18-Mar-2010 | The Meetings and Events Industry Awards for Tasmania were held in Hobart this week with Tasmanian Convention Bureau members taking out all three top awards!
The MEA Awards recognise excellent business practice in the Meetings & Events Industry. It encourages industry professionals to excel in the achievement of their business and personal goals, and reward those who achieve outstanding results.
The award kicks off an already successful year for the Hotel Grand Chancellor with 46 confirmed conferences in 2010 bringing in close to 13,000 delegates to the state.
Scene Change Tasmania took out the ‘Technical and Creative Productions’ category which is open to members who provide staging, production, and/or multimedia for meetings and special events.
The winner of the 2009 Meetings & Events Industry Award for Association or Government Meeting of the Year was Leishman Associates for their Tertiary Education Management Conference ‘Investing for Success’.
The Tertiary Education Management Conference is an annual conference of over 500 delegates running over 4 days. The conference is aimed at managers in the Tertiary Education sector.
Tasmanian award winners will now go on to compete for the national Meetings and Events Industry awards to be held in Melbourne in April this year.
Winners enjoy considerable profile within the meetings industry and with the general buying public.
Members self-nominate for an Award by addressing a range of criteria that are relevant to the particular category or categories they are entering. The submissions are then judged by a panel of industry and independent judges.
