MEA OFFICES Web: www.meetingsevents.com.au NATIONAL OFFICE Level 1, Suites 5 & 6 1 mcLaren Street north Sydney nSW 2060 Tel: 02 9929 5400 fax: 02 9929 5600 contact: Linda Gaunt email: firstname.lastname@example.org Yps rEcIpIENT cOMMENTs ON ThE cONfErENcE MEA received comments from some of the Young Professional Scholarship recipients who attended the conference in Adelaide. Here’s what they had to say… “The conference sessions were extremely informative and I came away with many new ideas. I was particularly impressed with Nigel Collin’s sessions about developing creative organisations. I found the panel discussions about the industry particularly enlightening and was encouraged to become more learned about the issues faced by our industry in this rather challenging climate. I feel honoured to be the recipient of the Young Professional Scholarship and hope that the conference in Adelaide was only one of many amazing experiences yet to come.” Alexis Linton Event Planners Australia - NSW “My experience at this conference has been integral in both my personal and professional development. It’s been absolutely invigorating and I look forward to my growing career in the meetings and events industry. Thanks to the inspirational professionals that I met, I have now set new goals. Christie Knox Special Events has a lovely sound to it.” Christie Knox Epicure Catering at the Arts Centre - VIC “I left the conference with a much greater appreciation of the industry we work in. Through conversations with people from all sectors of the industry, going to the sessions and physically seeing how a large conference operates, I was provided a “Brilliant Blend”. Here at the bureau while we do deal with all branches of the industry, to actually sit down and speak with individuals about what they do and their concerns I am now far better able to relate and understand the meetings and events industry from different perspectives. It was amazing to see how a large conference operates, from the catering, to the 126 mice.net “MEA 2009 certainly was a brilliant blend; of people, ideas, knowledge, experiences and optimism for the year ahead. As a first timer to a MEA conference, I was totally impressed and engaged by every experience and interaction I had throughout the conference. I thought the diversity and range of session topics and guest speakers was excellent and I took something practical away from every session I attended. The Young MEA Forum was a valuable way to ‘break the ice’ and begin the conference. The guest speaker was dynamic and insightful and it was the first networking seminar I have been to where I have walked away and been able to actively put into practice what I’ve learnt. The conference has provided me with an unparalleled opportunity to network with and learn from industry professionals, as well as strengthen the contacts I already have. I would like to say a big thank you to Ungerboeck Systems for providing the Young Professional Scholarship, without which I would not have been able to attend. I would also like to thank the MEA team who were extremely helpful.” Natalie Bell Associated Advertising & Promotions - NT entertainment, to the decorating of venues for the social events; I find the logistics involved to successfully execute such a phenomenal event.” Dwayne Birtles Canberra Convention Bureau – ACT “The MEA 2009 conference was a very positive experience for me, one which I’m grateful for and to have had the opportunity to have at an early stage in my career is a huge benefit. The conference has allowed me to understand the broader meeting and events industry, make new contacts and improve current ones. The YIP Scholarship is a fantastic initiative and I hope it will be awarded for many years to come.” Fiona Gurd SAPMEA Meetings Management – SA NEW SOUTH WALES Level 1, Suites 5 & 6 1 mcLaren Street north Sydney nSW 2060 Tel: 02 9929 5400 fax: 02 9929 5600 contact: anne camenzind email: email@example.com AUSTRALIAN CAPITAL TERRITORY c/- Level 1, Suites 5 & 6 1 mcLaren Street north Sydney nSW 2060 Tel: 02 9929 5400 fax: 02 9929 5600 contact: Lisa Philps email: firstname.lastname@example.org QUEENSLAND Po Box 5186 South Brisbane QLD 4101 Tel: 07 3286 4977 fax: 07 3286 2630 contact: elizabeth atherton email: email@example.com NORTHERN TERRITORY c/- Level 1, Suites 5 & 6 1 mcLaren Street north Sydney nSW 2060 Tel: 02 9929 5400 fax: 02 9929 5600 email: firstname.lastname@example.org VICTORIA 234 macaulay road north melbourne Vic 3051 Postal address: Po Box 520 north melbourne Vic 3051 Tel: 03 9329 5716 fax: 03 9329 2704 contact: alison Johnson email: email@example.com TASMANIA c/- Level 1, Suites 5 & 6 1 mcLaren Street north Sydney nSW 2060 Tel: 02 9929 5400 fax: 02 9929 5600 contact: Lisa Philps email: firstname.lastname@example.org SOUTH AUSTRALIA c/- Level 1, Suites 5 & 6 1 mcLaren Street north Sydney nSW 2060 Tel: 08 8125 2280 fax: 08 8125 2298 contact: Kate Duldig email: email@example.com WESTERN AUSTRALIA c/- Level 1, Suites 5 & 6 1 mcLaren Street north Sydney nSW 2060 Tel: 02 9929 5400 fax: 02 9929 5600 contact: Lisa Philps email: firstname.lastname@example.org
