The organisers of AIME are pleased to announce that AIME 2010 has been listed as a State Finalist in the MEA Victoria Meetings & Events Australia (MEA) Industry Awards for the Exhibition of the Year.
Sally de Swart, Event Director, states, “This is wonderful news to receive just as AIME 2011 has come to a close and we are very proud that the 2010 exhibition has once again been recognised by the prestigious MEA Industry Awards. AIME has been awarded the Exhibition of the Year by MEA for the last two years (2008 and 2009 shows) and of course we hope to retain this title for a third consecutive year.
“Being a finalist again is testament to the hard work and commitment of our team in organising the premier event for the meetings and incentives industry in the Asia-Pacific region.”
Sandra Chipchase, the Melbourne Convention + Visitors Bureau’s (MCVB) Chief Executive Officer (CEO), said “AIME’s recognition in the MEA Awards yet again demonstrates the event’s significance in driving business and networking opportunities for attendees from all over the world. The exhibition and its complementary events also provides a fantastic opportunity to showcase Melbourne and Victoria’s Business Events infrastructure.”
AIME is owned by the MCVB and managed by Reed Travel Exhibitions. The MEA Awards recognise excellent business practice in the meetings and events industry with the Victorian State Awards set to take place on Thursday, 10 March at the Sebel Albert Park in Melbourne. Each state winner is entered into the National MEA Awards.
The state winner with the highest awarded score in each category then becomes the National Winner. These National Winners will be announced and presented at the 2010 MEA National Awards Night, held on 19 April 2011 at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.
