Thank you for accepting our invitation to attend Think 2018. We look forward to meeting and collaborating with you and we can't wait to share what's new and what's next at O.C. Tanner.

Planning for Think 2018

Please arrive no later than 4:00 PM on Wednesday, October 17th. Join us for a dinner reception beginning at 5:00 PM and relax at the luxurious Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort and Spa. Spend the next two days connecting, sharing, and dreaming with your peers. We’ll end Friday afternoon and leave you with time to enjoy the Gold Coast or head back home.

O.C. Tanner is pleased to pay for your Think 2018 travel expenses and help you book your flight.

A room at The Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort and Spa will be reserved in your name, and you will soon receive a reservation confirmation. If your corporate policy requires it, you may pay your own bill at check-in.
