Each year Meetings & Events Australia honours the achievement of an outstanding contributor to the meetings and events industry. 

The MEA Outstanding Industry Contribution Award was introduced for the first time in 2006. The aim of this award is to recognise the value of an individual who has contributed significantly to the advancement of the events industry in Australia.

MEA has 15 people on its honour roll who have inspired us through their achievements who have made their own contribution to creating a dynamic and professional industry.

This Award recognises an exceptional individual who is highly-respected and who leads discussion, supports change and who nurtures the industry leaders of tomorrow.

For the first time since its inception, MEA will be inviting the Australian events industry to nominate someone who they feel has contributed substantially to growing and steering this sector. Nominees do not need to be members of Meetings & Events Australia however those nominating the individual will need to be a member. All nominations will be confidential and will be reviewed by an independent committee.
