The General Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust recently hosted 50 international visitors this month as part of the Asia Cemetery Funeral Expo and Conference tour.
Guests from funeral and cemetery organisations in Brazil, China, Mongolia, Hong Kong, Singapore and the United States were accompanied by GMCT staff and our CEO Jacqui Weatherill as they toured our cemetery sites on a field visit.
Delegates were impressed by the beauty of Fawkner Memorial Park’s natural landscape and toured the crematorium, mausolea, chapels and Chinese B section, before enjoying lunch set in the native bush landscape at Northern Memorial Park.
Held biennially, the Asia Cemetery Funeral Expo and Conference is the largest international event of its kind in Asia. The event is an opportunity for networking, sharing and learning for industry professionals representing funeral and cemetery organisations from around the world.
Australia was this year’s post-conference international tour destination and GMCT was pleased to be selected to be part of this showcase of innovative and best practice approaches in the Australian funeral & cemetery sector.
