The Conference of Major Superannuation Funds (CMSF), to be held at the Gold Coast April 10-12, has advised that it has closed to new registrations, following a record number of planned delegates.

CMSF announced last week that it had closed its doors at just over 1,000 registrations, but would be maintaining a waiting list in case of cancellations. CMSF has always tried to have a balance between super fund trustees and executives and service provider nominees at its conferences. However, with a new larger venue this year, the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, the total number permitted was lifted from the average 700-750 of recent years to 1,000. The conference also has a larger exhibition space than previously. An incentives program, involving a prize of a trip for two to Hong Kong, has been put in place to encourage delegates to attend all of the exhibitors’ stands. The conference will be opened by Kim Beazley, the leader of the Opposition. Last year, the then parliamentary secretary assisting the Treasurer, Mal Brough, spoke at the conference, in Tasmania.
