Meetings & Events Australia (MEA) and Infrastructure NSW met for discussions this week to address the vital measures required for the meetings and events industry once funding has been approved for the re-development of SCEC.
MEA Deputy Chair, Simon Baggs and Linda P Gaunt, Chief Executive Officer anticipate that the funding will be approved over the next few weeks.
Until now MEA had been involved behind the scenes providing commentary, but with the significant progress being made in the re-development agenda it is now time to keep members and the industry informed about the milestones that have been achieved.
“MEA has been working with a number of key industry practitioners to provide advice to Infrastructure NSW on the re-development as well as any additional requirements that arise during the re-build if this occurs,” commented Linda P Gaunt, Chief Executive Officer of MEA.
Throughout the re-development process MEA will be communicating all relevant news to the industry.
As Sydney forms an international gateway, MEA believes that information related to the construction of the precinct is relevant to each of its members and will be providing regular detailed updates.
It is important to note that at the Annual National MEA Conference, 21-24 April, to be held at SCEC, MEA will be presenting news about the development and key issues for the meetings and events industry.
This update will be free of charge for all who wish to attend and not restricted for conference delegates alone. MEA will also distribute other industry communications on this issue.
