As a result of the recent announcement by NSW Premier Barry O’Farrell regarding the closure of the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre for three years, Meetings & Events Australia (MEA) will be hosting a free information session for all industry people to hear directly from Infrastructure NSW on what the changes mean for the industry.
To be held in conjunction with the MEA 2012 National Conference next week, this important addendum will be an opportunity for the industry and related stakeholders to hear from Infrastructure NSW what work has already been undertaken and to ask questions about the future of the site.
Linda P Gaunt, Chief Executive Officer, Meetings & Events Australia invite meetings and events professionals and industry stakeholders to join this significant discussion.
“This is a great opportunity for the meetings and events industry to come along and ask the questions they want answered. It is a substantial announcement for our industry and this session is a chance to hear from colleagues, stakeholders and to ‘have your say’,” stated Gaunt.
Speakers at the update will be:
- Tim Parker – Infrastructure NSW
- Gary Thomas – Infrastructure NSW
- Linda P Gaunt, CEO – Meetings & Events Australia
- Lyn Lewis-Smith, CEO – BESydney
The session will take place on Tuesday 24 April, Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre from 7.00am – 8.30am at the MEA National Conference.
