From the Conference Chair
is with the greatest of pleasure that I invite you and your colleagues
to the 21st annual Meetings and Events Conference in Alice Springs, Northern Territory. The conference promises to be one of the
best in MEA's history being staged in the beautiful surrounds
of Central Australia. You are in for an unforgettable experience.
The conference theme of Sharing Stories, Sharing Knowledge will
unfold in front of you in the land of the Arrente people. The
program committee has been working hard to produce a program
that is both relevant to all industry members and also thought
provoking. As well as assembling an array of diverse speakers
across many topics, you will have an opportunity to share your
stories and knowledge.
The social committee has also been hard at work assembling some
of the best entertainment and hospitality that the Northern Territory
has to offer. The famous Territorian hospitality will be on show
for you all to experience at every corner!
I encourage you to come along and support this wonderful event.
You will leave this conference enriched in knowledge and invigorated
in the soul after seeing, experiencing and sharing Australia's real outback experience.
