Business Events Resources

At Heritage we understand that planning a business meeting through to a large conference or trade show can be a little daunting. So we have created this resources section to help you with some of the decisions you will need to make as you plan your event.  Get an understanding of our industry jargon, use a checklist to make sure you have your Audio Visual (AV) order ready, understand the nuances of dietary requirements and your host responsibility, and make sure you select the best seating layout for your event.

Unsure where to hold your next business event?  Download the buyer familiarisation reports from around the country and if you are interested in being a participant on a buyers familiarisation then read the What Is A Familiarisation? guide so you understand the expectation on a "famil".
