Town Team Conference overview

The Town Teams Conference at the end of last week was a big hit!

There’s a buzz around smart furniture presently and our solar smart bin ‘Pulse’ was getting a lot of attention – and chat. Courtesy of HelloLampPost it was actually able to ‘talk’ to attendees – an entertaining Oz first.

We also had the opportunity to showcase Meet – Australia’s first DDA compliant smart bench (phone charging was popular) and HEI – the world’s most elegant solar street lighting system. All well received from the larger council community.

We all thought it was a really well organised, vibrant and (magnificently) catered event. Everyone was spoilt with the delicious Toby’s Estate coffee, lovely morning tea and food vans for lunch. Matt our sales manager is still talking about the pork belly at the Friday night networking.

“In all it was a great opportunity to talk to other community minded people. There were lots of interesting ideas shared on how councils and community can better connect.”

 

Well done Upbeat Events and all the attendees for making it a great day.

Please get in touch if you’d like to know more about our community focused approach and a range of products that help people in your neighbourhood connect.
