Year in review – 2023 Highlights

It’s been an incredible year of growth and learning for JTPM.

We’ve achieved so much, delivering more than 77 meaningful events across 3 countries and 4 States and Territories, including a wide variety of in-person, virtual and hybrid conferences, gala dinners, forums, summits, showcases, exhibitions, awards nights, hack-a-thons, boat tours and even on epic Global 48-hour event!

In addition to al the glowing testimonials from clients, and their guests, our work was also recognised with 4 business awards. But we don’t just do it for the praise and accolades…

Making an impact on our local and global community, by creating exceptional event experiences and fosters better connections and conversations about important topics like climate change and health, is something we are deeply committed to and proud of.

And we’re so happy to announce that we’ve also enabled 50 young people to continue their education and follow their dreams, through our pro-bono partnership with Western Chances!
