Thousands leave Peak Crossing after successful conference

THE quiet town of Peak Crossing has seen a lot more traffic on its roads as thousands have travelled to Ivory's Rock Conference Centre for the international peace convention.

The five day conference, which will end today, is expected to inject more than $2 million into the local economy.

Ivory's Rock Conference Centre managing director Brian Murray said the event had attracted delegates from 67 countries.

"The conference is about personal peace and well-being and has been held on a regular basis since 1992," he said.

"Key note speaker, Prem Rawat, is a recognised international ambassador of peace.

"His talks are both entertaining and uplifting and he travels the world speaking to audiences in many different contexts ranging from students at universities to inmates in prisons.

"People enjoy coming to these events at Ivory's Rock to take time out of their busy schedules and to be reminded of the importance of personal peace and fulfilment in their lives and to enjoy five days in a tranquil, beautiful, rural environment."
