Funktionality kicked off 2016 with cracker start, taking home not one but two awards at the Meetings & Events Australia (MEA) Industry Awards!
The prestigious awards program recognises excellence in the Meetings & Events Industry by encouraging industry professionals to excel in the achievement of their business and personal goals, rewarding those who achieve outstanding results. This year, the Funktionality team were honoured to be named winners of two esteemed awards – Director Tracy Wood for “Event Manager of the Year” and Melbi Langton for “Y MEA Future Leader of the Year”. Congratulations to the pair on a well-deserved win!
Tracy Wood – Event Manager of the Year
Tracy makes it her mission to inject colour, beauty and originality into special events, particularly the corporate world; after her own experiences in this sphere left her unenthused. Over the last 28 years she has certainly excelled in achieving this with her keen eye on developing styles, plus her innovative ability to make the familiar a fantasy once more. She continually inspires clientele with creativity and her natural magnetism. Combined with her wealth of knowledge, experience and organisational skills, it is no wonder she has built such trusted partnerships with suppliers, venues, and clients alike to assert her as a powerful and dynamic industry leader.
Melbi Langton – Y MEA Future Leader of the Year
