by the Welcome Reception from 5:00pm to 7:00pm in the Jarrah Bar part of the Quay West Hotel and Conference Centre complex.

Saturday's presentations will commence at 9:00am and end at 5:00pm. Program HERE.

The Conference Dinner will be at 7:00pm at Pure South Dining, Southgate in their upstairs room with views over the Yarra to the recently renovated Flinders Street Station, an iconic building and part of Melbourne’s history.

Sunday will be a combination of presentations and workshops commencing at 9:00 am and the conference will wrap up at approx 5:00pm. Program HERE.

Our speaker programme ensures that we have presentations covering colour measurement and analysis, the evolution of colour from the artist to architectural colours, the creative use of light, how imagination in the form of image media can be manipulated by colour, how foods are perceived by their colour, plus much much more.

Registration rates are $560 for Members and $655 for non Members, with the conference dinner included. Tickets to the dinner can be purchased for delegate partners at the time of booking for $120 each.

Student Fee is $150 for Members, $235 for non Members - the conference dinner is not included in this ticket but Students have the option to purchase a ticket for the dinner at the time of booking at $120 each.
