Jessica Brown an avid poler, now holds the license for PoleCon in Australia and is working with her team to make the first event a huge success.
“I couldn’t be more excited for PoleCon Australia!” PoleCon CEO Colleen Jolly exclaimed. “The Australian pole community is rich and diverse; when Jessica contacted me about wanting to start a PoleCon Australia, it just made perfect sense.”
When asked ‘Why PoleCon?’ Jessica responded: “I did a lot of research about different events before contacting Colleen. What I love about PoleCon is the community. I wanted to bring that to Australia.”
“PoleCon’s goal is for everyone to see and appreciate the many facets of pole,” Jolly said. “The convention is a cross between an industry association-type convention and a public event. It is a place to come together, from each other and grow. PoleCon keeps growing state-side, I can’t wait to see what happens this April in Sydney!”
