Australia’s leading convention bureau, Business Events Sydney (BESydney), is ramping up for next week’s 25th Meetings and Events Australia (MEA) National Conference in Sydney, with three staff members and an Ambassador taking to the stage for sessions on the program.
BESydney representatives will tackle topics including the keys to securing event sponsors, the benefits of business events beyond tourism, the intricacies of destination marketing and the very timely discussion of the Sydney International Convention, Exhibition and Entertainment Precinct development.
The four sessions featuring BESydney representatives include:
- And now…. A word about sponsors!
Presented by Robyn Johnson, BESydney’s Head of Client Services
- Destination Marketing: Win Win Win!
Facilitated by Virginia Loyola, BESydney’s Head of Bid Management
- Open your mind to what’s happening with the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre Redevelopment
Co-presented by Lyn Lewis-Smith, BESydney Chief Executive Officer (CEO)
- Beyond Tourism Benefits of Business Events
Co-presented by Paul Harcombe, BESydney Ambassador and FIG 2010 Congress Director.
“The MEA conference is a prime opportunity to share our team’s expertise and insights. I would encourage any delegate with an interest in business events to join one of our sessions,” comments Lyn Lewis-Smith, CEO of BESydney.
“With the conference on our home soil this year, our staff have been highly involved, from the initial bid to host the conference, the planning and the program development. The four sessions BESydney is involved in next week, are the culmination of many months of hard work behind the scenes.”
BESydney’s Victoria Robins and Simon Shaw are members of the Local Host Committee and Ian Stuart, one of BESydney’s consultants, is the Co-chair of the Program Committee.
“I applaud the hard work of my staff and our Ambassador, Paul Harcombe, as well as all members of the MEA Local Host Committee and the team. The 2012 program reflects the industry’s desire, and need, to set its sights on the future and learn, collaborate and innovate,” concludes Lewis-Smith.
